Hi all, 

Thanks for your input on this. Given the positive comments about the Necessary and Proportionate principles, as well as the fact that they are already supported by others in the movement – including Wikimedia Mexico and folks on this list – we will sign on to the principles tomorrow.  

We will also continue exploring other opportunities to oppose mass surveillance in order to protect free expression and privacy.

I am also involved on the coalition and contributed to the process of
drafting the Necessary and proportionate principles.  Having WMF in the
coalition would be good news for the privacy activists and for the WM
movement as well.
