Free Software Foundation president Richard Stallman (RMS) was in Romania this month, to deliver the keynote speech at the Fundația Ceata-organized Coliberator 2017 conference (2017-10-07-08), at the Biblioteca Centrală a Universității Politehnica din București, in Bucharest, on October 7th, to about 140 people. While there, he also spoke to students at a GNU/Linux Install Fest.

To coincide with the conference, the foundation's partners organized satellite events. In Iași, on October 9th, at the Universitatea Tehnică "Gh. Asachi" din Iași, RMS met with Tranzit's diverse community of activists, artists, political science students, and software developers.

And in Timișoara, about 450 people packed the auditorium of the Universitatea Politehnica Timișoara, in an event co-organized by the Computer Science Department, to hear him give his speech “Free Software and Your Freedom”:
