Subject: [IRP] New DRAFT Version 1.1 taking on board comments
At the following link you will find the new DRAFT Version 1.1 taking into
account the illuminating discussions that have been taking place over the past
couple of months:
The debates have been quite hasty and at times hard to keep up with: this is a
chance for everyone who would like to contribute to Version 1.1 to do so before
it is finalized. PLEASE SEND IN ANY COMMENTS BY JANUARY 8TH. Then, using those
comments, a final version 1.1 will be released for consultation!
A word of caution: I have not been able to incorporate every point, especially
where there are strongly conflicting views or where major changes have been
suggested without substantial support from the wider Coalition. However, Version
1.1 does not need to be perfect, just good enough to take outside of the
Coalition. So, please do look through this Version and if there are things which
you think must URGENTLY be changed before we finalize Version 1.1, please say
so. If there are things that you want to change but not necessarily in time for
Version 1.1, please do still contribute these thoughts as they will inform the
In the interests of not writing a giant essay, here are just a couple of points
which I wanted to highlight:
*Blocking and filtering: this was meant to be looked at in a final conference
call but unfortunately we ran out of time. I have tried to take on board
people?s concerns, however I know the language that I came up with is far from
great, so if anyone can clarify the meaning and language of this provision that
would be very helpful indeed.
*The sections on ?Human Dignity? and ?Equality before the law? have been removed
because they contained nothing except a repetition of the relevant UDHR right,
and so they were redundant and looked odd. Let me know if you disagree. I do
however think that human dignity is a relevant concept. Perhaps we could put a
clause about human dignity in the Preamble?
Furthermore, at the link above you will also find a document containing FAQs
about the Charter. This is an attempt to capture what the Charter is and explain
it in an easily communicable way for use both inside and outside of the
Coalition. If you have time to have a look at this document too then please do,
although if you only have time to read one, please choose the Charter.
I wish you all very happy holidays!
