>   * 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
The 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:

>   * 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
>   * */**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*/
> We will send another email about more activities in preparation for
the upcoming IGF.
