The blind petition the European Parliament for braille access to books (tnx D. Hammerstein). Monday 3rd of October 15-18.30 (Petition will be heard and debated at aprox. 15:15-15:30)
Place: Room A3G3, Altiero Spinelli Building.
On Monday, October 3, the European Blind Union (EBU) defends the right to read for blind and visually impaired people in its petition before the European Parliament’s Petition Committee. The EBU have long called for an international binding treaty at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) to remove copyright barriers which prevents print disabled people from having access to books in braille, large print or audio. The EBU will ask the Commission to stop opposing the treaty and help put an end to the discrimination against millions of print disabled people who wish to read.
