Assembly:Free Software Foundation Europe
|Brings|| We bring a lot of merchandise to refinance our costs. A lot means around 6 big packing cases and would be happy to have some space to store it. Also we have a 3m banner.
What makes our assembly interesting? We bring together a pan-European community of people interested in the political and societal aspects of Free Software. For our community, CCC and Fosdem are nowadays the biggest come-togethers and important for strategic planning involving other communities. In Hamburg we used to have a space behind our booth that we et up as our "hacking area" where there have been two tables an 8 or so schairs for people to sit down, hack and plan.
Every day we have a Free Software sing-along session that brings 50-70 people at our assembly to sing together the Free Software song.
Also we have been part of the noGame and we will bring the material again to run the game again.
Last but not least we use to have dozen or more self-organized sessions. In Leipzig we share a stage for this with the Rights & Freedoms compentence center. We are currently running a call for sessions for talks and workshops: https://fsfe.org/news/2017/news-20171024-01

Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to control technology.
Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives. It is important that this technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental rights like freedom of speech, freedom of press and privacy.
- helps individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination.
- enhances users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption.
- Encourages people to use and develop Free Software.
- Provides resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe
