Final results for #pdfreaders’ bug hunt

FSFE’s campaign for the removal of advertising for non free software on public websites is taking a new turn today. After having gathered more than 2000 institutions all across Europe and even outside (we’ve reached Angola, Brasil, the United States, Australia…).You will find underneath more detailed information on what we have gathered.

Now the time has come to contact the institutions and explain them why this practice is wrong. If you want to get involved also in this part of the campaign, we can need you at several levels :

- help us to translate the letter to be sent to the institutions and the campaign page

- speak around you about the campaign and get people to sign our petition, to show the public institutions how many people all around Europe feel concerned with this issue

- if you are ready to put more energy into the campaign, take a look at the guideline for contributors

Enough words said, let’s have a look at the numbers:
