Freedom Not Fear (FNF) is an unconference that happens in Brussels where NGOs meet to talk about privacy and surveillance. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded people and build connections for our organizations.
Some of us have been there in the last years and we can say that it’s an excellent experience. Lot’s of nice people too!
From their website:
We are looking forward to join forces with NGOs from all over the world in order to build a strong alliance for the freedom of speech that is threatened by increasing surveillance.
In the last years, Freedom not Fear had been supported by a broad alliance including political parties, professional associations, trade unions and freedom activists.
We are a coalition of more than 150 organisations that share a common goal.
We want freedom of speech in a digitalized world and a free and uncensored internet to express ourselves.
We want privacy in the knowledge society, not surveillance.
We want to live in freedom, not in fear.
The registrations open on the 15th Sept (POSTPONED: see below)
The event will be on 8-11 Nov '19. Some of us will be registering for that. There is a possibility to get a travel and accommodation allowance.
