Thanks for being transparent about the source of funding.

I note that there was the following signatories:

   Sivaldo Pereira da Silva - Intervozes, Brazil
   Alex Gakuru - ICT Consumer's Association of Kenya, Kenya
   Bruce Girard - Fundación Comunic, Uruguay

I did not find any other country located in the 
Southern Hemisphere.  I find it difficult to 
believe that the contribution could be 
representative of the views from the Southern 
Hemisphere.  The problem with representativity is 
that it raises questions about whether a group is 
actually representative of the interests it seeks to represent.
