I couldn't find any webpage dedicated to that event; isn't this party promoted
on the web?

Some people do produce stickers and T shirts promoting Debian.  I myself
currently don't have a any in stock, unfortunately.

We also have flyers explaining what Debian is about.  I myself don't have the
resources to print those for you; I however _might_ be able to supply you
soonish with .pdf files you can print yourself.  Anyway, sources for the Debian
flyer are available via
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/debian-flyers/debian-flyers.git .

BTW, it's really cool you're promoting Free Software in Algeria;  I had a quick
look at your website and it looks awesome :)

Lots of succes running your 8th GNU/Linux Install Party!

Take care, Bye,
