Hello Pirates,

Some weeks ago the Pirate Parties International was founded in Brussels with
the aim to help the Pirate Parties all over the world. The PPI can become an
important tool to promote your Pirate Party. However to accomplish that
objective, we need your help!

We have set up several task forces, each with its own objective. You will
find a list of the task forces and a summary of their aims at the end of
this mail and on https://www.mypirates.net/ppi_network. More information can
also be found on the PPI wiki pages on http://int.piratenpartei.de/Main_Page

We use a connection of MyPirates and the PPI wiki for working in the task
forces. The wiki pages are used for presenting the results of the task
forces while the actual work is done on the different MyPirates pages.

The advantage of using MyPirates over mailing lists, forums and wikis is
that the platform allows everyone to participate (no need to be manually
added to a mailinglist), allows for different forms of user created content
(discussions, wiki pages, polls, surveys etc.) and is public and transparent
(no need to google for mailinglist archives, no hidden PiratePads etc.).

We would like you to forward this mail to your local communication channels
and promote the task forces. Only with the help of the Pirates from all over
the world we can take the international cooperation to the next level!


the Board of the PPI

List of the taskforces:

*IT/Website task force*
*Contact person:* Aleksandar
Main goal of tech taskforce is coordinate and distribute work in order to
maintain and keep all international pirate websites up and running. Existing
pirate framework is more than sufficient at this point of time, so very next
goal is to encourage pirates to use them, produce and share information.

*Contact person:* Jerry/Gregory
The objective of the conference and event planning taskforce is to plan the
next PPI conference and other PPI events. The first questions to discuss
will be the "when" and "where" of the next PPI conference, followed by the
actual planning with the help of the host Pirate Party.

*"New parties" task force*
*Contact person: Gregory*
The objective of the "new parties" task force is to give aid and help
emerging new pirate parties. This includes consulting on organizational
structures, information technology, press  relation and activism. One of the
first goals is to create a "toolbox" for starting a pirate party. The next
step would be to reach out and found new parties where one is missing.
