someone hadn't heard...
> This Wednesday (4th July), the European Parliament resoundingly voted
> against ACTA!
> *The vote was 478 against, 39 in favour, with 165 abstentions.*
> This victory was thanks to *your continued pressure* which helped
> ensure that at every step of the way Europeâs representatives voted
> to reject the provisions within ACTA. We know that MEPs have been
> inundated with emails and calls from people who, just like you, have
> fought tirelessly in the defence of democratic freedoms.
> Your persistence has paid off: *MEPs have listened and stood up for
> democracy* â some of them doing so quite literally in a moment of
> post-vote triumph, holding placards reading â*Hello Democracy,
> Goodbye ACTA*.â
> Unwilling to let ACTA die, Commissioner Karel de Gucht announced that,
> regardless of the Parliament's rejection, the European Commission
> would wait for the ECJ's decision on the treaty's compatibility with
> fundamental rights and freedoms, before considering what to do next.
> This attempt to delay this issue further and pull the wool over our
> eyes will fail so long as the *Open Rights Group and activists like
> you remain vigilant*.
> With more threats on the horizon like the âSnooper's Charterâ now
> is the time to help ORG continue to*defend democracy and digital
> rights by joining today*!
