Dear all,

Please find enclosed a mail that came in over the bestbits list.

Both as a tactical and a strategic matter it might make sense to be part of the public delivery of the Protect Global Internet Freedom Statement (www.protectinternetfreedom.org<http://www.protectinternetfreedom.org>) and the press statement. It might be a good way to push the IRPs and our Charter as means to ensure Global Internet Freedom.

What do you think?

Kind regards

[bestbits] Notes from Yesterday's ITU "final push" phone call

Hi everyone,
  Several people on this list RSVP'd that they weren't able to make it but wanted to receive notes from yesterday's conference call.

Here are the notes:

One thing of note is that there was general consensus about the idea of Access, with other civil society organizations, organizing a public delivery of the Protect Global Internet Freedom Statement (www.protectinternetfreedom.org<http://www.protectinternetfreedom.org>), which has been signed by over 30,000 people and nearly 1,000 organizations from over 160 countries.

This would happen in Dubai on December 3rd and we expect it would generate significant media attention. The AFL-CIO (and their international labor parners) are reaching out to see if there are representatives from labor unions in the UAE or other priority countries who could be part of this delivery and we are hoping to have other CSOs be a part of it.

There also seems to be energy towards a joint press release among a variety of CSO's announcing the various actions that are happening around ITU.

If your organization would like to be part of either of these efforts, or offer a quote for the joint press release, please contact me.

Thanks for everyone's work.
