  4. Hello people of the world.
  6. For a long, long time we have known that the #ITU (International Telecommunication Union) had internet governance takeover contingency plans scheduled for May 2013. This is known as #WTPF13, or the World Telecommunication/Information and Communication Technology Policy Forum.
  8. The #ITU would rather you not know hear anything at all about #WTPF13 if they can help it and we hope to change this.  Having observed the #ITU at length, pressured it to open itself to the world before #WCIT12, and having participated in #OpWCIT, we see no signs of the #ITU backing away from its attempt at statist and hegemonic control.  We call for a  new effort to address the May meeting - #OpWTF.
  10. Many people are not aware that the ITU planned #WTPF13 with net governance proposals even before #WCIT12 began. In fact, Hamadoun Touré, Secretary General of the #ITU on Jan. 10, 2013 released a 4th draft of #WTPF13 proposal supporting net governance takeover by the ITU. It is here:
  11. http://www.itu.int/md/S12-WTPF13PREP-R-0005/en This report will be the basis for the agenda of the meeting in May.
  13. Unfortunately the #ITU is still largely closed to public comment and does not provide a way for the public to give feedback on this report.  We encourage you to send them your opinions at the emails below:
