Like many doomsayers ventured to say, it seems that they were going to put together 20 geeks, and an elderly lady was reviewing the minutes before the event: "It's a shame that youth comes not 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 comes not defend their basic rights today, in case anyone was not aware, have Network as a battlefield. At stake is the future model of society and the Spaniards were asleep.
But the truth is that in front of the Ministry of "Culture" and Lt. 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 of course, great and small, young and old rebel, students and teachers, artists and retired journalists Daniel Rodríguez Herrera (Libertad Digital) and politicians like David Hammerstein (strong advocate of Internet freedom ahead of the Greens). That's when Victor Domingo, president of the AI , gave the floor to authority than Miguel Pérez Subías (people AUI ), Carlos Sánchez Almeida (specializing in civil affairs in Internet lawyer) or the same Enrique Dans (guru and blogger most influential country). Also participating Javier Sanz ( ADSLZONE ), guitarist Luis Cobo "Manglis" (partner SGAE), journalist Diego Enrique (which inflamed the minds of all) and the representative of the CD and DVD stores whose harrowing testimony left us to clear that kind of bugs we face.
But hey, it's better that you see yourselves some of the testimony that someone with very good sense has put online:
Act like you see ended with the reading of the manifesto by which the event was convened and the speakers to the microphone on the dais while Luis Cobo "Manglis" improvised (if they asked copyrights) a piece that sounded like 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've 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 of defending 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!
