On 29 June 2006, the Human Rights Council adopted by consensus resolution 2006/3 renewing the mandate of the working group for a further two years so that it can now draft the optional protocol.  This will be the first session under the current mandate.  Participation of civil society organizations supportive of this mechanism is very important.
