Shortly after the Pentecost we decided that our first info-party should take place on the 6th of October. Back then, no one suspected that this day would result in a groundbreaking Court ruling for our data sovereignty.
On the 6th of October 2015 the European Court of Justice overturned the data-agreement “Safe Harbor” between the United States and Europe declaring the data servers in the USA an unsafe harbor for European users.
Even the “heute journal” stopped by the Nochtspeicher in St. Pauli in order to get an insight on our evaluation of the recent supreme judicial decision.
So motivated accordingly, we presented our 70 guests the highlights of our campaign. However, above all, the poetry slams of Jörg Schwedler and Monika Mertens powerfully depicting their lives with and in the internet were the ones to wow the audience.
Those of you who couldn’t be present that evening, and relied on our live stream, which failed miserably, here as a consolation a takeout from Monika Mertens’ poetry slam: “Not so safe – the question of faith”.
The audience went wild. Enjoy!
