In this open letter civil society organisations and workers organisations, including AK EUROPA, are requesting from Executive Vice-President Vestager and Commissioner Breton urgent improvements to the transparency of the trilogue negotiations of the Digital Markets Act and the Digital Services Act.


The Digital Services pack has been the target of intense lobbying since the onset, especially by Big Tech firms and its intermediaries. Civil society organisations and citizens cannot match the resources spent and the access gained by Big Tech. Therefore, secrecy of policy making only further intensifies this unequal playing field, shutting citizens off from crucial discussions that will have an impact on their lives.
