Demonstration Brussels


On April 14, 2004, we organize a walking demonstration from Square de Meeus (near Place du Luxembourg) to the European Council building. Last year, we organized a similar demonstration in Brussels. It was a big success. About 400 persons came to Brussels. This year we try to mobilise even more supporters.

It is more then just a demonstration. If you want to find out more about software patents, this is the place to be. There is a conference in the afternoon. The demonstration is an ideal place to meet new people from Europe and friends you normally only see on the internet. At the end of the day, you can join the dinner.
