La Vista Baby: ACTA rejected by EU Parliament committees in crucial vote — RT -
May 31, 2012
"The European Parliament has opposed the controversial ACTA treaty, after three of its influential committees said the trade agreement should be rejected. The Legal Affairs Committee (JURI), the Committee for Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) and the Committee for Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) all voted against implementing the agreement, which caused mass protests in several European countries this year. In ITRE, the votes were split 31 members for and 12 votes against a draft opinion which called on the Parliament to reject ACTA. One member abstained. In JURI, 10 votes were cast for a pro-ACTA draft opinion and 12 against, while two committee members abstained. The small-margin victory still went to opponents of the treaty." -
