  7. <h1>Berlin sends a message for "I love Free Software" day</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">In celebration of the "I love Free Software" day on
  9. February 14, the Berlin Reichtag has been illuminated with the message
  10. "Give Free Software A Chance" last weekend. On numerous buildings and
  11. symbolic places in Berlin other messages have been projected. "Build
  12. Free Software - Not Walls" could have been read on the Berlin Wall, and
  13. the Federal Ministry of Finances has been decorated by the slogan
  14. "Public Money, Public Code". Thereby, activists draw attention to the
  15. importance of larger appreciation of Free Software.</p>
  16. <p>FSFE representatives also delivered an open letter together with a
  17. rose to all members of German parliament in which they demand a higher
  18. political support of Free Software and the a higher recognition of
  19. voluntary Free Software development.</p>
  20. <blockquote><p>Max Mehl, program manager of FSFE, comments: "Free
  21. Software enables everyone to use, study, share, and improve programs
  22. for any purpose. These rights help support other fundamental rights
  23. like freedom of speech, freedom of press and privacy. Therefore, we ask
  24. politics and administration to put publicly financed software under a
  25. free license. Software funded by public money should be a common good
  26. and available to all people so that the whole society can benefit from
  27. it."</p></blockquote>
  28. <p>The "I love Free Software" day is being celebrated on every
  29. Valentine's Day and is dedicated to the countless voluntary
  30. contributors of Free Software.</p>
