* I can try to promote the GS list, maybe a GS-español list?
* And also help with meetups in Argentina/bs as,
* I dont think that the language is a problem at least for running
relays and exit nodes, the problem we have here is more related to the

for at least 2 or 3 years, this has already happened.
* If you need help traducing things to spanish we can help with that.

this event is done every month. This year there was a talk about tor
exit nodes and the argentinian legal system at the ekoparty[1] (I think
is the biggest security conference in latin america, like a global south
