"Experts claim that political and religious websites could disappear if the
Federal Government backs a plan  to hand control over the internet to the
UN's International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

A draft of the proposal, formulated in secret and only recently posted on
the ITU website for public perusal, reveal that if accepted, the changes
would allow government restriction or blocking of information disseminated
via the internet and create a global regime of monitoring internet
communications - including the demand that those who send and receive
information identify themselves."

This sounds pretty bad, I've been hearing about this proposal for a while
and now it's making the news.
