Hi Woody

You seem to be stretching the truth.  Internet shutdown is not  a new topic
and not the first time UN and other bodies dicuss it.
We may also diverge on  the impact of the succession  of events which
occurred during  the whole discussion.
I consider the afrinic  board statement[1], the panel discussion during
AIS2017  and the AF* statement [2] to have more Impact  as  they created
conditions for appropriate discussions, multi-stakeholders  engagement for
better outcomes.

I hope this helps...
