As an update to my posting this morning asking everyone to contact their MEPs and ask them to sign the Written Declaration 12/2010 on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, I just heard from Jérémie Zimmermann at La Quadrature du Net that the Declaration now has the necessary number of signatures by MEPs to become the agreed position of the European Parliament. He says;
WD12 is a strong political signal sent by the EP to the Commission that
ACTA is not tolerable as a way of bypassing democratic process; that
legislation related to Internet, freedom of speech and privacy cannot be
traded off in secrecy and under full influence of entertainment industry
lobbies. Whatever the content of the final agreement, ACTA will remain
an illegitimate circumvention of democracy and should be opposed as such.

Many thanks to everyone who joined me calling MEPs this morning - we did it!
