For everybody disappointed with today result in the European Parliament on A8-0245/2018 aka as Voss report on copyright reform please note:
1. The thing is not over yet
2. A lot can be done lobbying your local government
3. Just repeating buzzwords does not work
4. Use this opportunity to learn it all works: co-decision procedure, voting list, amendments ...
... because #EuParl is still the best thing that could happen to the European Union.
Look at at the documents at the bottom. There are contributions from national parliaments as well.
Just saying "fuck the eu" is not going to make anything better.
@saper No. I was born in Britain and live in Prague. I recently opted for Irish (and thereby European) citizenship and though I can see all the faults of the European Union, I do not look forward to seeing either Britain or the V4 countries without it.
@saper no, but it helps to get the frustration out. Screaming FU.
And then rolling up the sleeves, popping the knuckles and going in for another round of calls to MP, local politicians. Going for another rally against the crazy directives which don't change anything for the better for normal people.
@Dekken It is not published yet as far as I know.
Some amendments were voted with names, so we should know some details.
I think it should be posted here soon:
(under Monday, 10 September 2018 - Thursday, 13 September 2018 Strasbourg)
@Dekken It is a bit like learning what is BitTorrent, how it works and how to use it. It is pretty strange, inconvenient and convoluted, but one needs to learn if one wants to get things down- or uploaded.
There is some story behind the software that could be used to manage legal text + amendments (at4am) - it even got kind of released as a free software but meh
@Dekken There where hundreds of amendments being processed today. See the voting list I have posted earlier.
A8-0245/2018 - Axel Voss -
