Today more than ever, European policy making is affecting our every day lives and our civil liberties in our home countries. Therefore, it is high time to show to our politicians, representatives and to every responsible person in the European institutions that we care. We we will not quietly accept directives, proposals or agreements anymore that are violating our fundamental rights as European citizens. We want to show our deepest concerns regarding the current European plans to review the data retention directive, to come to agreements with the US, Canada or Australia to transfer our passenger name records (PNR). We are very worried about the imminent signing of the ACTA and European projects to cut off Internet users for online infringements. The increasing number of unnecessary and disproportionate governmental surveillance measures as well as massive user data collection by companies on the Internet are more than worrying.

Revision as of 14:14, 21 August 2011


This is the page to co-ordinate the European Freedom not Fear weekend in Brussels in September 2011.

Contents

Join us: Freedom not Fear 2011 in Brussels

European policy making is affecting our every day lives and civil liberties more and more. The EU is increasingly imposing unnecessary and disproportionate governmental surveillance measures on us. We will not take this any longer. Let's carry our protest into the capital of the EU!

We invite you to join us for three days of:

  • protest (Saturday, 17 September 2011)
  • networking (Sunday, 18 September 2011) and
  • debate with Members of the European Parliament and EU Commission staff (Monday, 19 September 2011).

Let us get together, meet friends from other parts of Europe and tell the EU that we won't take that continuous erosion of our fundamental rights any longer.

Issues

"Freedom not fear 2011 - Defending fundamental rights in our networked world"

We say NO to data retention and PNR and we call for immediate measures and regulation of net neutrality.

When?

17. - 19. September 2011 (Saturday till Monday)

Where?

In Brussels, Belgium.

Structure

We would like to offer something more than only have a from-the-heart-coming protest march around Brussels. We will combine the protest march with a day of networking and a day of lobbying politicians and bureaucrats responsible for the rules and directives we are complaining about. That will give us a chance to exchange thoughts and concerns directly. And it could open our minds and horizons about what is happening in Brussels exactly.

We will thus have three days of "Freedom not fear" in Brussels:

Saturday - day of protest

  • arriving (if not possible on Friday)
  • preparation
  • protest march
  • spend a nice evening together

More information about Saturday, the day of protest

Saturday evening - Software Freedom Day - Ubuntu keysigning party

Together with some brussels Ubuntu users we are considering having a keysigning party in the evening in the context of the Software Freedom Day.

Sunday - day of networking

Call it a barcamp or not - on Sunday we will have space and time for:

  • workshops
  • lectures, speeches
  • meetings on special topics (data retention, pnr, net-neutrality, acta)
  • handicrafs
  • pieces of culture (music, film ...)

More information about Sunday, the day of networking/barcamp

Monday - day of discussion

Meeting and discussing with politicians and bureaucrats in charge.

More information about Monday, the day of discussion/lobbying

Monday evening - Brucon Closing Party

On Monday evening, there will be a closing party at the Havana Bar in Brussels, from 10pm onwards, and join folks from BruCON.

Line-up: - Joernchen of Phonoelit (http://www.phonoelit.org) - Mumpi of Phonoelit (http://www.phonoelit.org) - Keith Myers (http://www.myspace.com/djkeithmyers)

Cheers, BruCON crew!

Material

The central material site contains:

Traveling and accomodation

Find support in coming to Brussels and finding a place to sleep here.

Side events

Software Freedom day

Saturday, 17th of September is Software Freedom Day. We are thinking about having a keysigning party at the evening.

SFD is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.

Brucon conference

There is also the hacker / IT security conference BRUCON ("Hacking for b33r") in BXL on Monday and Tuesday after our weekend.

Donations

If you would like to support our undertaking, we are happy about every single cent donated. We promise to spend the money very carefully, not for our time and work but only for material and hardware.

Information on where and how to donate.

Important:
If you like to donate especially for this event, please use the keyword "Freedom not Fear Brussels" or shorter "FNF11BXL" in your bank transfer
