Today, @POLITICOEurope releases its list of 28 power players who shape Europe's technology landscape. A few Frenchies made their way to the list, on issues such as #copyright, privacy and sustainability 🔽 

1. Pierre Louette, chairman and CEO of Les Echos-Le Parisien: He is the face of the French press and its fight to get Google and Facebook to pay for news. 

2. Raphaël Glucksmann, MEP: The French intellectual-turned-politician has done more to bring attention to the labor conditions of the largely Muslim Uyghur minority in China’s Xinjiang region than any other European politician. 

3. Patrick Chaize, the French senator behind the country’s bill to green the tech sector. 

4. The team of La Quadrature du Net: Whenever France’s interior ministry pitches new security and surveillance measures — think facial-recognition cameras on the streets or police drones in the sky — it doesn’t take the digital rights NGO long to respond.
