On May 25th 2005 at 12 p.m., students from Belgian universities demonstrated against softwarepatents.
On April 27th 2005, students and teachers of all universities in Spain demonstrated against softwarepatents (http://lucha.proinnova.org/). Inspired by our Spanish collegues, we in Belgium held a similar demonstration on wednesday the 25th of May in Antwerp, Brussels and Leuven. The event was supported by VVS (Vlaamse Vereniging van Studenten) and was a great succes: over one hundred students, teachers and assistants showed up in Leuven, about 20 in Brussels and about 30 in Antwerp. The demonstration also had a lot of press attention.
Pictures of the demonstration are to be found in our gallery. These pictures are freely available.
