Orange group: results of first iteration

We need to reclaim the internet as a common good that is accessible to everyone in order to ensure:

1. Net neutrality

2. Digital sovereignty vs monopolies

3. Privacy plus data liberation

4. Protection of digital commons

5. Internet as a public good

6. Private financing of the internet

7. No technophobia

 

Orange group: results of second iteration

Move towards a global body of all internet citizens that assures access and the goals established yesterday. Tomorrow: privacy, transparency, etc.

Orange group: results of third iteration and final statement

We need to reclaim the internet as a common good that is accessible to everyone in order to insure:

1. A fundamental right to privacy

2. The right to be forgotten

3. Transparency for governments and corporations and privacy for individuals

4. Whistle blower/journalist and source protection

5. Protect net neutrality

6. Digital sovereignty with common, cooperative and public ownership of a platform

7. Protect workers’ rights on the internet

8. Promotion of digital/media education

9. Acknowledge the environmental and social aspects of the internet

We propose a participatory global constituent process that develops a charter based on these principles and creates a global body to preserve these principles and oversee their implementation.

We also encourage the establishment of a public bank of software and code.

White Christian supremacy vs queer liberation theology
