Gracias Juan Manuel por compartir este importante discurso de apertura en
la lista.
Importante para la sociedad civil y que sea NUPEF, a través de Carlos, es
un gran placer.

Asi mismo avanzan las sesiones, todas ellas muy interesantes, pero no
podemos asistir a todas. Seguro en la próxima teleconferencia dedicaremos 5
minutos para comentarles lo mas importante del IGF.

> Your Excellencies, Mr Wu Hongbo, Under Secretary General, Undesa,
> Chairman minister Ali Abatov, Secretary Chengetai Masango, in the name
> of whom I wish to salute all present authorities; ladies and gentlemen:
> I have been assigned the honorable task of speaking in the opening
> ceremony of this IGF in the name of civil society organizations, social
> movements and individuals active in Internet governance processes, many
> of them involved in these processes since the inception of WSIS nearly
> 10 years ago. Several of them collaborated with me in drafting the
> following statement.
> We believe that the absence of gatekeepers and the open, global
> communication enabled by the Internet is crucial to realize the promise
> of Article 19 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To impose
> restrictions (legal or otherwise) to the free flow of information is and
> has always been contrary to the individual human right to freedom of
> expression.
> We therefore oppose efforts to create "national Internets," or to block
> and filter Internet access in ways that deny individuals access to
> applications, content and services of their choice.
> All attempts to deem certain forms of communication and information
> illegal and restrict or block them must follow established, transparent,
> due processes of law and should not involve prior restraint.
> We oppose efforts to militarize the Internet, or any actions that would
> foster a destructive and wasteful cyber arms race among governments or
> private actors. We consider the covert use of exploits and malware for
> surveillance or attacks to be criminal regardless of whether they are
> deployed by governments, private corporations or organized criminals.
> We are skeptical of efforts to subordinate the design and use of
> information and communication technology to "national security" agendas.
> We believe that Internet security will be achieved primarily at the
> operational level and that national security and military agendas often
> work against rather than for users' security needs.
> In the processes of policy formulation, we emphasize the need to
> prioritize dialogue with policy makers over their subordinated law
> enforcement agencies.
> Global governance institutions should not be restricted to states, so we
> welcome the additional participation in global policy making that
> multi-stakeholder processes provide. But we caution that
> multi-stakeholder participation is not an end in itself.
> Opening up global governance institutions to additional voices from
> civil society and business does not by itself ensure that individual
> rights are adequately protected or that the best substantive policies
> are developed and enforced.
> In the informal spaces created by pluralist institutions, it is possible
> that powerful governmental and corporate actors can make deals contrary
> to the interests of Internet users.
> Multistakeholder processes, while involving all interest groups, must
> incorporate and institutionalize concepts of due process, separation of
> powers and user's inalienable civil and political rights, and
> governmental decision-making ought to take into account the inputs of
> all participants of such pluralist processes.
> Let us remind ourselves that participation goes beyond representation,
> and participation in decision-making goes beyond just debates and
> dialogues.
> Regarding the ITR review process to be concluded in Dubai (and here I
> use the standard terminology the technical community defines to refer to
> the different components of the network):
> We agree that the internet layer and the layers above it (transport
> layer and applications layer) should not be included in any way in the
> regulations, while the free flow of Internet packets should be
> guaranteed in the link layer, in line with network neutrality in which
> Internet packets are never touched by the operators providing the
> physical connectivity infrastructure.
> Let the Internet flourish freely to the benefit of those who live at its
> edges, which are all of us. Thank you.
