Discussion:Telecoms Package Campaign

De La Quadrature du Net

German Translation - work in progress / Traduction allemand:[modifier]

I thought I'd start with the translation here on discussion and copy it back once it's finished

This part is still not translated:

I tried to machine translate this page for the dutch/french parts but bablefish throws up a report back page as oppose to a translation???

PDF[modifier]

Is there anybody translating the PDF "Telecom Package Warning Document" yet? If not, I would start, but don't want to lose my time in sth already existing... -- 92.193.30.158 3 juillet 2008 à 10:20 (UTC)

Phone call example[modifier]

  • Hello, i am ... , living in ..., I am calling you today regarding the Telecom Package, as I understand mrs/mr MEP is working on it, and there is an important vote on July the 7th. (let your correspondent introduce herself, give her opinion and infos on the question, etc.)
  • I have sent sent you an email outlining my concerns, published by La Quadrature du Net. did you read it yet?


  • depending on what your correspondent answers:
    • If she didn't read it:

It explains that instead of protecting the consumer, the telecom package directives could allow surveillance and control over the internet, loss of control of personal data, by means such as the "graduated response" of the french president Sarkozy. What do you think about that?


    • If she did read it:

What do you think of its conclusions that, instead of protecting the consumer, the telecom package directives could allow surveillance and control over the internet, by means such as the "graduated response" of the french president Sarkozy?


  • Depending the MEP you're in relation with:
    • If she's a member of IMCO or ITRE committee

Will Mrs/Mr MEP vote against those dispositions, and specifically the amendements H1, K1, K2, H2, on the 7th July vote? (Ask for a strong commitment or the reasons for a refusal)


    • If she's a group president

Will Mrs/Mr MEP ask to the members of IMCO or ITRE commitee from the GroupName group to reject those dispositions, and especially amendments H1, K1, K2, and H2, on the 7th july vote? (Ask for a strong commitment, or the reasons of a refusal)


    • If she isn't member of IMCO or ITRE committee.
