On the 4th of March 2013, EDRi also celebrated the 10th anniversary at
the European Parliament in Brussels. To mark the occasion, EDRi held a
meeting with European Commission Vice-President, Viviane Reding.

“As EU Commissioner in charge of the Information Society and now as EU
Commissioner for Justice, I have worked together with the European
Digital Rights organisation for many years,” said Ms. Reding. “Thanks to
our joint efforts we have made sure that the internet could not be
blocked and that data protection standards remain high in Europe. Today
we are celebrating EDRi’s 10th anniversary. Congratulations for 10 years
of great work! I look forward to continuing our joint efforts for strong
data protection rules in Europe. EDRi’s continuous support is crucial to
make sure that the fundamental right to data protection is properly
protected in our European Union.”

At the EDRi General Assembly of 2-3 March 2013 in Bruxelles, Belgium,
EDRi welcomed 3 new members: Alternative Informatics Association from
Turkey, Modern Poland Foundation and Initiative für Netzfreiheit (IfNF)
from Austria.

Now, 35 privacy and civil rights organisations have EDRi membership.
They are based or have offices in 21 different countries in Europe.
