<h1>Congratulations to the FSF on its thirty-fifth anniversary</h1>
The FSFE's sister organisation, the FSF, celebrates its thirty-fifth
anniversary this week. Thirty-five years of working for software
freedom and inspiring many people and organisations to take a stand
for user freedoms deserve big congratulations. Watch and read the

35 years ago the Free Software Foundation was founded to work for
users' software freedom to use, study, share, and improve software.
In hindsight this seems to be an obvious step; in the 1980ies it was
Over the years more and more people, organisations, companies, and public
administrations learnt why Free Software is
important for a free society.
Meanwhile there are many different people and organisations out
there contributing to software freedom every day.
Together we can ensure that all humans can understand how software
works, use the software for any purpose without discrimination, share
it with others, and adapt it to their own specific needs. Together
we can ensure the continued growth and success of the Free Software
movement, which the FSF started.
Thank you to the FSF, for preparing the ground for the Free Software
movement, and for inspiring many organisations and people out there,
including the FSFE and myself, to work for users' software freedom in
the next decades to come.
Thank you and happy anniversary!
There will be an <a href="">online
celebration</a> via live stream and IRC on 9 October, also featuring
guest speakers from the FSFE.
