Wednesday November 4 there will be a series of consecutive meetings held in the European Parliament about the telecom package. From the notice sent out by the Conciliation Secretariat:

19h00: Delegation meeting
20h00: Trilogue
21h00: Conciliation Committee

The proceedings on 4 November will start with the meetings of both Parliament’s and Council’s delegations to the Conciliation Committee at 19h00.

Then a trilogue will take place at 20h00, at which Parliament will be represented by its negotiating team (Mr. Vidal-Quadras, Mr. Reul and Ms Trautmann), the Council will be represented by Minister Torstensson and Commissioner Reding will represent the Commission.

The negotiating team will report back to Parliament’s delegation on the outcome of this trilogue. Depending on the result of the negotiations, this will be followed by either another trilogue or the Conciliation Committee.

Read the full notice from the Conciliation Secretariat:.

Big night, in other words.

  1. So nice to see that you will get a whole hour to discuss this so you have plenty of time to reflect on the new text that someone will blur out, a text that will be law in EU and potentially will remove a lot of our rights of free speech.

  2. What’s this? And how did it end up in the Agenda?

    ”Further procedure

    At the beginning of the meeting of the Conciliation Committee a different file (report Staes; Pesticide Statistics) will be adopted as an A-point without exchange of views.”

  3. Or ”on the Agenda”.

    Anyway, this is apparently the formal opening of the conciliation procedure meaning the clock starts ticking.

    Don’t expect the Council to move one inch your way this time. That will perhaps happen later.

    As long as the text does not mention particular exemptions, this cut-off of end users may be for any reason including mailing, blogging, or podcasting. Yet the text should not mention exemptions. It should be short, simple and covering all internet activities.

  4. I SvD: Ökat polissamarbete med USA (http://www.svd.se/nyheter/politik/euvalet2009/artikel_3726145.svd) hittade jag detta:
    ”Missbruket av internet för att sprida våldsamma och radikala budskap är ett oroväckande fenomen som vi måste överväga i ett sammanhang av juridiska restriktioner och operativa behov”, står det i deklarationen.

    Det verkar inte bara vara upphovsrättsindustrin som vill kunna stänga av folk utan prövning…

  5. Minister Torstensson, som här representerar ministerrådet talar tydligen med kluven tunga.

    ”90 procent av hushållen ska ha 100 Mbit/s”
    http://www.newsmill.se/artikel/2009/11/02/hela-sverige-ska-ha-bredband-i-varldsklass#comment-110177

    När alla frihetskränkande lagar och direktiv Minister Torstensson verkar för, är införda finns inget kvar att använda farten till. När nöjesbranschen mutat in sitt revir blir underhållning för dyrt. Bloggar, communities och information går inte att nå för de är med i ett annat paketerbjudande.

    När man klickar på länken i artikeln till regeringens »bredbandsstrategi« hänvisas man till en sida på http://www.regeringen.se/bredband/ där man får läsa ett meddelande att »Sidan finns inte«. Detta säger allt om såväl regeringen som Minister Torstensson….

    Men det är klart… FRA och all datalagring behöver kanske kapaciteten….

    Att internet blivit en succé beror ju på att politiker hållit sig borta. Att allt nu ska regleras kommer att urholka Internets potential.

  6. Take your camera with you! So that citizens of Europe can have a nice ”report”.

  7. I agree with zoobab, why not get all this on tape so we can really see what happens.

  8. ”What’s this? And how did it end up in the Agenda?”
    For a change, it’s not something sinister. An ”A” point is something which has been discussed and agreed but just needs to be formally signed off.

    Kommentar av Justme — 4 november 2009 @ 18:26

  9. @Justme:

    Yeah, EXACTLY as the ”agreed upon” mandate to the Commission to enter into ACTA negotiations by the ministers of agriculture and fisheries.

    A-points should be dispensed with. There is no such thing as ”formally signed off”. Either you take part in a decision, then you are responsible and should be aware of what you are deciding. Or you entrust those who actually ”agree” on things with the power to decide for themselves. Then they are responsible.

  10. Minister Torstensson said today in Swedish Television that we need to find a text that is acceptable to all countries. But they never specify exactly what the problem is, do they? That’s what’s bugging me. Swedish Minister of Justice Ask said today that a problem with the ACTA negotiations is the lack of transparency and she would welcome a fierce public debate instead. The same logic applies here. Representatives of the member states, be open, make it clear what the problem is, and let us find a solution.

    Good appearance of MEP Engström in Swedish Television today.
