I have written here before, but I forgot to introduce me, sorry.
I am in the core-team of the German working group on data retention
("AK Vorrat"), organizing the national protest against data retention
and other legal "cruelties".
I am also member of german pirates (Berlin) and will now get more
involved into the pirate work.
You will find my contact data and a short introduction here:
http://cristof.remmert-fontes.de (actually in german, I am afraid,
but with links to my civil society engagements, podium discussions,
public talks and workshops)
I would like to participate as well and I highly recommend the
suggestion of Andrew: we need representants at the UN and at other
stakeholder's meetings, such as WIPO (I mentioned that before), IGF etc.
So, a representation at the UN (New York), in Brussels and Geneva
would be good goal to work for. I agree with Jan Huwald, that a
secretary is the correct form
Beside my engagement in the AK Vorrat, I actually work on founding a
representation in Berlin, the residence of our national gouvernment.
Unfortunately, we lack of money for renting an office (we are still
looking for additional 500 EUR/month - I will pay about 100 EUR by
myself and the german Pirate Party may pay a little bit, too).
Because I plan to enter the european parliament in two years, I will
also enforce my engagement at the international pirates. If I may... :-D
Also, I help organizing the international pirate congress in January
(and a national NGO-conference on civil rights and privacy early
February - I need (unpaid) volunteers! *g*).
So, what are the next steps:
- identifiying the stakeholders (working) groups, we have to participate
- identifying the pirates, who may participate
- looking for funding/sponsoring/grants to pay that work
- get in contact with other lobby groups, civil society movements etc.
-- in Brussels, I am in contact with the european EFF representative
(Erik Joseffson (we will hold a talk about data retention and the
european legislation at the 24c3 in December in Berlin)
-- there are also good contacts to the FFII and some not so close to
-- also, EDRi is a good hook
Well, but we could talk about all that on sunday, the 9th ;-)
