After much discussion on the OHM mailinglist and social media storms, the
police backed of and decided not to have a village. Instead, like all the
previous conferences before, they will be undercover! Just like CCCamp,
EMFcamp and all the other hacker conferences. At least we can play spot the
fed again, hooray!

Further, I agree with micah, would we not participate in a discussion like
we're having on this list with policymakers that things needs to be
radically changed? We can let our voice heard for a change and explain the
police and other surveillance vendors that what they do is an awful thing
and explain they are not welcome at our party.

My 0,02.

With kind regards,
