Tomorrow, Monday 4 June 2012, the European Parliament Development committee 
will vote on ACTA. The committee’s Rapporteur’s draft opinion proposes to 
advise the Parliament to adopt ACTA. Committee Members tabled amendments to 
change this conclusion. See our May 7 letter to the DEVE committee. The vote 
will be at around 17.30, Central European Summer Time. Today, the FFII sent a 
short letter to the committee.

On June 19 the Committee on Petitions (PETI) will hold a hearing with the 
petitioners of the ACTA petitions. On 20 June, the International Trade 
committee will vote on the final report. The committees’ opinions and the INTA 
report are not binding. The plenary vote, that will decide ACTA’s faith in 
about 20 seconds, will be on July 3 (to be confirmed).

Our short letter to the Development committee:


Germany advises developing countries against signing ACTA

Dear Members of the Committee on Development,

Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development advises 
developing countries against signing the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement 
(ACTA). [1] See also our May 7 letter to the DEVE committee. [2]

We call upon you to propose to reject ACTA.

Yours sincerely,

Ante Wessels
