I would like to hear about local/national organizations that work for privacy, software freedom, digital rights, and so on.
In Sweden I recently learned that there is one called “Föreningen för Digitala Fri- och Rättigheter” (DFRI) https://www.dfri.se/ that describes itself as follows:
DFRI is a Swedish non-profit and non-partisan organisation that promotes digital rights. Our goal is a society with as little surveillance, tracking and wiretapping as possible. We believe in freedom of speech, transparency and freedom of information, personal integrity and the individuals’ rights to control the use of their personal information and digital footprints. We oppose all forms of limitations of these values.
On their mailing list there is some discussion about a free alternative to the “BankID” e-identification system in Sweden, here: https://lists.dfri.se/listan/
I think DFRI seems really good, although so far it is fairly small. It would be great if more people knew about it. If you are in Sweden and care about these issues, become a member!
Outside Sweden, which local or national organizations are there? Are there some particularly successful ones that others could learn from and be inspired by?
