Like many doomsayers ventured to say, it seems that they were going to gather 20 geeks, and an old lady what reseñaba minutes before the event: "It's a shame that youth comes not defend their rights." He was partly right, but is that the Internet is not exclusive chavalería, is a treasure for all citizens. I would rather say it is a shame that society comes not defend their most basic rights that today, in case anyone had not heard, have Network as a battlefield. At stake is the future model of society and the Spaniards were sleeping.
But the fact is that before the Ministry of "Culture" and Lieutenant Ruiz witness a May 2 defended their freedom against the invading finally people were encouraged to go outside. We were not so few at first as they would have liked and the edge of the 12 hours the Plaza del Rey was full of very diverse people by the way, great and small, young and old rebel, students and teachers, artists and retired journalists Daniel Rodriguez Herrera (Libertad Digital) and politicians like David Hammerstein (strong advocate for internet freedom in front of the Greens). That was when Victor Domingo, president of AI , gave the floor to authority than Miguel Pérez Subías (people AUI ), Carlos Sánchez Almeida (specializing in civil matters in Internet lawyer) or the same Enrique Dans (guru and blogger most influential country). Also participated Javier Sanz ( ADSLZONE ), guitarist Luis Cobo "Manglis" (member of the SGAE), journalist Enrique de Diego (which inflamed the minds of all) and representative stores CD and DVD whose shocking testimony left us the clear to what kind of vermin we face.
But hey, it's better that you see yourselves some of the testimonials that someone with very good sense has posted on the web:
Act like you see finished reading the manifesto by which the event was convened and the speakers to the microphone on the dais while Luis Cobo "Manglis" improvised (in case they asked copyrights) a piece that sounded like me a fucking hymn to freedom and the struggle that we are few without the rest of society realizes or cares. I liked it so much that I uploaded to the web for all to enjoy:
We must be clear that we are literally in a war for our rights, the enemies are very powerful, there are many fronts but many of us are fighting them and we have a responsibility to future generations and to defend as Internet History supposed to defend the press and the French Revolution at a time. For the first time the knowledge and therefore freedom can be available to all mankind. Up to us shouting as he did Lieutenant Ruiz: Go for it!
