Yes, there are this number of votes so far and now the target is 3m!!!This is part of a newsletter I got about the petition and the action surrounding it......
Politicians across Europe are starting to withdraw their support from the dangerous ACTA treaty. This weekend's mass protest is our moment to bury ACTA for good. Click to join the day of action, in person or virtually -- let's win this!
In 24 hours, people across the planet are joining a global street protest to bury ACTA for good.
This week our massive 2 million ACTA petition caused shockwaves in Brussels,
and we've just learned that Germany has put ACTA on ice
and other governments are close to following suit. If Europe says no to ACTA, it dies! We're at a tipping point
-- If enough of us join the protest tomorrow, we can secure our online freedom and end the threat of ACTA's censorship nightmare. Let's turn out in thousands to protest
or, if we can't be there in person (most of the protests are in Europe), send messages of solidarity to our fellow citizens who are marching.

Our massive ACTA petition was personally delivered to leading EU politicians in Brussels this week
as it grew to 2.2 million signers and beyond. The European Parliament is choosing their new point person on the treaty right now. Let's make sure that person realises that ACTA is too hot to handle. Four Eastern European governments and now Germany have just said they'll stall their decision
on the treaty. Now, if hundreds of thousands of people attend thousands of rallies all across Europe tomorrow, we can ensure that all politicians across the 27 EU countries are put on notice that people don't want ACTA
and will continue to take action until the treaty is buried.
Those of us in Europe can join the protests. And we all can send messages of solidarity to encourage the people there and use social media to pile the pressure on key parliamentarian.
