ACTA protest day, February 11, 2012

Post edited 2012-02-12: more videos added and the reaction of Minister Verhagen has been given a post of its own, so it has been removed here. Bonus points if you can spot yours truly in any of the videos below.

I was at the protest in Amsterdam today and boy, was it ever cold! Still, it was good to be there, to hear the arguments, to speak with onlookers and wave at the many cameras pointed at us. Most of them were from tourists, but still. It was quite shocking to find out how little people knew about ACTA, if anything at all! Most had never heard about it until today.

Below is a collection of videos, articles and photos taken by various people who were at the many international protests today or by news media.
