#Bruxelles : un monde de #lobbying

lobbyistes : combien sont ils ?


Officiellement, à Bruxelles, on compte quasiment 25.000 lobbyistes dont
. +/- 12.000 organisations
. 6.000 syndicats et groupements professionnels
. 3.000 ONG
. 1.000 cabinets de consultants

lobbyistes : leur puissance


le nerf de la guerre du lobbying est l’argent

On connaît cependant les sommes investies dans le lobbying pour les quelques #multinationales emblématiques
* #Google : 6 millions €
#Amazon : 1,7 millions €
#Facebook : 3.5 millions €
#Apple : 1 millions €
#Microsoft : 5 millions €Ainsi, des sommes colossales sont dépensées par les lobbyistes pour influencer les décisions, les lois, …

lobbyistes : leurs actions


Personne ne connaît exactement leur travail …
Cependant, on peut se rendre compte de leur influence à travers quelques exemples de décisions prises récemment

la taxe européenne sur les #GAFAM non adoptée
l’UE suspens le projet de taxe européenne sur les GAFA

l’utilisation du #glyphosate prolongée
* L’Europe a récemment prolongé l'utilisation du #glyphosate de 5 ans
L'UE vote le renouvellement du glyphosate pour cinq ans un «fond» pour l’industrie européenne de la #défense
* En 2016, la #CommissionEuropéenne propose la création d’un fond de 40 milliards € alimenté par le budget de l’ UE et les États membres pour la recherche et le développement d’armes et d’équipements militaires

#lobbying : évolutions des pratiques


Depuis 2011,
Bruxelles a mis en place un "registre de la transparence"
Les lobbyistes souhaitant rencontrer un membre de la commission doivent s'inscrire

Mais ici aussi, l’imagination des lobbyistes est sans limite
les règles de ce registre sont bien souvent contournées
EU : stop lobby register abuses

en outre,
il n’existe aucun registre de la transparence pour les députés ou les gouvernements
qui eux aussi participent à l’élaboration des lois ... 😉

Demand EU transparency and ethics rules now

Conclusion


Les lobbiyistes continuent d’influencer très largement les lois et directives élaborées à Bruxelles

We all wonder how large the open and free social media "federation" --- aka the Fediverse -- really is. This post gives you an indication of places where there seems no detectable presence of servers running fediverse social media protocols.

These snapshots are a graphical representation of countries with servers (or their proxies) that my nodes has interacted with in some form. My node is an open node (with a relatively small number of users by Friendica standards), but has been running for several years.

The lightest colour represents counties without any web requests to my server last month.

Permanent climate change is normal. Global data about the past is falsified by the specific US national agency. National data do not show general warming. There is a constant change. But there is no verifiable data confirming constant global warming at the global level.
In addition, even the Floods, the disappearance and appearance of islands are normal. Try to learn information about Doggerland, friezes, dr. Velikovsky models.

Two years ago, the East Sea (Baltic Sea) retreated from the coast near the city of Kaliningrad, the capital of Prussia. Russian residents were surprised by what they saw:

It turns out that recently there was a forest. Shabby flat stumps is all that's left (does this look like a steal saw job?)

According to local press, municipal authorities wanted to destroy the stumps, so that it do not interfere with the swimmers.

Два года назад Балтийское море отступило от берега близ Кёнигсберга, столицы Пруссии. Российские жителе были удивлены увиденным:

Похоже, не так давно здесь был лес. От которого остались лишь ровные пни (не похоже ли это на работу стальной пилы?)

Согласно сообщению местной прессы, местные власти изъявили желание уничтожить старые пни, чтобы они не мешали купающимся.

(i recommend that you familiarize yourself with the comments to this record, a resident of this city reported that just a few months ago another forest's remnants was raised)

But there is no investment by the US national agency in re-translation of such news. This information does not fit into the main PR climate model.

Diaspora* Public Stream ✊️



Federation in diaspora* isn't ideal. We're all on our different pods, but these individual pods make a lot of difference over the diaspora* content that is available to us. For example: some of the things that I can see on my pod might not necessarily be visible to you depending on what pod you are on.
Let's compare the stream on some pods from my #cuckpod list:

https://librenet.gr/public

https://pod.geraspora.de/public

https://diaspora.com.ar/public

https://diaspora.town/public
Wow, check out the variation in those. Eh? Now that you see how the URL code works to test for public stream, you can go ahead and check the rest of your pods. ;)
You know...
It is my personal policy to not publicly list those especially good, freedom loving pods... not because I don't support them, but because this is a #war.

I know that if I were to start listing non-cucked pods, the #antifa cabal (censorship enthusiasts) would target them as a hate list. Our enlightened podmin don't need to deal with that hassle, not to mention the risks they face from repressive (The State) government agencies. Big gov, (especially in #Europe with the #EU) are leaning hard on the internet. They desperately want to reestablish that monopoly over the new-media and #narrative. Euro-normies quietly went along with infringements over #rights of #FreeSpeech... yet only now that the cuckery has gone to far, they're starting to freak out about stuff like #Article13. - #Lol. Too late junior...

European Copyright Reform: Article 13 puts alternative social networks at risk


If you live in the European Union, you have probably heard about the planned European Copyright Reform, and you are probably aware of its controversial Article 13.

The so-called Proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market intends to introduce new regulations around copyright. Article 13 would add new liability rules for online content-sharing service providers. While previously, providers could act on content that infringed copyright upon receiving a notice, the proposed regulations would render providers accountable for content as soon as it has been uploaded.

Effectively, this would put providers into a position where they have to implement strict upload filters to prevent users from uploading content that may infringe on someone else's copyright. This is dangerous, and it puts free speech, the diversity of opinions, and the internet as a whole at risk.

Article 13 previously contained rules to exclude platforms younger than three years, generating revenue of less than €10 million or with fewer than 5 million active users. Last week, however, a new draft was published, and the proposal now only excludes platforms matching all three of those conditions.

This is shocking. If Article 13 became a reality, everyone who operates a platform for users to publish content for more than three years would be 100% liable for everything happening on that platform, including content the operators are not even aware of. This makes operating an alternative social network effectively impossible.

For more details about the planned copyright reform, and information on how you can help, please check out saveyourinternet.eu. This does not concern just diaspora* or your other favorite alternative social network. This concerns everyone. This is about health of the internet. Please #SaveYourInternet and fight against the #CensorshipMachine.

For reference, you will find below an open letter from diappora* core team member Dennis Schubert, sent to those members of the European Parliament who currently support Article 13.
Dear Member of the European Parliament

The proposed Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market has been the topic of discussions for many months now. In spite of many debates on this matter, not much progress has been made to address concerns of many respected experts, including many NGOs and even the United Nations' Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression, David Kaye[1]. According to my information, you are in the group of members of the European Parliament currently in favour of supporting this proposal, which is why I am reaching out to you to request you to reconsider the proposal, and especially consider the impact Article 13 will have on the Internet.

I am writing to you as a citizen of the European Union, but I am also reaching out to represent the many users and engineers behind alternative social networks. I am the project lead of diaspora*[2], an alternative, distributed social network based on free and open-source software. Together with similar projects such as Mastodon and Friendica, the world of alternative social media reaches over 2.5 million users on more than 4000 servers, including citizens who are part of your constituency.

Until now, the European Union has been seen as the epicentre of many efforts to build and maintain alternatives to large networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Many of these projects, their developers, and users are citizens of the European Union, and our projects enjoy great popularity among people as they are seen as privacy-friendly, local alternatives to the large systems built by American corporations. On many occasions in the past, European Union legislation has supported these projects and their principles, for instance with the recently implemented General Data Protection Regulation [4]to ensure high levels of data privacy for EU citizens.

Unfortunately, the planned copyright reform, and especially Article 13, will have an effect exactly opposite to supporting such projects and efforts.

The upload filters both explicitly described in and implied by the text on which you will be voting would force all online platforms to rely on technologies known to be error-prone, intrusive and legally questionable[5]. The proposal intends to hold providers of online platforms accountable for all content uploaded by users as soon as they have been published, contrary to the "notice and takedown" procedure currently in place, which allows providers to remove offending content upon receiving notice without the fear of legal repercussions.

For large platforms like Twitter and YouTube, this change would result in the implementation of stricter upload filters. Due to the technical natures of such systems and the strict liability regulations, those systems will be designed to block "too much", because blocking "too little" would put the provider at risk. Such over-cautious filters are a danger for users' freedom of speech, the diversity of opinions and creativity on the entire Internet, and would limit EU citizens' rights substantially.

Implementing Article 13 in its current form would be the end for smaller platforms and projects, as well as small and medium-sized businesses working on these or similar projects. Although in a previous revision of the proposal, platforms younger than three years, with revenue of less than €10 million, or with fewer than 5 million monthly active users would be excluded, a recent revision of the proposal now only excludes projects that meet all three of these conditions. For projects like diaspora*, which is significantly older than three years, this decision would result in all operators being responsible for every action their users do.

Non-profit projects like diaspora* are developed and maintained by people working voluntarily. Operators of servers running these software projects run those because they deem privacy important and want to provide an alternative to the large networks. They do not earn any money by doing this. The development, embedding and maintenance of infrastructure needed to filter copyright violations automatically requires a lot of resources, and implementing such solutions would thus simply be impossible.

If Article 13 became a reality, these projects and companies would not be able to comply with the new laws, so they could either cease to provide their services to European citizens and move their operations to a country outside the EU or stop their activities altogether. For Europe, especially as a community for strong privacy principles and independent, alternative solutions, this would be a huge step backwards and would make the established large networks, which quite regularly violate European principles, even more powerful.

With this, I am asking you to reject Article 13 of the Copyright Directive and to support all citizens who raise their voice for a free, open and diverse Internet.

Please do not use your vote to destroy the Internet.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Dennis Schubert
