Experience around FLOSS tools and social movements in Mexico

Jes Ciacci, Gibrán Montes (in spanish with interpretation)

We want to share experiencies around Mexican social movements migrating to free software and/or using other free tools. People of different social processes are increasingly adopting FLOSS in their daily activity to communicate and organize. Most of the motivation came from digital security awareness but some times it goes a little further (like be congruence with the defense of human rights). In the way of facilitating those processes we have seen some advantages and disadvantages and receive some feedback we want to share with the rest of the community. Specially interesting for developers and technical facilitators who want to share their own experiences in this topics and strengthen links between FLOSS technical communities and Latin American social movements. Intend to generate some ideas for improving the linkages between both spaces not only for the software itself but emphasizing the political aspects they share and how to empower grassroots movements using free/libre tools.
