Like many doomsayers venture to say, it seems that they were going to collect 20 geeks, and an old lady what reseñaba minutes before the event: "It's a shame that youth are not out to defend their rights." He was right in part, but the Internet is not exclusive chavalería is a treasure for all citizens. I would rather say it's a shame that society does not come out to defend their basic rights that today, in case anyone was not aware, have the Network as battlefield. We're playing the future model of society and the Spanish were sleeping.
But the fact is that in front of the Ministry of "Culture" and Lt. Ruiz witness a May 2 defended their freedom against the invader, people finally dared to go outside. There were so few at first as they would have liked and the edge of the 12 hours King's Square was filled, of very varied indeed, 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 of Internet freedom ahead of the Greens). That was when Victor Domingo, president of the AI , gave the word to people so authorized as Miguel Perez Subías ( AUI ), Carlos Sánchez Almeida (attorney specializing in civil matters on the Internet) or the same Enrique Dans (guru and most influential blogger country). Participants also Javier Sanz ( ADSLZONE ), guitarist Luis Cobo "Manglis" (member of the SGAE), journalist Enrique de Diego (which inflamed the minds of all) and the representative of the CD and DVD shops whose harrowing testimony left us to clear a class of bugs that we face.
But hey, it's better that you see yourselves some of the testimony that someone with very good sense has put online:
The ceremony ended as you see reading manifesto which was convened by the event and the speakers to the microphone on the dais while Luis Cobo "Manglis" improvised (in case you were asking copyrights) a piece that rang me a fucking anthem to freedom and the struggle that we are a few without the rest of society realizes it 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, which are very powerful enemies, there are many fronts but that many of us who are fighting 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 both knowledge and freedom can be available to all mankind. Up to us shouting as did Lt. Ruiz: Go for it!
