Most of us had the feeling something was wrong in their country politic
class, but did not knew what to do. The fight for civil liberties, change in
the copyright legislation and privacy was truly mostly the NGO field, with
many small groups fighting for the same objective. The Swedish PP set the
example on how can we take the fight on another level, and some of us acted
since a couple of years ago. Maybe the PPI has not evolved into what should
be, but the steps taken until now are more than honorable. Some of you took
it personal when it was said that a PP should target its voters, but we all
must understand that the pirates as a political movement are more that just
their ideals. We have stepped into a dogs world and we should follow some
rules before bringing down the establishment.
The Swedish PP and the German PP has shown the way. I would appreciate more
technical details and even help from them, for the parties already
established or just starting. Their experience is invaluable for us. What
they will do with the knowledge aquired ... (to be completed by them :) )
For the PPI to exist, the wiki will also be a extraordinary help, and real
links between members of the parties will aid more.
Let's take Romania example: for every news article about Swedish PP and
German PP we win more members. So they are helping us without doing much.
(As a sidenote: all pirate making declarations to the press, please transmit
throug the reporter the call for people to join their national PP's. It
helps alot.) Of course, at some point we will finish the legal proceedings
and register as a party. Then, the biggest help we could get then will be a
visit here form some proeminent members of other parties. The same could
work for other parties.
