Ahead of the EP's Plenary vote, various organisations are supporting an Action Week, from 4 to 11 September, to encourage diverse communities to speak-up on how they are impacted by the copyright reform and the Article 13 #CensorshipMachine. Feel free to use the banner below to promote this effort on your site. Credits for the banner go to EDRi. Download a high-resolution version (1200x537 or 1200x309).
