list but it seem not to interest folks much and i really wonder why privacy
talks is at the current "status quo". Considering "snowden" (which is
largely bent on privacy) was one of the catalyst for the emergence of this
whole governance issue uproar(including the BR event).

Yeah the figure is quite interesting and surprising to me; i would expect
if this cannot be discussed within 1NET(considering 1NET is mainly for
global issues), it should at least be on tops agenda of IG platforms within
Africa. From a few IG list which i belong where this information was
shared, all what people said was "they are not aware such thing existed".
Fortunately, you now know so what is to be done about it? Unless we are all
waiting for its implementation before crying foul which will ofcourse be
unfortunate. Otherwise SM's resolve will then be valid.

This may have already been given the necessary attention on other platform
(which i don't know) and i will appreciate pointer to such efforts
