*The Boycott-Novell protest that was staged during the National Conference
at Kochi was really unfortunate. Not because of the ideology of Boycott-Novell,
but the the intentions of some of the protesters.
Was it good to paste posters in other stalls and on someone else's posters?
Was not it against the principles of freedom? Was it good enough to
challenge the organizers that 10 posters will be pasted for each one
removed? So the intentions seemed to be to interrupt the function rather
than raising a cause. And the saddest part is that the protester himself was
one of the organizer. The organizers gave us the opportunity to raise our
concerns through open forum or  posters, but with out infringing on others
freedom,without disrupting the function.
Why some among us is writing articles in news papers opposing such
initiatives live Kochi Conference? Do you think it was journalist who dug up
the issue of cpim hijack of FSF. Some among us are creating confusion
regarding the GRAND HIJACK THEORY. Why does not the FSF people stop the
double speak. Please make the things straight and clean. Cpim has supported
free software the most. Does not we need its support. Or why should we
accept its support and then accuse it of hijacking. if its true then please
come forward with press release on FSF letter pad accusing cpim so that we
can end the controversies.
Why FSF still does not condemn the undemocratic, immoral way of protest that
took place. Are these happening with the knowledge of FSF persons who were
present in the venue. Are they supporting these.

FSF should distance itself from undemocratic,illegal, immoral and
unjustifiable acts of protest.
