ORG London February Pub Meetup - ACTA

Hashtag: #orgacta

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA, is a controversial trade agreement negotiated in secret by a handful of countries that seeks to establish international standards for intellectual property right enforcement.  

As the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea have already signed the agreement, we have turned our attention to the European Union as the last bastion of hope to stop the ascension of this dangerous agreement. In the EU, ACTA is being decided on a national level, and will soon make its way to the European Parliament for a final consent vote.

-- Access Now

This gathering will discuss what's wrong with ACTA, and how we can build a campaign to challenge it. There will be some discussion space, some space for activism, and some space for political lobbying training. There will also be access to alcohol - like every good meet up should.

We'll be having some great (expert) speakers on the subject, an opportunity to discuss ACTA and its problems, and a chance get more involved in ORG's actions and campaigns.
