Dear Manon, dear all,

Spanish civil society is the "maker" of this rejection. Only the huge reaction of the 
civil society during one year have changed the response of the deputies which were 
happilly willing to accept the orders of the US embassy.

You can see more details here:
The national citizen platform create against it:

The last actions (sorry only spanish):
(englsh on fight against 301):

*Important now:*
They are trying to put back the law in the senate on the 24 of February through a 
"marriage" government+opposition. Everybody together against citizens.
We are fighting back.
A support from Us civil society to the very conscious spanish people (over 300 000 signing 
the manifest against the law) will be very welcome.

All the best to all of you and keep up the good work, the light and justice
