Freedom not Fear 2021 is a Europeans’ activists online meeting and workshop taking place online Sunday, 21 November 2021.

This year’s focus will be “Platform Power” – How do a few massive platforms shape our current experience in the online space? And why is it so important to address this concentration of power now?

Algorithms deployed by big platforms like Facebook and current practices of the companies behind those platforms are harming individuals, groups and society as a whole.
The big commercial platforms try to maximise ‘user engagement’ – keeping people clicking, liking, and sharing at any price. Since this is their business model, these platforms will not take responsibility for the disruption they cause and they have no interest in regulating themselves, because their profit relies on it – regardless of the consequences.
