    European open source guys, please sign the petition and keep this thread alive

    European open source guys, please invite yourselves and friends to sign the petition: http://www.p2pnet.net/story/10879. I don't think ppl outside EU have a right to request, but you may ask around.

    Read it, signed it. Good call ephemeros.

    As I was about to sign it I realised that the local government of Extremadura, Spain (yes, an EU member state) can't watch the streaming videos from the Coucil of the European Union because they use ... Linux (Debian to be precise).

    How about that?

    I'd sign it, but I am an ugly American, and that would be dishonest.

    No, I don't think it would. Why should the politics of the EU only be accessible to it's own citizens? Sure, it's for the citizens to have a say but this is about partaking in information from the EU. They themselves state that this information should be available to everyone, i.e. it is public information.

    If you agree and feel so inclined, you should sign it, regardless if you live in EU, USA or outer space.

    I signed it, and I am from America. This sort of thing affects us all.
