‘We truly believe in the value & human rights of , which should be without borders.

That is exactly why, though not in Europe, we still strongly support the ideas, notions & campaigns of FSFE.’

– Franklin Weng, Software Liberty Association Taiwan

'Free Software is about empowerment.

When I was a student with little money, Linux enabled me to do interesting things with my cheap and old computer where the pre-installed software failed.

Since then, my whole education & many achievements would have been impossible had I not been able to experiment, learn, disassemble, reassemble, modify, tweak, and use the way I wanted.

This kind of needs a strong lobby: the FSFE'

– Thomas Kahle

'Writing good is one thing, but getting the word out, countering corporate lobbying, and working towards an environment where even gets a chance in public sector tenders is equally important.’

– Thorsten Behrens, Developer
