The Wellington Declaration agreed by yesterday's PublicACTA Conference has now been released, and video coverage of the event will be made available as soon as possible.

The Declaration can be found at: http://www.publicacta.org.nz/ and members of the public can find a link to a petition where they can sign their support of the declaration.

"I urge everyone interested in protecting their digital rights online to sign this petition and endorse the Wellington Declaration," says Jordan Carter, a spokesperson for PublicACTA.

"The Wellington Declaration paints a broad picture of the need to limit ACTA to what it originally set out to do: tackle the problem of counterfeiting.

"It also makes some specific suggestions as to how the detailed provisions being negotiated in Wellington next week - that go far beyond counterfeiting - can be made more citizen-friendly.

"PublicACTA had over 100 people in attendance, and hundreds more observing the proceedings through a live video feed from many countries around the world. Keynote speakers included Professor Michael Geist from Canada, and Kimberlee Weatherall from Australia.

"The Declaration is a substantive and serious call on Governments to change their approach to ACTA.

"I hope they heed it," concludes Carter.

It was a really good day, and insanely well organized.  I've signed the declaration, and I sincerely hope that everyone here reads it, and if they agree, sign as well.

Done! I agree that it's very important and it's good to see over 1200 signatures so far.
