Please Sign This - One million for Disability

Every now and then, some iniative for disabled people like me is started. This is one of those times. This is what it's about:
Citizens have a say in Europe
Let’s use this opportunity to raise our voices!

The signature campaign aims to collect at least 1 000 000 citizens’ signatures to combat discrimination in all aspects of the lives of disabled citizens in Europe.

The European Union must respond to the call of at least 1 million citizens. This is stated in the draft European Union Constitutional Treaty. We must not miss this opportunity to raise our voices.

The campaign “One million for Disability” runs from 23 January to 3 October 2007

On 4 October 2007, the signatures will be officially handed out to the European Commission and the European Parliament. At the same time, a gathering of disabled persons, their families, friends and allies will take place in Brussels, in the heart of the European Institutions area.

So I know most of you aren't disabled, but please SIGN the thing. I will be glad!

With love,

I signed! ;)
But I didn´t find the place where you can read everyone´s signature. Is there any at all?
