Hello All, 

just to bring the pirate public the stand of Croatian Pirate Party.

As some of you know we are in the middle of campaign for EU election.

In between other pirate stuff ,we do promote seculars stands in our program.

The post on Facebook invited people to paint a pirate party Croatia symbol
on the egg. The best egg, with the best painting was send to Croatian

This could be more seen as a protest and sarcasm	then anything else.

Mr. Aleksander, should quote as a whole, so that the reader gets the complete
picture. Taking something out of the context is not a good move when you 
are accusing someone.

Furthermore, the ban on our FB page was issued to him by one of our administrators, 
following  the strict rules ,any question	in that regard, should be addressed to our
Court of Honor and not the the general public of PPI.

Mr. Aleksander is welcome to do so, by sending a formal complaint.

With kind regards,
Dario Vidovic

Pirate party Croatia, 
International coordination.
