4.1 - Short report of the board members

  • Andrew: Members fees we now have 131,02 €. I met with Guy Standing the author of the Precariat and discussed ways that PPI and BIEN could work together - If we agree to explore avenues then I will open discussions. I have been in contact with the Icelandic Party and want to explore ways we can help them. I organised for Smári McCarthy to be interviewed on a New Zealand high end radio program this weekend.
  • Chems: -
  • Henrique: -
  • Karla: -
  • Min: -
  • Patrick: I was one week in Belgrad, Serbia and had contact with several activists from local parties and journalists. We've met a guy, starting a party called "Internet Party" (yes, like the one in NZ), who wants to be part of the pirate movement. Jelena and me are helping him to send in the application for the upcoming GA. I gave two interviews to local media. Further I worked on some designs for t-shirts and merchandise products for the future PPI shop. And I talked to Koen about the actual situation with the bank account. He still needs signatures from Jerry Weyer, Gregory and Nicolas. I wrote an email to Birgitta with information about the next GA and several questions, how we can work together. I didn't received the login data for the webspace of future PPI website, so i am going to organize webspace somewhere else myself.
  • Richard: I have drafted a submission to ITU, it is at: or

== 5 - Proposal No. 1 That we open a discussion group(s) in Loomio to enable motions, membership applications and canditatures to be discussed and voted upon(?) in the lead up to the GA. At request from Bastian the privacy settings were changed to default open

Yes: Richard, cbj,Min, Patrick,Andrew

== 7 - Request from dr. Matthijs Pontier Crowdsourcing an EU-constitution Details are in loomio If we want to support this what can we do and maybe this is more for PPEU?

+42 with mediawiki or etherpad ? we had the same experience in tunisia but all iniciatives was infiltred by parties and it was not a success for crowdsourced constitution :/

Matthiis will organise with Pakki a meeting to further the project
Thomas will send further email addresses of PPEU to Matthijs to spread the idea.

== 8 - That we approach BIEN to look at forming an association that is acceptable to both parties. Details are in loomio

Yes: cbj, Patrick, Andrew, Richard


== 9 - Iceland How can we help? We can ask for a person to be a go between 

Pattrick might fly there to meet with them social media support crowd funding to send people over Patrick, Jelena and Andrew will contact people there
