Protest against the kidnapping of the internet
This Sunday, the bad weather will show how bad is the copyright reform in the EU. If you oppose how only interests of the capital (music, audio-visual and publishing industry on one side and the interests of internet giants on the other) were listened to in this process and if you demand that also the interests of the individuals – citizens and the interests of the public institutions (educational, research, libraries, archives, etc.) are considered, then take your umbrellas and come to Prešernov trg.
Internet is not only a big market for different content and services but was and should stay a place for free communication and the exchange of information as well as ideas!
