   The cooperative movement is one of the primary forces  for development that allows communities to retain control of their wealth and environment. It is critical for emerging cooperatives to identify other co-ops around the world, to learn from, to partner with, to develop trade that is focused on community health.

   Our little natural food cooperative has had the privilege of hosting cooperators from countries that are building or rebuilding their agricultural sectors. But we were dependent for our connection upon large co-ops that have international development divisions. How much better for all of us if we could have a reliable electronic way to locate each other.

   National and international bodies in the cooperative movement are well positioned to ensure that only true cooperatives receive the .co-op TLD. Please grant this TLD to the millions of co-op members around the world, who share a vision of cooperative, democratic economics.

Thank you.
