> Citizen summit on migration
> The Council of the European Union will meet in Paris on 13 and 14 October with the aim of adopting a "European pact on immigration and asylum". Moreover, the second Euro-African inter-ministerial conference on migration and development will take place in Paris on 20-21 October. It is high time that the issue of migration and development be really considered in terms of common interests, interests shared by the countries of origin, by the countries migrants go through, by the destination countries, but most importantly, the interests of the migrants themselves. We want another Europe than the one that is becoming a fortress and that is taking disproportionate measures to prevent people from entering its territory and expel those who have entered. We reject the systematisation of detention centres and forced returns. Following the first non-governmental Euro-African conference on "migration, freedom of circulation and fundamental rights", we are calling for a wide participation, in Paris on October 17th and 18th, to promote another vision of immigration and another type of relationship between the European Union, Africa and the rest of the world. We will hold the second non-governmental Euro-African conference, organise a big rally to request another European policy.

> 3rd World Social Forum on Migrations
> The 3rd World Social Forum on Migrations is set to be held in Rivas-Vaciamadrid on 11-13 September, as part of the process intiated by the World Social Forums since 2001, as "a space for democratic debates on ideas, for reflection, for the formulation of proposals and for the interchange of ideas. It provides articulation of social movements, networks, NGO’s, and other organizations in the civil society who oppose the neo-liberal globalization lead by the big co-operations who serve their interests and the consequences of their dominance, amongst other things, the restriction of citizen recognition, and of the civil, social, political and cultural rights, due to a free circulation of capital which is not accompanied by the free circulation of people." The thematic blocks are: Globalization and migration; Societies of origin and alternative development; Borders and human rights; Societies at destination and the situation of migrants; and Asylum and displacement

> 24th Chaos Communication Congress: Call for Participation
> The Chaos Communication Congress is the annual four-day conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC). The 24C3s slogan is Volldampf voraus!— the German equivalent of “full steam ahead” – a particular request for talks and projects featuring forward looking hands-on topics. CCC has always encouraged creative and unorthodox interaction with technology and society, in the good tradition of the real meaning of “hacking”. This year’s congress introduces a new category for talks called “Making”. This category is all about making and breaking things and the wonderful stuff you can build in your basement or garage. Most welcome are submissions dealing with the latest in electronics, 3D-fabbing, climate-change survival technology, robots and drones, steam machines, alternative transportation tools and guerilla-style knitting.

> The Great British Citizenship Quiz
> Since November 2005, immigrants seeking British citizenship have had to sit an official test to prove their suitability. Earlier this year Gordon Brown proposed that immigrants should undertake community work before being granted citizenship, and that they should understand citizenship as a ‘contract’ entailing ‘rights and responsibilities’. But is being a good citizen really about (in)voluntary work, or learning a list of rights and responsibilities? Can a multiple-choice test define what it means to belong in and contribute to a country? The next Manifesto Club night on Thursday 27 September will give you a chance to sit the test, to show the kinds of questions potential citizens are expected to answer. The night is part of a larger debate we want to start on the meaning of citizenship – on how to forge bonds of common interest between people of all backgrounds...

> Information event on Article 129a terrorist procedures in Berlin and Germany's security politics
> At the end of July 2007, seven persons, accused of membership of a terrorist organisation, were arrested in Berlin, Germany. Three are charged with arson against army vehicles, the other four of some form of “intellectual culpability”, whereby their scientific publications critical of gentrification and security state features are used to construct a terrorist organisation. Their arrests form the current highpoint in the general criminalisation of critical science and protest movements reminiscent of the 1980s. This info-event will inform about this case but also provide information on the history of Germany’s anti-terrorist Article 129a Criminal Code and its political use, more security laws in the planning, and asks what the implications of the gradual erosion of civil liberties means for state critics today.

> We are moving to a world of ubiquitous surveillance, faster than anyone could have imagined. More ominously, the computers that take charge of the world, aptly foretold in Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, are here. Meet Hal, your new cell phone, that will decide when it will turn itself on and on off, and when it will report your geographical location to the authorities. Meet Hal, your new refrigerator that reorders the food as it expires…or not, depending on what your health care provider stipulates. Meet Hal, the robot that is looking after your mother in her assisted living apartment, nagging her to take her pills, monitoring her blood sugar, her caloric intake, and her mood swings. Meet Hal, the resource manager that operates on behalf of your utility company to ensure you do not over-consume. Meet Hal, the friendly update manager who takes over your computer to make sure you have the latest anti-virus protection, the latest digital rights management software to ensure you only do what you are allowed to do with the music you buy. Who is in control of this new world?

> Public conference and debate session organised by the Association of Spanish Civil Service Archive Workers, a group that is working for the defence of public archives as a guarantee of administrative transparency and the defence of citizens' rights. AEFP draws attention to an article in the draft "law on historical memory" that replaces access to documents identifying possible culprits or people involved in specific actions, with a certification of their content. In relation to documents about repression in Spain's recent history, they ask: is it protection of privacy or a way to ensure impunity?
