EDRI-gram saved!

By EDRi · January 19, 2006

The campaign for support for EDRI-gram has been very successful. After an urgency call for pledges in the last 2005 issue of EDRI-gram, kind donators have pledged a little over 2.000 euro in support. On top of that, the Open Society Institute (Soros) kindly offered a donation of 1.500 euro. Combined with the 4.000 euro scraped together by EDRI itself, EDRI is pleased to announce the survival of EDRI-gram in 2006. The new editor, Bogdan Manolea from EDRI-member APTI in Romania, has agreed to produce 24 editions in 2006.

However, European Digital Rights still needs your help in upholding digital rights in the EU. In order to be able to participate in important international meetings from the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, WIPO, OSCE and WSIS, EDRI needs a financial basis to reimburse a selected representative from the EDRI-members for (low budget) travel costs. Funding is also necessary in order to produce leaflets during emergency political campaigns. Last but not least, to guarantee continuity for EDRI-gram in 2007, EDRI hopes to find one or two sponsoring companies.
