[okfn-discuss] Suggestion to sign the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness

Hi Rufus and list,

As every country has a parliament, it would be great to get it signed by
the local chapters as well. It's a stronger message: "people from your
country signed it and are backed by *** other organisations world-wide".
I do agree however that for most of the issues (those that are not bound
to one certain country), we should only have to vote for once, as OKFN.

Kind regards,
