Join us: Freedom not Fear 2016


Decisions taken in Brussels impact our every-day lives. The EU is passing disproportionate governmental surveillance measures. Therefore, the Freedom not Fear conference in Brussels is a place where civil rights activists meet to discuss change. We invite you to join us for about three days of discussions, networking, protest & meetings with activists & politicians. We say NO to surveillance, data retention and PNR and demand the respect of our fundamental rights in the digital environment. Read our full list of demands from 2014.

Costs and application

Freedom Not Fear Brussels is for free and you don't have to register – just come, join and participate! FNF Brussels is non-profit, non-commercial and organised by volunteers who are working for free. This is only possible, when people help organise!

When and where?


From 14th – 17th October 2016 (Friday till Monday).

Freedom Not Fear starts on Friday evening. The official ending of the meeting shall be on Sunday evening, but there will be some more "action" on Monday, October 17th, as some people want to organize some meetings with people from the EU Commission and Parliament.


Since 2011 FNF 2016 takes place at “Mundo B”, Rue d'Edimbourg 26. Mundo B ist the home of some non-governmental organisations and a very lovely place with lots of space for our meeting.
