ACT on ACTA say NO

Greens/EFA MEPs demonstrated today against ACTA (The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) in Strasbourg as pressure builds on the European Parliament to take action. The Group has long campaigned on the agreement, alarmed at the lack of transparency surrounding negotiations and will do everything it can in the coming weeks to convince MEPs from other groups to reject ACTA. In light of the growing public pressure and anger, a number of EU member states are now having second thoughts about proceeding with ratification. We need your support to convince the other members of the European Parliament to reject this deal. It is time to increase the pressure inside and outside the Parliament. Tell your MEPs Say No to ACTA!
