Dear all

The 2014 IGF starts next week and the program is in place. For a quick 
overview of IRPC sessions see 
http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/site/ for links to Workshops 83 
<cid:part2.01070702.09030801 at irpcharter.org>, 146 
and the IRPC Roundtable and Meeting on Thursday afternoon at 4.30pm 

Some highlights of what the coalition has achieved during the summer 
1) The Turkish edition of the IRPC Charter Booklet 
ready online and we will be launching this edition along with the 2nd 
edition of the Arabic Booklet and 4th edition of the English booklet in 
Istanbul. Our thanks to the Turkish Pirate Party, in particular Serhat 
Koc and Burcu Baklioglu for their tireless attention to translation 
detail and coherence and to the WebWeWant campaign for financial support 
for the Turkish Booklet production, updating of the English booklet 
printrun and, for the near future, funds to finalise the full Spanish 
Booklet to accompany the Spanish language IRPC Charter 
We would also like to thank the Hivos IGMENA Program for their financial 
support of the Arabic Edition of the IRPC Charter Booklet 
and the translation effort that went into that . And, while we are at 
it, thanks to all German speakers who have been promoting the German 
released during the 2014 EuroDIG.

2) We also are looking forward to new participants in the netrights work 
in Turkey who have worked hard with Freedom House to put together one of 
the few sessions run by Turkish Civil Society on this year's program. It 
will be a great session (WS 225), 9am on Friday morning 
so bring your coffee and breakfast fare with you so we can show our 
support for this initiative.

We will be tweeting as @netrights, with main hashtag #netrights.

All in all a great week lined up with high quality panellists to move 
our conversations forward, and discuss next steps 
the IRPC Charter itself, and the IRP Coalition's contribution to the IGF 
in the year to come. There will be news and updates on several key 
projects that have been implementing the Charter on the ground in WS 83, 
case studies and discussions about anonymity as an integral part of 
human rights for the online environment in WS 146, and how freedoms 
online are at stake in the Turkish context in WS225.

We look forward to seeing you all there, in these sessions and others in 
which IRPC individuals and organizations are taking part, or organizing.

Safe travels all.
MF, RB and the IRPC SC
