Monthly Meetings for International Coordination and Activism!

Hello Pirates!

As you will recall if you were at the last PPI General Assembly back in April, there was a discussion about how we really need to meet more regularly. It’s nice to have GAs once in a while, but they’re really not useful when it comes to doing activism together. We need to have regular meetings in order to be able to plan effective campaigns, actions and events.

So…let’s make it happen! PPI would like to start bringing together international coordinators and representatives from both members and non-member parties, as well as individuals interested in Pirate Activism, at least once per month. What we do is completely up to you. There are a few things we have in mind, such as international support for Pirate Parties during election time—several countries have elections in the coming months, such as Germany and Norway, to name a couple. There’s also unified global actions and campaigns around specific issues of our choosing, like mass surveillance or net neutrality. These meetings will also be good opportunities to give regular reports on what Pirates are up to in various countries, including strategy discussions and in general, helping and learning from each other.

The possibilities are endless, and where we go will depend entirely on where YOU want to steer the ship.

These meetings will be separate from PPI board meetings and general assemblies, less formal, and allow for plenty of creative freedom. We are not meeting to discuss the wording of statute #9001 or to discuss statutes at all, for that matter…we are meeting to have fun, to learn from each other, and to make interesting, important things happen. We are meeting to build unity in our movement, in a time where unity is more desperately needed than ever.

We will start by meeting on Mumble, and if we find a better tool in the future we can always switch if we want to. Timezones make international meetings tricky to schedule, so it may be a good idea to rotate between a few different meeting times…but for now, we would like to ask you for feedback on when to hold this very first meeting, during which we will collectively establish our procedures going forward.

NEXT MEETING: Sunday August 27th at 16:00 CEST
