4.1 - Short         report of the board members



  • Andrew: Contacted Nigerian PP to  join the New Parties group and tried to contact the Phillipine one but having trouble with their email. Started a new loomio group for conferences. Wrote an article for the Pirate Times asking for people to join the loomio groups and it has had some success.        



  • Chems: Contacts with refugies & for COP21



  • Henrique: we had contact with David Miranda (Glenn Greenwald's partner)about the IUF  and he asked  PPI to join their project called Snowden Treaty. the launch will be in the U.S. (location is not set yet)

         many influential people already joined and I think this is a great opportunity for us.

I've been in touch with several pirates from many countries lately. also tried contact with Philippine pirates but n reply yet.


  • Karla:  Question about bank account in Luxemburg. And software to keep finances, any preference? Is there a need for continuity?         



  • Min:          



  • Patrick: Contact to Gordon Thomas of Piratenshop was successfully. He has gained help for translating the german shop texts into english in the next weeks. He will also be the one, setting up the infrastructure. Bank account: Koen, Josef Collentine, Karla and I held a meeting concerning the further ongoing about the bank account. Josef and Koen are getting things done which needs to be done (signature of swedish pirate).
