Reject ACTA, European Parliament Trade Committee Recommends 24

Qedward writes "The European Parliament's trade committee, INTA, voted on Thursday not to postpone a crucial parliamentary vote on the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. The committee also decided, by 19 votes to 12, to recommend to the Parliament that the trade deal be rejected. INTA is the lead committee examining the international agreement, and its recommendation will carry weight with the rest of the Parliament. The Parliamentary plenary vote on the treaty is now scheduled for July 3."

    If they do vote in private and approve ACTA, despite the Trade Committee's recommendation, I will be writing to my MEP questioning why I should keep him in his seat come the next election, and not spend my time and energy seeing that he is ousted at the first opportunity.

    Trust is earned. If I can't trust my representatives, then I need new ones.

All the evidence concerning the universe has not yet been collected, so there's still hope.
