Telecomix was originally created by a group of agents as a method to interact with the European Union and to direct the union towards a more open society. Telecomix has been a consultive body for the implementation of IPRED1, the European Telecoms Package and various other laws. Telecomix has also been involved in helping dissidents in Iran, Syria, Egypt, China and the rest of the world make their voices heard.

Telecomix is a name used by both WeRebuild and Telecomix. WeRebuild is a collaborative project used to propose and discuss laws as well as to collect information about politics and politicians. The Telecomix is the operative body that executes schemes and proposals presented by the WeRebuild.


[edit] Summary of actions

The Telecomix cluster has come to the conclusion that there are mainly two methods to guarantee free speech. The first method is to work with lobbyism against politicians in the European Union and the respective leaders of the member nations in order to help them with the legislative process. The other method to guarantee free speech is to use encryption, which was the reason why the Telecomix Crypto Munitions Bureau was formed. The first method was for a very long time the primary modus operandi of Telecomix.

Telecomix serves to offer its practices and processes as tools for other clusters of activists to freely use. These tools come in the form of tutorials, manuals, and collaborative performances which are inclusive to all interested in participating and receiving open, creative inspiration towards realizing ideals.

The spirit of collaboration is also strongly shared through hypersensitive interactions that prioritize emotional ideals such as love of creative communication and playfully intelligent fun. As such, Telecomix IRCocracy or friendocracy serves to welcome and nurture all those venturing into its association for refreshment, playfully energetic commaraderie and spontaneously serious dedication to engaging with vitally important trends and issues as soon as they arise.
