In addition to its many volunteer contributors, La Quadrature is now operating with a five-member crew (and a trainee) structured around three types of activities: campaigning (Jerémie Zimmermann and Yoann Spicher), legal watch and analysis (Miriam Artino and Arthur Messaud) and development of citizen empowerment tools (Thomas Bouchet). Logistics and administrative support is provided by Marie Walrafen.
Since the epic citizen victory against ACTA in July 2012, and thanks to this structuring, La Quadrature de Net has been sustainably working, on both European and French levels, on the following dossiers:
- for a positive reform of copyright that acknowledges our cultural rights to share and remix;
- for Net neutrality, against censorship and the discriminated treatment of our communications;
- for the protection of our personal data, against surveillance and against the destruction of our privacy by Facebook, Google, etc. at the European level;
- against TAFTA / TIPP and CETA, new “ACTAs +” that continue to threaten our online freedoms under the disguise of ”trade agreements”.
Besides these daily actions and numerous contributions to the public debate, La Quadrature organises and takes part in many institutional and community events (such as workshops or a village at OHM20131Join us!) to help spread good practices in the digital space and help set up an infrastructure for debate and citizen empowerment.
These actions can only move forward with the support of thousands of individuals like you!
