  7. <h1>FSFE for Freedom not Fear</h1>
  8. <p>The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) supports Free Software so that
  9. every citizen can play an independent, active and responsible part in our
  10. information society. However, censorship of content, violations of the
  11. principle of 'Net Neutrality' and increasing online surveillance do not fit
  12. with these goals. FSFE is therefore appealing for participation in the
  13. world-wide day of action <a
  14. href=",en/">"Freedom
  15. Not Fear"</a>, which takes place this Saturday, the 11th October.</p>
  16. <p>"Free Software grants us the right to use such software for any purpose, to
  17. study it, to adapt it to our needs and to release improved versions to the
  18. public. However, if our civil rights are more and more curtailed by
  19. questionable legislation, we may end up with the absurd situation that we
  20. cannot make use of these four freedoms without breaking the law", warns
  21. Matthias Kirschner, German Deputy Coordinator for FSFE.</p>
  22. <p>In Germany, the main demonstration for "Freedom Not Fear" day starts at
  23. 14:00 at Alexanderplatz in Berlin, Germany. The event is organised by AK
  24. Vorrat (<a href="">German Working Group
  25. on Data Retention</a>) and is being supported by over one hundred organisations
  26. in Germany alone. Demonstrations are also taking place in 21 other countries
  27. around the world, such as in the cities of Paris, Stockholm, London, Sofia and
  28. Luxembourg, among many others. Artistic events related to the day of action
  29. will take place in Rome and Zürich, and discussion events are planned for
  30. Washington, D.C. In the Netherlands, events are taking place under the banner
  31. of <a href="">"Volksopstand 2008"</a> (Peoples'
  32. Revolt 2008). In The Hague, a demonstration is planned in the square front of
  33. the second chamber of the Dutch Parliament, and afterwards various related
  34. activities such as a 'privacy market' and discussion workshops will take
  35. place.</p>
  36. <p>More information on events planned worldwide can be found on the <a
  37. href="">"Freedom
  38. Not Fear" web site</a>.</p>
