Dear friends,

As you know:

- Portugal is the first European country where web accessibility is
mandatory;

- On 8 December 1999 the European Commission launched an initiative entitled
"eEurope - An Information Society for All", which propose: "By the end of
2001: The European Commission and Member States should commit themselves to
making the design and content of all public Web sites accessible to people
with disabilities."

The eEurope plans are due to be definitively approved at a special EU
meeting on employment to be held in Lisbon, Portugal in March 2000

What you think about an online international Petition for the Accessibility
on the Internet in European Union supporting the European Commission
proposal ?

You can find an example at http://www.acessibilidade.net/eeurope

Regards
Francisco Godinho
Co-ordinator of the Petition for the Accessibility of the Portuguese
Internet.
