In spite of the freezing weather, hundreds of people have been meeting throughout the Czech Republic to protest against the controversial ACTA agreement that poses a serious threat to the freedom of the Internet.
|DON'T TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM sign|
Brno, Freedom Square, February 11, 2012
Taking advantage of the large gathering of people, a couple of individuals including the gardenless gardener have organized a collection of warm clothes, blankets and sleeping bags for the homeless people in Brno. A huge pile of things was distributed right after the protest in a park where the civic initiative called Food not Bombs regularly gives warm food to the needy.
When local authorities fail to act, a lot can be done with little resources by common citizens. The solidarity of people felt as warm to us as hopefully do the collected items to their new owners.
