Backbone 409


June 14–15 2014, Calafou, Barcelona

A gathering of projects actively building infrastructures for a free Internet from an anti-capitalist point of view: autonomous servers, open networks, online services, platforms, open hardware, free software, etc.

The recent revelations about mass surveillance by states and corporations made the idea of a free Internet more topical than ever before, and at the same time generated popular interest in the topic. There are people who are looking at us to provide solutions and many others who just got interested about the topic and look for ways to get involved.

We are organizing a two-day event mixing round table discussions with practical workshops on security, outreach, knowledge sharing, usability, sustainability, synergies between projects, legal issues, etc.

To challenge the language barrier which often excludes Spanish speaking people from Southern Europe and Latin America from the Anglo-Saxon discourse, and the other way around, we will provide simultaneous interpretation.

If you are interested in coming, please contact us so we can build a list of participants and structure the content accordingly.

In solidarity,
