I was invited (in Sep. 22!) to attend so-called "civil society groups meeting" or whatever today. It seems to be merely an one hour lunch break, the latest draft is not given beforehand for scrutiny at all, and E-J translators are not provided(thus many other Japanese activists can't join), so I figured this is basically more ceremonial than substantial discussion. Also, Sep. 23 is a national holiday, so many people take a 4-days off. Even I originally considered to take a vacation today.
Anywise, I'll be there and at least say ACTA has lost all legitimacy in any sense. What a shame.
