Dear all

IGF 2014 has kicked off - from the perspective of Civil Society groups, 
individuals, and coalitions - today with the Best Bits Meeting 

The IGF meeting itself <http://igf2014.sched.org/>begins tomorrow; IRPC 
have set up a live blog 
<http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/site/irpc-live-blog/> for 
rolling updates on workshops and events during this week in Istanbul, to 
accompany news on Twitter etc. Several of us are contributing to this 
e.g. today during Best Bits, Dixie, Marianne were blogging/tweeting from 
Istanbul and Minda remotely, follow @netrights and the hashtag #netrights.

News Flash: The IGF website was down today, blocked. The IGF Schedule 
however is still available. This IGF meeting is an important chance for 
activists, academics, and others on the ground here mobilizing against 
internet censorship, and promoting recognition of all other rights and 
freedoms online to make their voices heard. If you can't make it here, 
do join us by remote participation in the four sessions we are 
co-organizing. More info at http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/site/.

And another piece of news: the IRPC Booklet shipment is being held at 
the airport by customs. People are working very hard here in Istanbul on 
our behalf to get the booklets released in time for Tuesday's Workshop 
and launch. But fear not, the Turkish Edition 
available online along with the Arabic, English, German ones and Spanish 
Charter translations at http://internetrightsandprinciples.org/site/.

Sign up for remote participation at the workshop room noted right at the 
bottom of each session: key ones for IRPC are WS83, 146, 225 (support 
our Pirate Party Movement Turkey colleagues) and our Roundtable-Meeting 
on Thursday at 4.30pm.

safe travels
