  Dear friends
  
  The Portuguese Minister of Science and Technology agreed with PASIG proposal
  of inclusion of accessibility on the Internet for people with disabilities
  in the European Ministerial conference for the Information Society .
  
  This means that there is no need to begin the International Petition for the
  Accessibility on the Internet in European Union.
  
  However, the European conference agenda is not defined and will be
  co-organized with the Portuguese presidency of the European Union and the
  European Commission. So, to make this proposal a reality
  will be necessary an International support.
  
  As soon as possible I will ask you this support
  
  Thanks in advance
