NEMW - Alert: EU wants 'Internet G12' to govern cyberspace

If you haven't figured it out yet, especially the "Liberals" among you, all of the Western nations, particularly the English-speaking ones, which have supposedly stood as bulwarks against fascism, Nazism, Communism, etc, are ALL coordinating totalitarian laws based on the fraud of 9/11 to bring in a total clampdowns on their populations. They are all lining up the very same LAWS, which align with the EU laws, which harken back to the Soviet system. This circumvents the US Constitution and the rights of the individual secured therein. Just look through my archives for plenty of articles I have found on these subjects. Now consider the Hate Speech law already passed in the House and in the Senate Judiciary Committee,as well as this recent statement by Rupert Murdochand the article on this page.

If the US were to give up its 'governance' of the Net, under the protection of the Constitution to a world governance body, the Net will have to comply with foreign laws. Dissent will NOT be allowed on the Net. Any websites that go against 'acceptable' dissemination of information will be banned. Questioning the Holocaust will be a crime EVERYWHERE, questioning what the Israelis do in Palestine to its indigenous population will be CRIMINAL, questioning why the Israelis have hundreds of nuclear weapons will not be allowed. And those are only my favorite pet peeves. How about questioning 9/11? Or the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the escalation in Pakistan and the constant drumming for war with Iran?

Folks, you had BETTER wake yourself and your friends up. This is no joke, it is not a drill. They are making their move NOW.I suggest listening carefully to this program by Alan Watt. The last half hour pertains to this topic specifically.

EU wants 'Internet G12' to govern cyberspace

The European Commission wants the US to dissolve all government links with the body that 'governs' the internet, replacing it with an international forum for discussing internet governance and online security.

The rules and decisions on key internet governance issues, such as the creation of top level domains (such as .com and .eu) and managing the internet address system that ensures computers can connect to each other, are currently made by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a private, not-for profit corporation based in California which operates under an agreement with the US Department of Commerce.

The decisions made by ICANN affect the way the internet works all around the world.

EU information society commissioner Viviane Reding on Monday (4 May) suggested a new model for overseeing the internet from October this year, when the Commerce Department agreement runs out.

She called on US President Barack Obama to fully privatize ICANN and set up an independent judicial body, described as a "G12 for internet governance," which she described as a "multilateral forum for governments to discuss general internet governance policy and security issues."

"I trust that President Obama will have the courage, the wisdom and the respect for the global nature of the internet to pave the way in September for a new, more accountable, more transparent, more democratic and more multilateral form of Internet Governance," she said via a video message posted on her commission website.

The expiry of the agreement between ICANN and the US government "opens the door for the full privatization of ICANN, and it also raises the question of to whom ICANN should be accountable," she said.

"In the long run, it is not defendable that the government department of only one country has oversight of an internet function which is used by hundreds of millions of people in countries all over the world."

Instead, Brussels would prefer that an international government forum that to meet twice a year makes recommendations by majority vote to the newly privatized ICANN. The forum would be restricted to representatives from 12 countries, with a regional balance taken into consideration.

Her "Internet G12" would include two representatives each from North America, South America, Europe and Africa, three representatives from Asia and Australia, as well as the Chairman of ICANN as a non-voting member. International organizations with competences in this field meanwhile could be given observer status.

The new US administration's position on global internet governance is not yet clear. However, during the Bush administration, Washington was steadfastly opposed to handing ICANN over to the United Nations.

The commission will hold a conference on Wednesday (6 May) in Brussels to discuss the issue with Europe's internet community.
