As a professional programmer for over 20 years, I support this call to boycott the DebianConf in Israel, chosen in flagrant disregard of the 15 year old call by Palestinian civil society for BDS. In 2020, no one can claim ignorance of the genocidal policies of Israel towards the Palestinian people. You must also recognize that Israel plays a key role in repressing popular movements around the world, providing training and weapons/surveillance technology to dictators, security forces, and paramilitaries. It is therefore extremely important that as tech workers we say no to any and all collaboration with Israel. Cancel DebConf in Israel! This is an opportunity to take a stand with the people of the world. Four US Presidential candidates have refused to go to the AIPAC conference, surely you can follow their lead! Now is the time.

Open, borderless, non-hierarchical, immutable, censorship-resistant - let's keep our crypto and free software projects free by respecting the basic demand for freedom, equality and justice for ALL 20M sons and daughters of Palestine, aka Israel.
Support #BDS, support our basic freedoms!

ser hacker , ir contra los estados y sus mierdas institucionales pero hacer una reunión en un lugar que violenta sistemáticamente los derechos humanos es una super contradicción...
