   ..:: freedom still in development... please stand by ::..

                       ..::   INTRO   ::..

This message is a call for YOUR participation into the 2005 
edition of the HackMeeting, taking place the 21st, 22nd and 
23rd of October in Menorca (Spain). We are looking forward 
to receive proposals for nodes of workshops, activities, 
debates, meetings, etc. in order to create a network of 
activities and encounters around hacktivism, cyberspace,
telecommunications and its technopolitical dimensions during 
a full (and free) weekend.

We've switched from the traditional call4papers to the 
call4nodes where participation is not restricted to just 
papers but to a wider range of media (workshops, conferences, 
round tables, expositions, posters, etc) that build-up the 
so-called nodes. As you already may know, the HM is actually 
a participative event where the breach between organizers and 
public melts into the necessity for collective self-managing
of the event. Thus we are looking forward to see you joining 

This year, the hackmeeting will be held along the 
constant struggle for the liberation of spaces and networks
for knowledge circulation. In the physical aspect, we won 
the sue for the illegal eviction of the CSOA Labo03 [1] (a
squatted and self-managed social center in Madrid); at the 
european parliament we also won the refusal of the software
patents law; at the cyberspace, our virtual meeting point, 
we are celebrating the constant increase of our community 
[2] and that of more robust, stable and, of course, free 
systems. There are still efforts trying to set up orwelian
control systems around us, such as the Data Retention Program 
[3] whose implementation, if approved at the EU parliament, 
would store about 4 years of Internet and telephone
(including mobile phones).

During our constant work for the creation of spaces for 
collective experimentation, knowledge difusion and skill
sharing, we often clash against bureaucratically compiled 
programs (designed to stop this kind of activities): for 
instance those materialized into police forces and estate 
agencies which execute inexistent judicial orders that have 
already obliterated the "L'Estella" squat from Mataró [4] 
--where the hackmeeting was going to take place this year-- 
now relocated at "La Fibra" squat [5], the squat "Llucalari" 
from Menorca was also taken over, later relocated in 
Biniancolla (Menorca) and currently under eviction threat.

Growing under the counter-culture movement, HackMeetings 
defend the right to experiment in freedom, to open up new 
spaces for colletive creation and to overcome our individual 
limitations by the reconstruction and self-management of
preexistent social codes and spaces.
