Joint press release by 41 European and International organisation to
invite Members of the INTA committee to fully reject ACTA
INTA Committee Must Reject ACTA
publié en ligne : 20 juin 2012

ACTA threatens fundamental freedoms online, Net neutrality, innovation,
access to free/libre technologies and to essential medicines. The
European Parliament has all the evidence needed to reject it, and if it
were to postpone the final vote on the agreement it would be seen as
escaping its political responsibility.

On Thursday, June 21st, Members of the International Trade (INTA)
committee of the EU Parliament will issue their final recommendation on
ACTA to the rest of the Parliament.

So far all committees have called for the rejection of ACTA. We urge the
INTA members to do the same, and vote against any amendment calling for
the adoption of ACTA or for postponing the final vote of the Parliament.
Delaying the vote is a deceptive stratagem that the EU Commission and
industry lobbies have been pushing for weeks in order to save face.

Members of the EU Parliament must take on their political duty and
protect citizens against this dangerous agreement. It is more than
urgent to break away from ACTA’s repressive logic, and make the
fundamental policy distinction between real, harmful counterfeiting of
physical goods and the sharing practices that are the building blocks
for our culture and for a better society.
