While any one of my 400+ Facebook “friends” could probably share my emotive bits and pieces with their networks of friends, and some of them do, the fact remains that most issues are forgotten very quickly, especially if they don’t directly affect most folks. I continue to look for a Namibian equivalent of Avaaz, but alas, no such luck.
Hold on to your breakfast…
Another issue which failed to elicit much reaction from my FB friends –
While it’s a slap in the face of internet freedom fighters in Namibia, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that our ITU representatives signed the treaty. They’ve always enjoyed being in control, even though it’s anyone’s guess who these Namibian decision makers were, this time round… Come to think of it, though, it’s also quite possible that they gave their proxy to the Russian delegation in order to do some last minute shopping. Why else would anyone convene a meeting of government officials in Dubai :-)?
