Raise Your Voice & Act Against Article 17 [ex Art. 13]:

Contact Your MEPs

When conveying your message, we encourage you to:

  • Be polite (legislators are humans too 🙂 ).
  • Make your message as personal as possible (e.g. by for example, sharing any bad experiences you have had with existing content filters on platforms such as YouTube, Facebook or Tumblr).
  • Make it real: when emailing them, add your real name and provide a working return email address.
  • Make it local: Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) also appreciate knowing that you are part of their constituency, so giving your postal code can make a difference. If you can, preferably write in the legislators’ language.

Contact Your Members of the European Parliament

Find below a contact list of all the MEPs as well as some tips on how you can address them. Click on ‘Act now – Write My MEPs’. See the methodology tab for more details on how the MEPs are categorized below.

Epicenter.works has created tools that allow you to call MEPs. Click on Act Now – Call My MEPs. Please note that this will open the Pledge2019.eu website.

The contact list below shows how your country’s MEPs voted on the Article 17 [ex Art. 13] #CensorshipMachine. This ranking is based on MEPs’ voting behaviour during the 12 September 2018 EP Plenary vote. A short explainer on how the MEPs are ranked:

  • MEPs in ‘Red’ – Supporting Article 17 [ex Art. 13]: These are the MEPs who voted against the Amendments proposing to delete Article 17 and against the alternative Article 17 Amendment from the European Parliament’s (EP) Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) Committee, which both ensured Article 17 would not impede our fundamental rights. Also marked in red, are these MEPs that abstained from voting on these Amendments, as they indirectly supported the majority that voted in favour of Article 17 on 12 September 2018.
  • MEPs in ‘Grey’ – No Track Record on Article 17 [ex Art. 13]: These are either:
    1. Absent MEPs, who were not present for the vote on the EP Amendments to delete Article 17 and the alternative IMCO Amendment. It remains important to raise awareness amongst these MEPs to encourage them to be present at the vote this time; or,
    2. New MEPs, who joined the EP after 12 September 2018. It remains important to raise awareness amongst these MEPs who only joined in the past months or even more recently, about the importance of this debate and the issues at stake.
  • MEPs in ‘Green’ – Against Article 17 [ex Art. 13]: These are the MEPs who voted in favour of the EP Amendments to delete Article 17 and/or in favour of the alternative IMCO Amendment.
  • MEPs in ‘Yellow’ – Pledged to Vote Against Article 17 [ex Art. 13]: These are the MEPs who pledged on the Pledge2019.eu website that they will vote against Article 17 and will keep upload filters out of the copyright reform.
