Hello everyone,

As a part of the wider work that we're all doing on advocacy, Wikimedia UK has put together a letter to UK MEPs calling on them to support changes to copyright. The letter covers the three areas of interest of the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU:

We've used illustrated examples in the text. We plan to send this out to all 73 UK MEPs within the next couple of days, both by email and by post.

Do let me know if you have any thoughts. 

Thanks and regards,
