Invitation to the 2nd Swiss FOSS compatible lobbyists meeting in Berne
On November 5th, 18:00, a meeting of lobbyists with interest in Free Software is going to take place in Berne, Switzerland. Anyone who is interested in political action is invited to join us.
- I would like to invite all people who have an interest in political activism for the benefits of Open Source and Free Software as well as aiming at a free and open information infrastructure (open standards, etc.) to the second Swiss FOSS compatible lobbyist meeting in Berne, in the conference room in the railway station. The meeting will take place on Monday, November 5th, 2007 18:00 (that is 6pm) in the conference rooms inside the railway station of Bern, Switzerland. The place is easily reached by taking the train to Berne and leaving at the central station. If you are planning to go there by car, there is a parking lot (surveilled) right above the railway station (Universität Langgasse). If you have comments or don't know how to find this place, call me under
