1.1. History and development of the IUF IUF Brazil 2015

Because IGF fails to address issues such as: the controversies of the Brazilian Civil Rights Framework for the Internet; the fact that since 2013 law enforcement from Brazil has been acquiring surveillance devices from "Hacking Team" to be used against activists; the recent Brazilian laws institutionalizing mass surveillance and data retention of all of its citizens; the congressional attempts to increase custody of massive logs and data to all the population and the ongoing process of criminalizing as terrorism any kind of hacktivism, Brazilian activists decided to organize their own forum in November 2015, parallel to the IGF that was going to be held in Joao Pessoa, Brazil.
