Thanks for your email expressing your concerns on ACTA. I can assure you that we – and our Green colleagues in the European Parliament – will vote against this malicious treaty next week in plenary session.
Αυτό το μήνα σε 72 Δημόσιες και Δημοτικές βιβλιοθήκες, τρέχει ένα πλούσιο πρόγραμμα εκδηλώσεων για παιδιά με τη στήριξη του Future Library και του Ιδρύματος “Σταύρος Νιάρχος”. Τι πιο όμορφο από αυτό; Πρόκειται για ιδανική προώθηση των υπηρεσιών των βιβλιοθηκών και μάλιστα με έναν άρτια συντονισμένο τρόπο ώστε η διαφήμισή μας να είναι μαζική. Όλα αυτά, όμως, τα ξέρετε πολύ καλά μιας και μιλάμε γι’ αυτά εδώ και μήνες.
thank you very much for your message. As rapporteur in the ITRE committee, I was able to convince my colleagues to follow my recommendation to reject ACTA in ITRE. In my role as shadow rapporteur in the INTA committee, I had the chance to present the manifold objections to ACTA to the members of the committee.
I have been fighting acta since 2008 and during the whole process I have considered ACTA completely biased towards protecting business interests, not culture, economy, consumers, the right to access to medicines, free speech and not even protecting legitimate rights to goods legally purchased. Furthermore it limits free speech and legal certainty by strentghening the current texts on DRM-tools and that it contains many provisions that are very unclear and leaves too much room of manouvre for the business itself and the court to decide and we all know who has most resources to put into a legal procedure.
I share your concerns and I will vote against ACTA

Thanks for your mail. As you may know, The Greens/EFA group is at the heart of the fight against ACTA. Acta threatens indeed fundamental rights of the European citizens. It also poses a serious threat to access to medicines, for the protection of biodiversity or the right for our farmers to freely seed. For now more than four years, the Greens/EFA ask for the rejection of ACTA.
