Manchester Fellowship Group

About the group

The Manchester Fellowship Group is no longer having meetings. They may resume in future; email the mailing list for details

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.

Coordinator: Anna Morris

Ex-Coordinator: Sam Tuke

Mailing list: manchester@lists.fsfe.org

All group meetings are listed on both uk.fsfe.org and fsfe.org. iCal and RSS feeds are available from those pages.

Information about other nearby community groups can be found on the community groups, and on the North West Digital Communities website.

Stamp out the ads: Free-Software PDF reader sprint

Date: 2011-08-13

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.
