Sign our letter
Writing your own letter has a lot of problems – it takes a lot of time and effort, and when you do send it you probably won’t even get a reply; after all, you’re only one person. So why not sign our letter instead (or as well!)? Our brief letter is shown below – to sign it just leave a comment below. Make sure you leave your real name and whether or not you’re a British citizen – other than that you can write whatever you want – and when we’ve collected enough we’ll get them printed onto some huge paper and send them to Mandelson – let’s see him try to ignore that!
Dear Lord Mandelson,
We the undersigned are writing to you to express our dissatisfaction with your proposed Digital Economy Bill.
We are not pirates. We do not support the theft of copyrighted information. We do not oppose the content industry. We are concerned internet users who are worried by your plans to disconnect subscribers without a trial, worried by your intention to label people guilty based on mere accusations, and worried by the speed with which you give in to the media at the expense of your constituents.
The bill you sponsor is an embarrassment to this country and to the legal principles pioneered here in 1215, and we want to make it clear that we do not and will not support it.
