Dear all,

The final version of the text is here:
Sorry its not in English and in a pdf file 0.o But I'm sure people will be
working in the translations around here.

It's not perfect, but it is a great achievement and we will keep fighting
as we still have to approve it in the Senate.
Not sure if NetMundial comes first or before... probably first.

The level of coordination of representatives from civil society to reach
this was really amazing! it's a happy day for the Brazilians concerned with
internet rights indeed!

all the best
