Dear all,As a member of NCUC, after following the process of construction of the NCSG charter submitted by NCUC in March 2009, I consider ICANN's decision of ignoring the Consensus Charter created by Noncommercial Users unacceptable. In discarding the result of NCUC's work, ICANN not only disappoints but also disrespects the NCUC's members and the open and participatory process that has build the NCSG charter submitted by NCUC – which was supported by more than 80 noncommercial individuals and organizations.
If ICANN ignores and discards the NCSG charter – built in a democratic, bottom-up process – and imposes the ICANN staff drafted charter for a Noncommercial Stakeholder Group, it makes us feel there's a lack of commitment to democratic, transparent and participatory processes in ICANN. Please reconsider this decision and reinstate the charter that was drafted by civil society and submitted by NCUC.
Regards, Graciela Selaimen NCUC member Brazil
