Introducing new FoWL groups!
« on: May 14, 2012, 23:23:57 PM »
Thought it would be good to have a central place where we can all introduce ourselves!

I'm sending warm hello's from UKFoWL- a fledgling determined to get some momentum going for wikileaks support in the UK. I've been a supporter and follower of the WL organisation for many years, am particularly interested in the theory behind the movement and hopeful of it's capacity to make transformative change.

UKFoWL have been on twitter for about a week (@UKFoWL) and have been on facebook for a few days.

This is quite a learning curve for me and I'm keen to stress that it while it takes some time and commitment, any of us can get a supporter group going- if you're finding yourself waiting for someone to organise a group take a deep breath and start one yourself!!!!

In support

Introductions
« Reply #1 on: May 22, 2012, 05:45:41 AM »
Welcome to the Frankfurt Friends of WikiLeaks (FFMFoWL) Forum

Frankfurt Friend's of WikiLeaks (@FFMFoWL) began with a simple tweet on 11th March 2012, 'This twitter account anticipates the formation of Frankfurt Friends of Wikileaks.'

Australian Friends of Wikileaks (@AuSFoWL) had announced that a, 'World-wide snap action against extradition of Julian #Assange will occur the day after the U.K. appeal ruling is returned.' and since then, #FoWL have sprung up worldwide.

So, what is FoWL?

Friends of WikiLeaks is a network of people from across the globe who defend WikiLeaks.

And who are FFMFoWL?

FFMFoWL is a network of people in and around Frankfurt who share the same goal. We are a small but growing group of individuals who work together (and with other FoWL groups) to do what we can to promote WikiLeaks and individuals and organisations aligned with the mission of WikiLeaks.

You can find out more about FFMFoWL by visiting:

http://ffmfowl.wordpress.com

following @FFMFoWL on Twitter:

http://twitter.com/#!/FFMFoWL

and Facebook:

http://facebook.com/ffmfowl

emailing:

[email protected]

and of course, joining:

http://wlfriends.org

But what does FFMFoWL do?

We provide information about WikiLeaks in English and German that is easy to access. We try to answer questions about WikiLeaks and refer people to authoritative resources. We organise, print and distribute posters, flyers, fact sheets and stickers and make everything we have available for others to access, produce and distribute autonomously.

The most important thing we do is try to provide everyone who considers themselves a 'Friend of WikiLeaks' with an opportunity to help in whatever way they can. Whether by distributing information, writing, researching or translating, networking, doing graphics, sharing ideas, making suggestions or simply raising WikiLeaks in conversation.

Ok, what is the FFMFoWL Forum for?

This forum is a place to ask questions, offer opinions, suggestions and support, get involved and simply enjoy the conversation. That's what FoWL are for.

Friends of WikiLeaks is powered by human initiative!

Great post Teclo! That is pretty much how AdelaideFoWL was started as well! I can't encourage people enough to do this, it might be outside of your comfort zone but feel free to give it a shot! I would love to see more FoWL groups across the globe :)

Hvala, milicak

Hvala.

PS To bi trebalo odraditi sutra,između 11 i 14.
