4 – Reports

4.1. – Short report of the board members

Oktavía Hrund Jónsdóttir (PPIS)
less productivity due to having influenza. Had several meetings among them:
Lux-pirates, Sven: He is ready to assist with the registration and we can use their address. He is sending paperwork for me to fill out
Follow up: I need the new statues as per the Prague meeting if possible with a copy in french. I suggest we made Sven a special representative for our bank account due to him living in Luxemburg. I will have a draft ready for the next meeting
meeting with representatives from Brussels - Gilles Bordelais - about the bank account in Brussels that is registered to him; there are some funds there a when its registered the money would be transfered to Luxembourgh
also have access to Twitter accounts, FB and webpage
membership fees - Bastian and Exile had some thoughts about that and we should discuss it the next meeting
hosting of webs - we could align everything under the organization's name and have the servers in Iceland?

Antigone (Gabrielle Nereuil PP-FR)
Read by Okta:
We had a great meeting with Citizen Movement in Paris and we have the feeling that we could build a common force with them for the European election. Our problem in France at the moment is that we will run the election on a national level : it means it cost more and we need more people ready to be candidate. A common alliance with other movement could help us to manage this challenge. It will not be a classical political alliance but more something like an archipelago where every island keep it identity and own program. Our challenge will be to find new form of cooperation but we are quiet enthousiastic.
About the PP: I just wait for the Ok of Marketa about the work-share and wish to send the questions about a common program to the other pirate parties before Christmas to hold a good planning until the elections
If she is ok with the proposal (planning, task, sharing of the work on geographical basis) then just let’s go for it :) [Markéta: ok :)]

Markéta Gregorová (PP-CZ)
in Brussels talking to Julia reda about “Pirate future” in the EP, which groups represent what opinions etc.; copyright reform
in Bratislava at an NDI meeting, networking quite a lot, made a lot of interesting connections, that might be of use to Pirates who will get into the EP (coalitions)
checked the Facebook page to which I have access to, have some suggestions [Okta asks for drafts to share with the working group; Markéta will do]

Bastian (Sebastian Krone, PP-DE)
Technical stuff - Websites, Wiki, mailing lists, Orga Board meeting, admin work
before hosting we have to discuss technical stuff, we need money for that; right now we are paying nothing for hosting etc.
hosting in Iceland is good because of the data protection there

Antonios Motakis (PP-GR)
excused

Ernst Spitaler (PP-AT)
informal chat with Exile and Tony, how we can improve communication between the PPEU members
tried to contact FVG Pirates (Friuli Venetia Giulia, a region in north eastern Italy, they have applied as members besides Italy), haven't heard from them yet
would like to have a feedback from non-participating members, to know their status and make strategies, how to reach those who are not active

Exile (Oliver Herzig, PP-DE, PP-CAT, PC-ES)
regarding elections for the catalan parlament - they are on thursday 21.12. - everybody here is looking forward to this. Result is still open … independent block is still near to majority. Myself involved in election campain (Pirata.cat is running with CUP (left wing anti capitalism party counting in the independent block))

The German worked on the logo for the elections to the europarlament 2019 - this is the logo they agreed on (perhaps this is for use for us): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y1jeMi_JE40oPPxEdRkacz36oqBeDH99/view

Hrafndís Bára Einarsdóttir (PP-IS)
: looked at contact lists of media outlets and journalists separated by country and good options for updating such a resource
: Together with action plans or to do lists/check lists for starting pirate parties locally and nationally in Europe and ideas in regards to contacts in general.

Mikuláš Peksa (PP-CZ)
started to looking for contacts for media
also in Brussels, discussed copyright and current digital market reform, we should look into it more and how to assist
shared press releases (for example about the Catalan elections) - coordinating them
[asks Bastian about cloud solutions - Bastian: I can send board members and everyone invitation to the nextcloud, where we can share materials etc]
