Hi everyone,

I hope Peter and co. from Rhizomatica doesn't mind me sharing this, but I
just saw this (congrats!):

*Independent community network stands tall* – A Mexican civil society
association has won a legal battle for the right of indigenous communities
to establish and manage their own community networks. The ruling exempts
the nonprofit community network operator from a hefty fee levied on
traditional commercial providers, arguing that the continued availability
of affordable voice and data services in these remote communities is
important to uphold their basic human rights, including freedom of
expression.

community-telco-will-continue-to-operate-for-now/

Hard work well done!
