No EPP Coup to Delay ACTA

Filed under: ACTA,English — Christian Engström @ 16:49

The agenda of the European Parliament for this week has just been adopted without any incidents.

The will be a debate on ACTA on Tuesday, and the deciding vote on Wednesday.

We had received information that there was a risk that the big Conservative group EPP would try to get ACTA off the agenda by raising a point of order today, but this did not happen.

We don’t know why they didn’t try, but it is possible that the attention the issue got over the weekend helped avert their attempt.

  1. This might be good news but, i can’t help feeling that they *might* try something tomorrow or on wednesday. Let’s hope not.

  3. Hi Christian,

    unfortunately the EPP Group @EPPGroup announced on Monday evening 7:00 pm via Twitter:

    ”#EPP will ask during tomorrow’s debate on #ACTA for a postponement of the vote until we have ECJ’s ruling.” https://twitter.com/EPPGroup/status/219837848587747328

    I don’t understand why they can’t simply adpot a POLITICAL opinion and vote on Wednesday. These tricks are really make me angry!

    Greetz from Hamburg and good luck defeating ACTA this week
