Hi Juanma, 
It's great that you are addressing this new system, which sounds like it would be terrible for privacy. 

When I talk about digital privacy and free speech, I often recommend the FSF (and/or the EFF) but don't say "I am from the FSF" because I am not on the staff or board. I usually give the audience a link and encourage them to get involved. If you have a local LibrePlanet group or GNU/Linux User group that you help organize, you could say you are *from* that organization and share that group's information too. 

Finally, since you are in Europe you may want to see if this is on the FSFE's radar. They may already be working on something that you could coordinate with or might be willing to set something up to coordinate actions against this new system.   

Hope that helps,

Hi, all:

My first email here. =)

See, in my country (Spain) the goverment had just bought a software
called "Evident X-Stream" which is, at a first sight, a tool that can
store any kind of conversation (telephone, email, chat, social
networks, etc) and retrieve the localization of people involved in it.
They're using the yihadist terrorism excuse to impose this
restrictions to our privacy rights. It seems it going to be fully
operational at some point of 2017.

I think is a good "excuse" to make a speech/talk in my city to get
people more in touch with this kind of stuff. I'll try to get in
contact with the people of La casa invisible (
which is a self-managed space run by neighbours in the center of
Málaga. They have a software department and they are always open to
new ideas and proposals so I think there are going to be no problems
at all.

What do you think about this? How should I proceed? Should I use the
name of the Free Software Foundation? Libre planet? Can I include
myself in any of the organizations while introducing the speech? Both?
Which material should I use?

Sorry for all this questions but I'm a bit lost right now... I can do
the speech as a independent person but I thought it can be good for
the FSF if I promote it at the same time...

Kind regards,
