    Minister of culture invests in an open France

    Elliot Harmon, November 8th, 2013
    French Minister for Culture and Communication Aurlie Filippetti announcing the partnership between the ministry and Open Knowledge Foundation France
    Aurélie Filippetti / Open Knowledge Foundation / CC BY
    French minister of culture and communications Aurélie Filippetti launched a set of initiatives yesterday designed to promote a more creative, more open France. The impressive announcement covers a lot of measures, including an open data policy for cultural data, the launch of a new workspace designed to stimulate cultural innovation, and much more. But of particular interest to us are the new partnerships Filipetti announced with the Open Knowledge Foundation and Creative Commons France.The ministry of culture and communication will work with CC France to educate students, cultural creators, and society in general on understanding and using Creative Commons licenses. According to the announcement, “These tools align with intellectual property law and fit perfectly within the minister’s policy of digital inclusion as a part of her great national project for arts and cultural education.”*Meanwhile, the ministry will also work with the Open Knowledge Foundation France to map the French public domain, making it easier for anyone to discern whether a work is in the public domain or not. This partnership is the next step in OKFN’s Public Domain Calculators project, and it’s great news for anyone who cares about a vibrant, living public domain.We applaud Minister Fillipetti and congratulate both CC France and OKFN France on this exciting partnership.*Rough translation from the French announcement.

    Privacy And Transparency Are Not Mutually Exclusive, But Complementary In A Healthy Society

    @RickFalkvinge

    [...] On the surface, transparency stands at odds with privacy. If you have transparency of government, how can you have privacy for the people at the same time? You can. The keyword to note is “transparency of government“. The successful societies of our time have all had transparent governments, while at the same time, they have secured civil liberties for the individual citizens. [...]

    PRESS RELEASE
    AUGUST 31, 2013

    Military Strikes in Syria Cannot Bring Justice

    Contact: Sharon Singh, ssingh@aiusa.org, 202-675-8579, @spksingh(Washington, D.C.) Frank Jannuzi, Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) deputy executive director, issued the following statement as President Barack Obama announced his intention to seek congressional approval for military strikes on Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons:"Amnesty International renews our call for the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to refer the situation to the International Criminal Court (ICC), to impose an arms embargo on the Syrian government, and to deploy international monitors to investigate and report on human rights abuses."We deplore the prolonged failure of the UNSC to hold accountable those who have violated international human rights and humanitarian law in the Syrian conflict. A climate of impunity will only embolden those on all sides who have shown disregard for international norms of justice that evolved from the darkest periods of human history.“Long term, the best way for the United States to signal its abhorrence for war crimes and crimes against humanity and to promote justice in Syria, would be to reaffirm its support for the Rome Statute establishing the International Criminal Court."Tragically, the conflict in Syria shows no signs of abating. The international community should prepare for a prolonged humanitarian emergency. It needs to increase support to neighboring countries where refugees are fleeing; offer resettlement and humanitarian admission programs and robustly fund the United Nations' Syria Regional Response Plans.”

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    NO TO WAR IN SYRIA

    The American people do not want the United States to go to war in Syria. There are no American interests being threatened in Syria. Syria has not attacked the United States, nor American citizens, nor has Syria attacked United States armed forces personnel. There has been no Congressional declaration of war. There has been no United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force in Syria. To go to war in Syria at this time would be illegal and unconstitutional. To go to war in Syria at this time would be criminal under international law, the crime of aggression. The President of the United States is not authorized under law to declare war on his own. If the President will decide to go to war without a declaration of war from Congress, that would be an impeachable offense.

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

    Stop SOPA 2013

    In 2012 the Online Privacy Act was brought fourth to congress to be passed which would have negatively affected everyone on the internet as a whole. The people fought back and it never happened. Several times now since then it was revised under a different title with changes and tweaks to the wording to again try to get it to pass without the general public knowing about it. Each time it was found out, and then repealed.Here we are in 2013 and again dealing with a portion of SOPA, this time the streaming of copywritten works is at the forefront of this particular law to be. If a particular stream contains any copywritten material of any sort the uploader and creator of said content can be found guilty and automatically placed in prison for years on felony charges.Let's end this for good

  • France, Are You Dumb? - Falkvinge on Infopolicy

    http://falkvinge.net/2013/08/21/france-are-you-dumb/

    This is something of the dumbest yet I’ve seen in terms of the war on privacy in the name of so called “anti-terror” laws. This is not just an irritation, but so ineffective it needs a new word for just its sheer level of ineffectiveness. And stupor.

    Statement from #EdwardSnowden in #Moscow

    Monday #July 1, 21:40 UTC

    One week ago I left #HongKong after it became clear that my #freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued #liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.
    On Thursday, President #Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic "wheeling and dealing" over my case. Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my #asylum petitions.
    This kind of #deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me.
    For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of #HumanRights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right. A right that belongs to everybody. The right to seek asylum.
    In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of #whistleblowers like me, #BradleyManning or #ThomasDrake. We are stateless, imprisoned, or powerless. No, the Obama administration is afraid of you. It is afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional #government it was promised — and it should be.
    I am unbowed in my convictions and impressed at the efforts taken by so many.
