The team’s goal is to carry out bilingual media coverage in English and French and publish it in the 3rd issue of the international feminist magazine, Digitall Future. The publication is a product of ENAWA (European North American WomenAction – www.enawa.org) network and realized under co-direction of Les Pénélopes in France and the International Information Centre and Archives for the Women’s Movement (IIAV) in the Netherlands.
The third issue of Digitall Future is due out in the beginning of January 2006. This edition will mainly focus on communication rights, information democracy, the free software movement and privatization policies, sex trafficking through ITs, newly created UN financial policies and the legitimacy of the private sector. There will also be a special section on the situation of government repression of individual freedom of expression in Tunisia. The French members of the team will monitor the event from home and boycott the WSIS making a statement against France’s complicity as the former colonial power within the region.
After the first phase of the WSIS conference in Geneva, the European Social Forum in London and the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, the Digitall Future team is dedicated to participating in international gatherings in order to network, learn about current issues and disseminate information from a feminist perspective.
The following is a list of Digitall Future’s media team who will be attending WSIS:
