We could also go to discuss data prices, which is a severe impairment for less developed countries.

>> Dear all,
>> Following Olivier's email sharing the Statement from DC- Core Internet Values, I would like add that we have a close relationship with our sister DC- CIV and that the IRPC shares the same values of a free, global, inclusive, user-centered and rights-based Internet. If there are no objections, I would be happy to reply to Olivier and to let the DC-CIV know of this Coalitions' endorsement.
>> I would suggest editing the last sentence of the point Regional Shutdowns to read along the lines below, to reflect Charter's Article 5 - Freedom of Expression & Information on the Internet:
>> “Shutdowns infringe basic human rights such as freedom of expression and the right to information with harmful consequences for people's lives.”

>> listed above.
>> As you know, the DCs operate in a United Nations environment that

>> The document is currently in draft form and has gone as far as possible
