Save the Internet
European Regulators are about to decide whether to give big telecoms corporations the power to influence what we can (and can’t) do online. Europe urgently needs clear net neutrality guidelines to protect our freedoms and rights online. We have until July to help Europe protect the open Internet.

In June 2016, BEREC plans to publish its draft guidelines and launch a public consultation. However, BEREC’s procedural rules say that the public only has from June 6th to July 18th to respond and the Regulation says that BEREC needs to publish its final guidelines on 30 August 2016. That means that citizens will only have a few weeks to respond to the consultation and BEREC will only have a little bit over a month to process the (potentially thousands of) comments, draft updates to its guidelines and then go through the administrative processes to formally agree to any changes that it makes to the draft.
This is a crucial moment: This is the step where big successes were achieved in the United States and India. Therefore, we have to continue pushing for real net neutrality by convincing the regulators about the value of a free and open Internet.
Regulators need to equip themselves with the tools to enforce net neutrality. In Save The Internet, we think BEREC will not have enough time to process and duly take into account potentially tens of thousands of responses (the US telecoms regulator received 3.7 million responses to its consultation!). We can redress the balance by enabling everybody to properly contribute to the guidelines in a more efficient way.
Recently, BEREC organised face-to-face meetings with stakeholder groups. We have translated the questions that BEREC asked stakeholders (see here and here) in those meetings into plain English and added few others when we felt this was necessary.

ED Noor: This development is, indeed, historical. There is now evidence that the `victims` of violence by Trump supporters were well-paid agitators with direct connections to the Clinton campaign, sent to create situations to discredit Donald Trump and his base.

Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Office in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin affirmed that the US-led coalition systematically destroys infrastructure in Syria and carries out airstrikes against civilians and the Syrian Arab Army. “While hysteria is being whipped up around Aleppo, the US-led coalition has been systematically destroying infrastructure in government-controlled areas, delivering crushing strikes to civilians and the Syrian Army, and now seems to intend to squeeze ISIS terrorists from the Iraqi city of Mosul into Syria,”Borodavkin said during a special session of the UN Human Rights Council on Friday. Borodavkin said that “certain countries continue placing stakes on terrorists and extremists, rendering them political and propaganda assistance, supplying them with arms and ammunition.” He pointed out that the parties that called for holding a special session of the UN Human Rights Council about Syria are trying to protect terrorists and keep them away from the airstrikes in Aleppo.

The General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces said the supporters of international terrorism are trying to secure safe routes and corridors for the ISIS terrorists who are fleeing Iraq’s Mosul to cross into Syria. In a statement on Tuesday, the Command said a “malicious scheme” by the backers of international terrorism, mainly the US and Saudi Arabia, is unfolding and becoming clear after military operations were launched by the brotherly Iraqi army and its supporting forces to liberate Mosul city from the gangs of ISIS terrorist organization. The scheme, the statement explained, is to provide safe routes for the groupings of ISIS terrorists who are reeling under the Iraqi army’s strikes in Mosul-Iraq’s second largest city-to cross the border into the Syrian territory… … …
The imminent fight over Mosul might be the reason why John Kerry dialed down his hypocritical howling over east-Aleppo in Syria which is under attack from Syrian and Russian forces. The attack on Mosul proceeds on three axes. From the north Kurdish Peshmerga under U.S. special force advisors lead the fighting. Iraqi forces attack from the east and south. The way to the west, towards Syria, is open. The intend of the U.S. is to let ISIS fighters, several thousand of them, flee to Deir Ezzor and Raqqa in Syria. They are needed there to further destroy the Syrian state. The “mistake” of the U.S. bombing of Syrian army positions in Deir Ezzor was in support of that plan. The Turks are openly talking about such an escape plan for ISIS in Mosul. The Turkish news agency Anadolu published this “sensitive” operations plan. Point 4 says: “An escape corridor into Syria will be left for Daesh so they can vacate Mosul”. The U.S. hopes that the influx of ISIS fighters into Syria will keep the Russians and Iranians trapped in the “quagmire” Obama prescribed and finally destroy the Syrian state. The only U.S. “hope” for its Syria plans is now the facilitation of another ISIS influx. That and the CIA coordinated actions of its allies. The Saudis Foreign Minister announced that his country will increase weapons flow to its al-Qaeda proxies in Syria. The “rebels” are still receiving TOW anti-tank missiles and other heavy weapons… … …
