EU space code of conduct: The solution to space debris?

Or just another excuse for demanding bribes.

NASA, DoD and the US communications satellite companies do not appear to be pushing for the treaty.

US Congress passes law to that effect:

Quote from: Michael Listner
Last week, the House of Representatives debated H.R.4310, the Defense Department authorization act for fiscal year 2013. The bill contains a provision concerning the implementation of a code of conduct for outer space activities. Specifically, Section 913 prohibits the Department of Defense from uses funds to implement an international agreement on space activities that has not been ratified by the Senate or otherwise authorized by federal statute.

Another article by Listner:

For a contrasting opinion from the Council on Foreign Relations:

Here is: a link to the actual EU Code of Conduct for Outer Space Activities.

And: the nastygram to President Obama from the Congressmen.

Hi there
I'm Cath - based in London, working on a project about space debris.
I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can reach out to any Amateur Astronomy Groups (preferably in Europe because of expense to get to the USA), where people may be tracking debris from their own telescopes.
Any help be much appreciated.
Best
Cath
