Help sign the Written declaration 12/2010 against ACTA


5 minutes to help the European Parliament reject ACTA!


What?

The Written declaration 12/2010 was tabled by the Members of European Parliament Castex, Roithova, Alvaro and Lambrinidis. It opposes the ACTA by declaring that the negociated agreement must respect freedom of expression, privacy and Net neutrality (by protecting Internet actors against excessive legal liability). It calls on the Commission to publish all the texts under negociation.

There are now three months to collect signatures of half the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). It will then become an official position of the European Parliament. The more signature will be collected, the stronger the political value of the signed declaration will be.

Inside or outside the Parliament, every European citizen can participate to this endeavour!
