'We will take this fight to plenary and still hope to #SaveYourInternet'

'Some are blaming the EU for the vote for #UploadFilters and #LinkTax, but don’t be fooled: Anti-EU politicians like #ENF voted in favour of both articles! Without them, the Link Tax would have been rejected. Now help me #FixCopyright in the plenary vote in July'
