Discuss ACTA during Facebook chat with EP president Martin Schulz
25.04.2012, written by

Don’t miss your chance to discuss the controversial ACTA agreement with European Parliament president Martin Schulz during a chat on Facebook on 26 April from 1430 CET. The EP will soon be voting on an agreement defenders insist will help fight counterfeit goods and protect intellectual property but critics fear will violate civil liberties and curb internet freedoms. Are you for or against? Have your say during the Facebook chat on Thursday.

President Schulz will talk about the procedure for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement during the chat that starts at 1430 CET. People will have one hour to ask him questions. Parliament plays a vital role in ACTA as without its consent the agreement will not be able to enter into force in the EU.
