Why is software created using taxpayers' money not released as Free Software?
If it is public money, it should be public code as well.
Free Software has never been more necessary to journalists and activists throughout the world. FSFE helps shape a world where technology empowers us, instead of oppressing us.Amaelle's background photo by Gregory Fabre @grrr used with CC BY SA 4.0 license.

Corso Leopold is a bi-annual Street Festival on Munich's Leopoldstraße. Because we believe Free Software is an essential part of a Free and Open Society, FSFE Group Munich will be present at Corso Leopold with a booth. We are happy to see Munich's FLOSS community growing further and we feel honored to have our booth next to the booths of several like-minded organizations (digitalcourage e.V, Forum InformatikerInnen für Frieden und gesellschaftliche Verantwortung and Wikipedia e.V.)
We're looking forward to meet new people as well as old friends, to thought-provoking discussions and to nice conversations.
