This is Fred from April in France. I was happy to see you at the Techinc
hackerspace last month. You have a really nice place for hackers. I am
looking forwarg to going there again :)

I am contacting you because I am looking for Free Software activists in
Europe for an April campaign. Maybe you could give me useful contacts. I
have also contacted Jaromil.

In 2009, we launched the Free Software Pact initiative for the European

And We are going to launch a similar campaign for the 2014 European
elections. Maybe you may know some Free Software activists who could be
interesting in participating in the Netherlands.

Here is more information about the Free Software Pact.

The web site is http://www.freesoftwarepact.eu/ (not modified since

How it works basically :

- - There is a Free Software (that was first time written in 2007 for
  French legislatives elections) which is signed by candidates to the
  European elections :


  The Free Software Pact is a simple document with which candidates
  can inform the voting public that they favor the development and use
  of Free Software, and will protect it from possible threatening EU

  The Free Software Pact is also a tool for citizens who value Free
  Software to educate candidates about the importance of Free Software
  and why they should, if elected, protect the European Free Software

- - The campaign invites citizens to ask candidates to sign the Free
  Software Pact.

- - the list of candidate who signed the pact is published on the website
  for everyone to see. Voters can then check who signed the pact and
  who hasn't.

- - We set up also a tool named GPT (Grassroot Platform Technology)
  which is a web program that helps coordinating a grassroot volunteer
  campaign based on the act of contacting political candidates before
  an election.  Its aim is to act as a contact directory and to gather
  all information regarding the work of a decentralized volunteer
  campaign (who is in charge of which candidate or constituency,
  etc.).  GPT also helps maintaining a numbering of candidates
  supports. This tool was developped by April.

We launched similar campaigns for every national and local elections
in France since 2007.

In 2009, we launched the Free Software Pact initiave for the European
elections. We had around 100 signatories, 37 of whom got elected. For a
first time, that was quite interesting.
