ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!
Please help us to send a clear message to our European Parliamentarians in defence of fundamental rights, privacy, transparency and judicial due processs. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement is now being negotiated in secret by the EU, the US and 10 other countries. This international trade accord that will soon be concluded could threaten consumer rights and innovation by means of heavy-handed criminal enforcement measures and the private policing of Internet .
Once an agreement is reached by negotiating parties the European Parliament must give its assent to the ACTA treaty.
Four members of the European Parliament from different political groups have put forth Written Declaration 12 below that needs the majority of the members to become the official opinion of the elected representatives of the European Union. If this declartion is approved it will send a strong message to EU leaders and to EU member states. From the 6th to the 9th of September are the last days to reach a majority of signatures of MEPs. Please contact (by e-mail or telephone) MEPs from your country who haven´t yet signed on the list attached and ask them to demand the respect of citizen and consumer rights by signing Written Declaration 12.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
