Dear IRPrs,

We wanted to share some highlights and updates of recent IRPC activity:

   - A short time ago the IRPC gained official Observer status on the
   Council of Europe’s Steering Committee on Media Information and Society
   (CDMSI), and one of the first duties was submitting a response to
   Recommendation 2077 (2015): Increasing co-operation against cyberterrorism
   and other largescale attacks on the Internet.  Please see the attached PDF
   for the full response.

   - A Portuguese translation of the IRPC Charter is underway and will be
   completed in time for formatting and printing for the tenth annual IGF
   meeting in João Pessoa, Brazil, on 10 to 13 November 2015. 10 IRP Rights
   and Principles are already available in Portuguese on the IRPC website:
   IRPC will be pursuing funds for layout and printing of the Portuguese, and
   printing of the Spanish, and English editions of the Charter Booklet for
   IGF.  The aim is to launch the Portuguese edition at the 2015 IGF.

   - The IRPC Steering Committee’s submission to the WSIS+10 Non Paper will
   be released at the end of this month and will eventually develop into the
   final outcome document to be adopted by the United Nations General Assembly
   this December:

   contributions by relevant stakeholders can by found here:
   http://unpan3.un.org/wsis10/nonpapersubmissions )

   - Read the new blog post “Forza Internet Rights: IRPC Charter as Source
   of Inspiration for Innovative Italian Declaration of Internet Rights”
   written by IRPC Steering Committee Member Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann here:
    "Not only was the IRPC Charter a source of inspiration for the Italian
   Declaration, but both documents share similar approaches to human rights
   and their role in furthering a people-centred and sustainable information
   society. Charter and Declaration also transcend the artificial separation
   of social and economic and civil and political rights."

   - ***Charter consultation launch** *Lastly, the IRP Coalition has
   submitted the IRPC Charter of Human Rights and Principles for the Internet
   for endorsement and feedback as part of the Dynamic Coalition Main Session
   scheduled for the 2015 IGF meeting in Brazil. “The IRPC Charter has been
   acknowledged as an authoritative framework for implementing human rights
   for the online environment, and as an integral part of internet governance
   processes since it was launched in 2011.” *This is an important
   milestone in the public timeline of the Charter work and a terrific time to
   show support for the Charter and other Dynamic Coalitions by commenting on
   submissions on the IGF website:* http://review.intgovforum.org/?p=425
