ACTA - email the INTA Committee!  
The next committee vote on ACTA is said to be on the 21st. This committee as far as I know will then write a recommendation on what to do with ACTA for the full vote in July. ACTA has been rejected by four other committees. This one - the International Trade Committee - is important.

Go here: This has website has a link to the list of the delegates that will be voting on ACTA - email them and let them know we want them to reject it!

There are sample letters for both European citizens and non European citizens. No matter where you live, you can make your voice heard. I typed up my own and sent it to them.

The usual lobbying suspects are apparently still pressing them to pass it - there's even a rumor now that they may try to have a secret ballot when they officially vote on it in July. See Techdirt. for more.....

There are no words for how scary or infuriating this is. Thanks for your continued heads-up posts.

Thanks. I've been keeping track now on a regular basis. Thankfully,the INTA Committee also voted to reject ACTA, so all of the Committees across the board have rejected it. The full vote is supposed to be between July 3-5, so it's coming up soon. I think the major thing now is if the "speshal" interests and their paid politicians can convince them to delay it, instead of kill it dead.

Here's hoping for kill it dead!
