I also think that it would be nice, if the several Free Software
organisations worked stronger together on campaigns and shared
some money.

We could also take this idea further and incorporate a "Free Software
Organization Of The World" (or something like that), where organizations
like the FSFE, FSF, FSFLA etc. could be represented.
This would be a great opportunity not just to support each other but to
also help financially and structurally weak organizations establishing
local structures.
