FFII, http://www.ffii.org, People are planning to have some actions/events at
Bruxelles for this. There also will be a "Parlamentarischer Abend", some kind
of Informational event for german Potiticians of the Bundestag this
Wednesday. Holger Blasum, firstname.lastname@example.org, and Hartmut
Pilch, email@example.com, will be the right people to get in contact.
There are also some guys of ATTAC Wissensalmende, a ATTAC group working on
property rights, who will be in Brüssel too. Oliver Moldenhauer,
firstname.lastname@example.org, may give further Informations about planned events.
Sven Kromminga and me (Volunteers of FSF Europe in Germany) are in contact
with some people of the lower saxony greens and the lower saxony SPD (social
democratic party). We are planning a seminar on the social and political
aspects of Free Software for lower sxonian politicians of the green party
