Dear all,

Please find enclosed, a statement issued by Just Net Coalition addressed 
to the leaders of BRICS countries assembled in Fortaleza, Brazil. 
Alternatively, you can also find the statement at: 
The statement seeks their active role in a new global Internet 
governance dispensation, which is democratic, and promotes human rights, 
equity and social justice for all.

The annex to the statement carries a set of concrete recommendations on 
how BRICS countries should take a lead in developing open source basic 
operating systems, software and applications that should then be made 
available to all as public utilities. To do so is fundamental to 
reclaiming the Internet as a global commons , which serves as a equal 
playing field for all to use it for their purposes and benefits. It is 
also necessary to regain the trust in the Internet and ensure 
communication which is safe and fully protects people's privacy.

We are happy to receive feedback on this.
