Antonios Motakis (PP-GR)
skipped

Ernst Spitaler (PP-AT)
- maybe the intl. coordinators meeting shouldn't be just a one-time meeting and we should create it as a kind of “unit” within the PPEU so that people know whom to ask for help- by - - by the next meeting start common talks, so that we have something to propose

skipped

Exile (Oliver Herzig, PP-DE, PP-CAT, PC-ES)

Exile: The proposal for a meeting is a good idea. Also happy with the proposal of Muriel - to update the CEEP 2014. And the other points shouldn't be our main focus because the agreement might be hard.
Antigone: agrees, now it is kinda passive; when should we organize it?
Markéta: I propose July or August because of our Czech deadline in September
Bastian: Yes to all, but physical meetings are expensive for somebody
Antigone: two meetings, end of July and second in August

the EU Parliament has some thoughts about putting up a threshold to make entering the Parliament more difficult. It would violate some established ethical rules and probably only get set up for 2024, someone might try to use an angle to still slip it in for 2019, but there are also preparations for legal counteraction underway. According to Bastian it is quite improbable that it will already happen in 2019

Proposed locations to have a physical meeting:

Prague - (good experience from council meeting :) ), a good base with experienced (and paid) people, reachable, not that expensive, the greatest amount of participating people in program groups are Czechs
Cologne
Frankfurt, good connection, good presence of pirate, cheap hostel
Barcelona (good conected, pirates active, not sure about man power)
Kassel, no airport - might have the option for gratis location to work
Brussels - EP office might help with the costs coverage, the center of the EP, for which we are creating the CEEP :)
Berlin/Potsdam
Wroclaw (no pirates (Zbigniew)? - but would be something new)
Stockholm
Bratislava - good connection to the central europe, really cheap(hostel and food), accessible via plane easily, active and enthusiastic Pirates, would boost them in gathering signatures for their registration, we, the Czech Pirates, can easily help them with organization and are already experienced in that
Vienna - in the center of Europe, accessible, expensive (pirate team is very small and no idea if we manage something of this scale)
Helsinki (really expensive….but it would give a boost to Finnish Pirates, and there are a few there who are working for the election now so some momentum too, also flying costs themselves are quite reasonable)
Tallinn (bit unsure about the status of the pirates there, but there are really cheap places there, and if there are pirates left might give them a wake up call)
