  Hi everyone,


  Many of you may be aware that next week the G8 will be meeting
  in France. President Sarkozy – who holds the rotating G8
  Presidency this year – has organized an “eG8” immediately
  before the G8summit, with a view to shaping the G8 agenda
  regarding key global internet policy issues. Indded, this is
  the first year that the internet’s role in society and the
  economy is explicitly on the G8 agenda.


  To express our concerns about this event a number of
  organizations have put together and signed a civil society
  statement (full text below) including Access, Reporters
  without Borders, EFF, Witness, Mobile Active, May First/People
  Link, The Guardian Project, Digital Democracy, ATTAC, LQDN,
  EDRi, APC, Movements.org and Open Rights Group.


  Other organizations wish to sign? Please send me an email by
  this Monday, May 23rd. Full text of the letter is below and

  If there are individuals who want to support efforts to
  influence the G8, please consider signing Access’ petition
  around this campaign:

  Thanks so much.

         DRAFT Civil Society Statement to the e-G8 and G8


  The signatories of this statement are representatives of civil
  society from around the world working towards the promotion of
  Internet freedom, digital rights, and open communication.


  We understand that the French Presidency of the G8 is holding
  a G8 internet meeting -- the "e-G8 Forum" -- immediately
  before the G8 Summit in Deauville, with a view to shaping the
  agenda of the G8 Summit regarding key global internet policy
  issues. This meeting is significant in that this is the first
  year that the internet’s role in society and the economy is
  explicitly on the G8 agenda.


  As key world leaders, your policies have a major influence on
  internet policy globally. Regrettably, certain policies being
  implemented in the most developed economies are undermining
  the open and neutral internet -- the very qualities that
  represent the essence of its democratic and economic
  potential. We believe that G8 Member States should use the
  e-G8 meeting as an opportunity to publicly commit to expanding
  internet access for all, combating digital censorship and
  surveillance, limiting online intermediary liability, and
  upholding principles of net neutrality.


  Internet Access for All

  We are particularly concerned about the increasing trend of
  nations cutting off citizens’ access to the Internet and
  mobile networks in times of crisis, as Egypt, Libya, Iran,
  China, Nepal, and Burma have all done. In many if not all of
  these countries, we see how important access to the Internet
  is as a gateway to a plethora of others civil, political, and
  fundamental human rights.


  Many G8 countries are actively pursuing policies that would
  similarly seek to restrict and control access; these policies
  legitimize actions of repressive regimes and threaten the core
  of the internet economy. As many nations endeavor to improve
  basic and universal access, the increase of restrictive
  policies in both the developed and developing world is a
  regressive and deeply worrying trend.


  Freedom from Online Censorship & Surveillance

  Simultaneously, repressive regimes are harnessing the
  internet’s power for their own purposes, often with the help
  of multinational corporations based in G8 countries. We urge
  you to end the sale of these technologies both at home and
  abroad, and put an end to these gross invasions of user
  privacy and security.


  Online Intermediary Liability and Intellectual Property

  To defend freedom of speech online it is critical that we
  resist mounting pressure from the entertainment industry and
  other sectors to impose greater intermediary liability on
  online service providers for the actions of their users (e.g.,
  HADOPI and ACTA).


  In this regard, we urge you to follow the example of the
  Brazilian government’s Principles for the Governance and Use
  of the Internet, specifically #7 which reads: “All action
  taken against illicit activity on the network must be aimed at
  those directly responsible for such activities, and not at the
  means of access and transport, always upholding the
  fundamental principles of freedom, privacy and the respect for
  human rights.”[6][1]


  Net Neutrality

  We further call on you to codify and commit your nations to
  protecting net neutrality -- the principle that all web
  traffic should be treated on an equitable basis no matter
  where it originated or the type of data being transmitted.


  These are some of the key Internet governance issues which we
  feel merit and require the attention of the G8. We also draw
  your attention to two comprehensive declarations of principles
  we believe should guide nation states in Internet governance:


  ●      The 10 Internet Rights and Principles developed under
  the aegis of the Internet Rights and Principles
  Coalition[7][2].

  ●      Assembly Declaration of the right of Communication,
  written at the World Social Forum 2011.[8][3]


  We would also like to highlight our concerns regarding the
  planning of the e-G8. We join our voices to the Internet
  Governance Caucus[9][4] which expresses our collective concern
  about the lack of representation of civil society at the e-G8
  and G8 meetings this year.


  Contrary to current best practices in policymaking, the invite
  list has been limited primarily to representatives of
  government and corporate leaders, who already enjoy
  disproportionately large influence over Internet regulation.
  Specifically, we are deeply concerned that corporate interests
  will dominate discussions at the e-G8 and G8 summits; issues
  like strict intellectual property enforcement and increasing
  online intermediary liability seem likely to take primacy over
  citizen-centered policies like net neutrality, Free Software,
  and combating online censorship.


  As corporations pay $100,000 for seats at the e-G8 table, few
  representatives of civil society are present to advocate for
  the priorities of citizen-users of the world. We are at a
  critical point in the history of the Internet and the struggle
  for human rights. As the elected leadership of some of the
  world’s most powerful nations, we urge you to act now to
  uphold and defend the principles of digital rights and
  internet freedom, not just for your citizens, but for people
  all over the world.
