Open Parliament Petition

Postby linuxgirlie » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:39 pm

Not sure if this is posted elsewhere, but this petition should be signed by all of us in the UK and Europe. The blurb is:

Citizens and stakeholder groups should not have to use the software of a single company in order to communicate with their elected officials or participate in the legislative process.

All companies should be given the chance to compete freely for contracts to supply ICT services to the European Parliament.

I am a citizen of the EU, and I want the European Parliament to adopt the use of open standards and to promote interoperability in the ICT sector.

The petition can be found at:
