Australijscy wystąpili z PPI
Początkowo PPI zgodziło się że 14 marca 2015 r. odbędzie się Walne Zgromadzenie PPI – ONLINE. Miało ono poprzedzić Walne Zgromadzenie PPI, które odbędzie się w Warszawie w pierwszy weekend lipca. Jednak posiedzenie zarządu, które odbyło się w dniu 8 lutego 2015 zmieniło ten ustalenia.
W konsekwencji Australijska Partia Piratów wysłała e-maila do PPI z rezygnacją w członkostwie. E-mail jest drukowany poniżej.
Dear members of PPI,
It is with a heavy heart I announce the resignation (termination of membership) of Pirate Party Australia from Pirate Parties International,effective immediately, as per a motion resolved unanimously by the National Council.
The Party no longer believes that there is any potential for reform left in PPI, and we have spent all of the energy we are willing to in pursuit of that end. This was compounded by the callous abuse of power and outright hostile culture of the PPI board which has been very clearly demonstrated over the last week.
However, building a new model for collaboration starts today.
Pirate Party Australia will continue to collaborate on international projects, and we invite those interested parties to consider their options. Pirate Party Australia will be working with the Icelandic
Pirate Party to conceive a Pirate journal project in association with the Pirate Times which should allow a more in-depth view of the Pirate way of thinking.
We are also preparing a shared resource portal for all Pirate Parties,
but it is of course very early days as we did not expect to be forced
into this position so suddenly.
It is intended that the wiki provided should be used as a common resource portal for Pirate Parties. Please do list your international contacts, available translators and any other resources your Party would be willing to share in order to support collaboration between Pirate Parties.
We have migrated our proposal for a collaborative organisation to the new, general international wiki. As we now no longer have the time constraints of the broken PPI statutes to deal with, we can slowly explore our future organisational options without pressure.
A temporary mailing list has been set up for the purpose of exploring future collaboration options. Shoot me an email if you’re interested and
I will add you.
Within a few weeks, we hope to have a Discourse instance up as well to provide a safe, relatively self-regulated meeting place to discuss Pirate issues, provide a meeting point for international collaboration and give us an opportunity to break with the past on a completely modern
Never forget that PPI is not the movement. It was meant to be a organisation to help Pirate Parties work together. In the end, we only ever did this in spite of PPI, not due to it.
You are also welcome to discuss this with us on our IRC network, PirateIRC, which has been a cooperative effort between several Pirate Parties for several years with no formal affiliation to PPI.
We look forward to you joining us in this exciting new opportunity for the Pirate movement.
(This email also serves as our notice to the board.)
