EU seizes medicines! We seize EU!

Do you know that the European Commission seized generic HIV medicines on their way from India to Africa, leaving thousands without their medicines?

Do you know that the EU is aggressively pursuing a Free Trade Agreement with India that will prevent generic ARVs from being produced and exported from India - the main source of HIV medicines for the developing world?

Do you know that the EU is in secret negotiations with the US and other countries on an Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) that includes higher intellectual property protection and threatens import and export of generic HIV medicines?

We know! And we took over their booth to protest them.
