“The final phase of the ACTA’s process in the European Parliament begins: “Industry” (ITRE), “Legal Affairs” (JURI) and “Civil Liberties” (LIBE) committees are about to vote on their reports, which will recommend to the European Parliament to adopt or to reject ACTA. These reports will have a strong political weight, and will influence the definitive decision. Until the Thursday’s votes, we still can make heard our voices and convince these committes’ members to express themself in favour of a firm and definitive rejection of ACTA.
The drafts of the reports of LIBE and ITRE committees, positive for the moment, still could be neutralized by the amendments deposited by pro-ACTA MEPs. We can act and defend these reports by calling the LIBE and ITRE members to vote against all these amendments. (read also: each amendments voted in ITRE and LIBE: http://www.laquadrature.net/wiki/ITRE_ACTA_report_amendments and http://www.laquadrature.net/wiki/LIBE_ACTA_report_amendments)
Within the JURI committee, the last public version of the Marielle Gallo’s report was completely favorable to ACTA. The voted one on Thursday will very probably be similar, even MEPs cannot propose those amendments. We cannot let this new procedural tricks become a success: it is still time to convince the JURI members to reject the Marielle Gallo’s report!
More than ever, to win during the final vote of July, we have to stay mobilized and to make our voice heard. Whether it is by relaying this information or by calling (free of charge) MEPs thanks to the PiPhone (https://piphone.lqdn.fr), each of us can act for the ACTA’s rejection.”
