[liberationtech] Freedom not fear, talks at anti surveillance demo in Berlin

I'm writing to pass along some news from Germany - where national
elections will take place later this month.

Last Saturday, 10,000 (maybe 15,000) people took to the streets of
Berlin to demonstrate for "Freedom Not Fear". This marks the third (and
largest) anti surveillance demonstration the city has seen during the
past two months.

There were two talks in English, one by Jacob Appelbaum¹, another by
Parker Higgins² of EFF. Local activist Anne Roth³ spoke in German - her
talk (worth a read) is available in written English:

³ Anne's family has been under surveillance for at least two years,
  their apartment was raided by riot cops and her partner was arrested
  for months on weak (and - as quickly turned out - unfounded) domestic
  terror suspicions.
