“In order to have Freedom, there has to have a homework. I think it is our duty as citizens to take precautions to preserve the Internet as we know it, to preserve our liberties"

Jérémie Zimmermann - french, born in 1978 - is vice-president of April, a french non-gov organization that pioneered the defense of Free Software. The ngo, composed by individuals, companies and associations from various origins, has become an important part in the democratization of open standards, working to increase awareness of the dangers posed by the private appropriation of knowledge and information.

Zimmermann also is a speaker and cofounder of the Paris Headquarter of La Quadrature du Net, a group of the civil society focused in defending the fundamental liberties of the Internet, by means of disclosure of legal projects which may threat civil liberty, economic development in the digital age.

La Quadrature du Net advocates specifically the adaptation of the french and european legislation to the principles that founded the Internet, such as the free flow of knowledge. The association engages also in debates of public policies such as freedom of expression, copyright, media regulation and online privacy. By disclosing information and tools, it hopes to stimulate citizen participation in public debates about rights and freedoms in the digital age.

A good example of the group's acting is “Political Memory”, a tool designed to help europeans to monitor the members of the european parliament and track their voting registry about questions related to the online fundamental freedoms.

It is our pleasure to receive you, Jérémie!

Welcome to #FISL15!
