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 is still the best thing that could happen to the European Union.

The procedure:

europarl.europa.eu/oeil/popups)

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, 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.

@Kangar00 I am afraid the second part never happens in most cases :(

Venting off like this makes one vulnerable to "but you said X Y Z" discrediting attack.

@saper on the other hand, getting a strong reaction out might be the first step to take action. Not for everybody by a long shot.

I agree that venting instead of taking action doesn't help. But venting to kick yourself into action, I'm all for that.
