Dear Pirates,

I'm happy to announce the second international meeting of the pirate parties now for the 26./27.1.2008 ! Although our voting proposal on didnt result in the perfect choice for everyone, we hope for your understanding that we chose the date, that seems most suitable and was preferred by the most people. We hope that the countries which disagreed with that date will find a representative, that is able to attend the meeting. Most of the organizing will be published on the mentioned Wiki-Page. On the same weekend the election takes place, where our regional chapter of Hesse runs for! Nevertheless we hope to stem both the election campaign and the Conference.

Please direct your questions regarding the conference to Jan Huwald or myself.

best regards, Jens -- Jens Seipenbusch chairman Piratenpartei Deutschland
