[Battlemesh] Open letter from European CNs to EU policy-makers

Dear all,

Just a reminder that the deadline for commenting and signing the open
letter is Wednesday 8th. We might extend the deadline for signature
until next week but, the text will be frozen from Wednesday on.


Many organizations that I'm pretty sure would like to sign the letter
are missing, including numerous community networks. So please don't
hesitate to share the link with people would might be interested. Having
many signatories is a must to ensure that the letter will have some
traction in ongoing discussion on telecom policy in Brussels.

Let me know if you have any pressing question.
