  • Pirate Parties exist today in over 40 countries. The incorporation level differ from country to country - not all Pirate Parties can participate in public elections for example.
  • The current PPI web site.

  • The last conferences had mainly the scope for preparing and coordinating the strategies for the European Parliament elections.

  • International political organisations stand in the tradition of “far left” - first started by the Marxists. This explains, why there is a plethora of such organisations exists on the left wing - many of them still fighting for a world revolution and victory of the working class.
  • Today there are political internationals of all different couleur - also quite new ones. There are also notables are Socialist International and Alliance of Democrats
  • Come on, they have been founded in 2001 - and frankly, the website look very much like it was not changed in design ever since. Note how the top navigation spoils into the background :-)
  • So the scope of this organization is aimed at the green parties itself, not the world outside.

  • The structure is simple and sufficient, given that they have no real tasks beside of coordination.
  • Liberal International - Founded in 1947 - the major topics are liberalism and human rights.

  • They take organization matters seriously, with all that bodies. What they actually do is to held a summit every 3-4 years.

  • http://www.mypirates.net/ppi_development - Request to Join, and we let you in. So far Pirates from 13 countries collaborate in the Task Force, about half of them are from Germany
  • The other “PPI” - The “Professionals Party of India” actually looks from there Homepage as if they could join the Pirate Movement - look at the all the social media links in the left hand navigation!

  • This question bring up the following one - how the votes should be counted? Right now the strongest suggestion is, that every country should get one vote, regardless of how many members come from this country.

  • This is were the opinions divide right now - while some would like to see a political active organization that address the issues on the global level - like ACTA, INDECT, SWIFT, etc.;
    while others would see an organization that “just” coordinates between the member Pirate Parties as sufficient.

    The goal of the Task Force is to create the two different proposals and take them to the conference in April, so that they can be voted upon from different parties.

  • While every Party is independent in its decisions, there is possible under some circumstances to make the membership in the ppi dependent on the agreement to some common goals and statements.
  • ...And of cause you can post this Presentation to your favorite Pirate Forum, you can tweet about it, blog, write on your page in Facebook, etc.
