Today, the European Parliament rejected the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) in a 478 to 39 vote with 165 abstentions.

Before the vote the European People’s Party requested a vote on postponement of the vote. The Parliament rejected postponement in a 420 to 255 vote with 9 abstentions.

yay.gif So much for trying to curb freedom of expression. Bet this bill will resurrect under some other acronym though.

There's more than 39 in the States that voted for drones and indefinite detention for US citizens guilty of nothing. 13.gif

Quote:The EPP's key ACTA advocate, Christofer Fjellner (EPP, SE), asked before the vote that Parliament should delay its final vote until the European Court of Justice has ruled on whether ACTA is compatible with the EU treaties. However, when a majority of MEPs rejected this request, a substantial minority responded by abstaining in the vote on Parliament's consent

Even though the above link is a news article on the EU Parliament website, still no easy link to the list of Politicians who votedwtf2.gif

In looking for info on the vote, I downloaded from EU site
Quote:The motions for resolutions and reports tabled by Members and by the parliamentary committees are put to the vote in plenary, with or without a debate. After the vote, the final texts as adopted are published and forwarded to the authorities concerned.

For Yesterday alone it was a 95 page docwtf2.gif

Just one of the things at the start I found

Quote:P7_TA-PROV(2012)0270
Single European railway area ***II
(A7-0196/2012 - Rapporteur: Debora Serracchiani)

I agree, the flag isn't neatly pressed and starched.
