FSFE Birthday party
FSFE had it’s 15th birthday party in c-base, which ensured the event to be future compatible. With other members of the movement I was declared a “FSFE local hero”, for which I’m very thankful to the FSFE.
With special thanks to Erik Albers and Cellini Bedi, who used their skills to organise a very positive, inspiring and memorable experience.
