Very sad that this has happened, Carlos. Lurches to the right seem 
commonplace these days.

Brazil was a great leader as regards multistakeholder internet 
governance initiatives, and I do hope that all is not lost with this 
change. Certainly what has been achieved in the past sets a great 
example and part of history which I hope is not forgotten.
