>An International Campaign has been established to influence the current
>round of negotiations over the Wassenaar Arrangement. Among many other
>items the Wassenaar Arrangement covers restrictions on export of
>cryptography from the 33 nations which are signatory to the Arrangement.
>Technical experts are currently meeting in Vienna to discuss the
>arrangement. Some of the technical experts are proposing that export
>restrictions on strong cryptography should be tightened.
>GILC Member Statement
>On 15th September Members of the Global Internet Liberty Campaign issued
>a statement calling on the signatories to the Wassenaar Arrangement to
>remove controls over the export of cryptography. The statement argues
>that according to the stated aims of the Wassenaar Declaration it should not
>restrict the export of cryptography.
>Since the release of the GILC Member Declaration there has been press
>coverage of the campaign in Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, the UK
>and the US.
>Support for the GILC Member Declaration has been expressed by 23 companies
>and associations, who have "signed" the following statement:
> We, the undersigned companies and associations support the Global Internet
> Liberty Campaign Member Statement of 15th September 1998 calling for the
> removal of cryptography export restrictions from the Wassenaar Arrangement.
>If your company or association wishes to "sign" the above support statement
>and you are authorised to sign statements on behalf of your company or
>association, please write to <firstname.lastname@example.org> giving your company or
>association name, web address and country.
>Since the beginning of the campaign we have been searching for people to
>coordinate the campaign in the 33 nations signatory to the Wassenaar
>Arrangement. To date we have coordinators in 16 of the 33 nations. We are
>still looking for coordinators in the remaining 17 countries. National
>coordinators are listed at <http://www.efa.org.au/wassenaar/country.html>.
>If you are interested in taking part in the campaign please contact your
>national coordinator. If there is not one in your country please consider
>taking on the role. If you want to, or know someone who might, please
