In consideration of Article 5 of Statutes in particular its paragraph a), d), e);
In consideration of the importance of facilitating the work of pirates at the European level and allowing everyone to participate;
The Board will have to present its list for the next Council meeting.
In consideration of Article 14 (6) which states that the Council may be convened by decision of the Board;
In consideration of the need to ensure the proper organization of Council meetings;
The Board is charged of developing an annual calendar of meetings of the European Pirate Party Council before the last day of February. - The Bureau elaborates this calendar in consultation with the members. It takes into account as much as possible the obligations of ordinary members (general assembly, elections, etc.). - This calendar is sent to all members by any means and is published on the website of the party. - The Board is free to modify the calendar after having collected the opinion of the ordinary members and under the condition that the next meeting is not held within four weeks following the modifications.
Council tasks Board to prepare proposal for change of the Statues for the next Council meeting. The proposal shall provide option to obtain membership including voting rights even to parties officially not bearing term “Pirate” in their name. However, the proposal should at least require such parties to bear the Pirate logo, in a visible manner along within the corresponding parties' logo, in any imminent European Parliament and/or National elections.
Council tasks Board to prepare proposal for change of the Statues for the next Council meeting. The proposal shall provide option to obtain membership including voting rights even to parties officially not bearing term “Pirate” in their name, as well as changes to the delegate system and the allotment of the amount of delegates per member, to ensure that Pirate parties do not find themselves in a minority in the Council. However, the proposal should at least require such parties to bear the Pirate logo, in a visible manner along within the corresponding parties' logo, in any imminent European Parliament and/or National elections.
Council approves postponement of the registration process until mandatory parliamentary representaion of the PPEU members is reached.
APPF requests the member parties to have influence on the respective European political party´s policies, including having voting rights. The current version of our Statues does not provide member party without term Pirates in their name an option to obtain full membership, while observer members are not allowed to vote. Concerning
the Council may consider Association robust enough to act as represantive of the Pirate movement in Europe, even though futher members are admitted. Unless further members are admitted, the registration process shall be postponed until further major electoral successes are reached.
We, members of the European Pirate Party, call upon pirate members of national parliaments, members of national delegations in the Council of Europe and members of the Pirate delegation in the European Parliament to further persist in favor of immediate response of all EU Member States, to comply with Directive (EU) 2019/1937, to build a secure and confidential environment within the European Union, for the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (whistleblowers).
Whistleblowers serve as an important source of information in today’s world, and they should not be prosecuted for publishing information that is vital to the public, as was the case with whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. No one should be punished for reporting wrongdoing by states or other organisations.
Julian Assange sacrificed his personal well-being and freedom for the benefit of society, and that, in our opinion, qualifies him to be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize. The process of nomination itself is relatively simple.
With this motion, we ask the Council for support in nominating Assange for the prize.
