The scale of German protests was impressive!
Protests in Poland had far lower attendance - I was at the Warsaw protest and there were about 350 people here. Still, it was nice to see people of all political options rallying around a single issue.

If this was yesterday, then, in the UK, it would have clashed with Anti-Brexit rally in London.

I did email “my” MEPs about this already, but I didn’t threaten to vote them out, and I don’t think that is the way to go (even if you live in a non-failed state and will get to vote in May). It’s implicit anyway, but on an individual level it is a fairly hollow threat that makes you sound petulant and unserious. And the idea is to appeal to your representative’s sense of civic duty, not their narrow self-interest.

First thought, “cool Japanese protest sign in solidarity of EU internet freedom”, then sad realizing on closer look it’s tape on stick/sign. :face_with_monocle:

In Amsterdam I would guess we got 30 to 50 people. Could have been better :sweat:
