I was about to write a long and passionate post imploring you to contact your MEPs one last time in order to get them to sign up to the important Written Declaration on ACTA. But I find that my fellow blogger Simon Phipps has already put together pretty much that post:
A group of MEPs have tabled a Written Declaration that would clearly signal the Parliament's view about this attempted fait accomplis to the Commission. That Declaration is nine signatures short of ratification. I've created a list of the MEPs in the UK who haven't signed yet – why not go now, take a look at my list and contact your MEP if they are on it? Your personal action today could make a real difference to our collective liberties tomorrow.
I don't need to add much to that – I've already written about the horrors of ACTA ad nauseam (and it is pretty nauseous). The key point is that we are just nine signatures short of getting the necessary majority for the Written Declaration to have real power: please send a message to any of the MEPs listed on Simon's other blog, who haven't signed yet, and who could make all the difference...
