      ACTA is a bad international treaty that may affect many of us. Please sign the
      petition against it and help spread the word.

      A month ago, we published a statement against ACTA
      (http://www.fsf.org/campaigns/acta/acta-declaration) and asked for
      your signatures in support. Over 3,000 of you joined us in calling on
      ACTA negotiators to either dramatically change the agreement or drop
      it all together.

      We did this because ACTA attacks the rights of computer users
      (http://www.fsf.org/campaigns/acta/why-acta-declaration) around the
      world and threatens, in a disguised way, to punish Internet users with
      disconnection if they are accused of sharing. It also requires
      countries to prohibit software that can break Digital Restrictions
      Management (DRM), also known as digital handcuffs.

      Yesterday was the start of a week-long series of ACTA meetings in the
      US between country representatives. This makes now a key time to
      ensure our voices are heard. As Dr. Michael Geist said yesterday,
      "With the US on its home turf and having pushed for an accelerated
      schedule...the next week could decide the fate of ACTA."

      This Thursday, August 19th, we will be delivering the petition -- with your
      signatures -- to the ACTA negotiators.

      Thank you for signing! Please help spread the word so we can get as
      many signatures as possible before Thursday!

      God considered inflicting XSLT as the tenth plague of Egypt, but then
      decided against it because he thought it would be too evil.
