Die FSFE unterstützt den Offenen Brief gegen die Vorratsdatenspeicherung

Am 20. April haben sich insgesamt 48 Organisationen in einem Offenen Brief an Bundesjustizministerin Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger gegen eine Wiederaufnahme der Vorratsdatenspeicherung ausgesprochen.

My first booth…

The first time I booth-volunteered for FSFE was at this year’s CeBit. Standing around and talking to people about 9 hours a day from Friday to Sunday was demanding on the one hand and really exciting on the other hand. And I’ve met so many interesting new people…

At this year’s OpenRheinRuhr on 7. and […]
