Dear Izumi,

Thank you for relaying the information about the future of the Internet
Governance Forum.

I personally completely agree and this is why I have relayed Wolf's
calls for petition.
Should the At-Large Community join the protest? I hope they will.
Should the ALAC join the protest and express its opinion in an official
communiqué? I am unsure whether this falls in its mandate.
I am already told that some RALO Operation Principles limit its
activities under the ICANN ambit.

This is why I would urge members and the community to sign the petitions
and to voice their concerns, but am unsure about having an official
ICANN At-Large statement.

Kind regards,
