  7. <h1>172 public institutions removed non-free advertisement</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">Only one month after the letters for the PDFreaders campaign of FSFE
  9. were sent, 172 public institutions have removed advertisements for proprietary
  10. PDF readers from their websites. Particularly outstanding were the responses
  11. from <a href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/buglist.html#HR">Croatia</a>, <a href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/buglist.html#RU">Russia</a> and <a href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/buglist.html#SI">Slovenia</a>. In Croatia almost all reported institutions deleted the advertisement. Half of those contacted in Russia and Slovenia fulfilled FSFE's
  12. request.</p>
  13. <p>"Several institutions replied stating that they agree with <a
  14. href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/letter.html">our concerns</a>, and that they will
  15. modify their websites", said campaign manager Matthias Kirschner. Amongst those
  16. are a number of ministries, parliaments, law enforcement agencies, and the
  17. Belgian Prime Minister's chancellery.</p>
  18. <p>Campaigns like this are made possible by a <a
  19. href="http://www.fsfe.org/contribute/index.en.html">community of
  20. volunteers</a>, and <a
  21. href="http://www.fsfe.org/donate/donate.en.html">financial supporters</a>.
  22. FSFE is following-up with the <a href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/buglist.html">
  23. remaining organisations</a> in order to get the remaining advertisements
  24. removed.</p>
