Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is. But the provision was only ratified in April, and won't become active until 2012.

And it's not a forced referendum or a demand for policy - it's a petition mechanism that asks the Commission to, like, think about stuff, if it wouldn't mind, and if it's not doing anything too taxing elsewhere.

Even so - it would make a terrific media campaign. And given current sentiments, I'd be surprised if it took anything like a year to get a million signatories supporting broad anti-bankster measures.
