Description The Free Software Foundation Europe is dedicated to spread software freedom as a way and a central pillar of a free society. We do lobbying & public relations and we offer legal advice and interest representation in favor of Free Software. This assembly is hosted for and by our members, friends and supporters to offer a common space to discuss, meet, hack and organise. Let's put the hacking back into politics!

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

Location

You will find our assembly in the Cluster Rights & Freedoms. The cluster itself is filling Saal 3 / Hall 3, which again is split half/half into the stage area and the assembly area. You find the FSFE assembly in the assembly area. (See here a supervision of the cluster with the stage on top and the fsfe-assembly on bottom-left.)

Saal 3 / Hall 3 is in the CCL-building, which is the "small" building on top-left in this graphic. In a side view, Saal 3 is on top right of the CCL-building.

The ultimate Free Software challenge

If you have been at the 33C3 you know that there will be noGame at the FSFE-Assembly : ) However, you can try the ultimate Free Software challenge that will let you dig deep into the history of Free Software, so deep that you might reach the big-bang-moment of Free Software. Be prepared for an inspiring and challenging journey and bring some friends (or any randomly allocated companionship) to pass it together. You know, sharing is caring!

There is no fixed schedule for this session. To participate in the ultimate Free Software challenge, simply make sure to be four to seven people and come between 14:00 and 18:00 or 20:00 to midnight to the FSFE assembly. Bring good mood, ask and you are welcome.

The Free Software challenge is kids-friendly and open for everyone from 8 years or more. No violence and no animals harmed!

Free Software Song sing-along at the FSFE Assembly

"Join us now and ..." sing together the Free Software song!

Everyday at the Village of the Free Software Foundation Europe we invite you to sing together the Free Software song; We have the lyrics and a conductor. Simply come, bring your hacker buddies and your voice and maybe an instrument and we form an ad-hoc choir and sing out loud our love for Free Software!

Sing-along sessions will be at:

  • Day 1, Wednesday 27, at 22:00
  • Day 2, Thursday 28, at 17:30
  • Day 3, Friday 29, at 13:00

Join us now - a choir to perform the Free Software song

We are gathering to rehearse and perform the Free Software song. On day 3 of 34C3, at 2 pm, we will have a 2h-workshop to let the choir and conductor Benjamin Wand practice the sing-along. In the evening of day 3, most probably at 8 pm the choir is invited to perform the Free Software song publicly on the stage of the Rights&Freedoms-Cluster in Saal 3. Crowdsinging the Free Software song!

FSFE's MISSION

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.

Free Software Foundation Europe:

  • 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
