Manchester Fellowship Group
About the group
We are an active group Free Software advocates working to promote Free Software at a local and national level. Working as members of the Free Software Foundation Europe, we draw attention to the social and political aspects of Free Software, share news and ideas, and plan future events and campaigns.
We meet on the last Thursday of each month at 19.00 at MadLab hackerspace in Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Stamp out the ads: Free-Software PDF reader sprint
Publicly funded institutions often advertise one specific PDF-reader on their websites: this is not acceptable. Armed with cake and pizza, we will find and contact public institutions advertising non-free brands of PDF readers and ask them to replace the advert with a company neutral, free and open standards alternative.
