Correction: PPI has a Bank Account
In a recently published article about Pirate Parties International I reported that PPI does not have access to a bank account. This was in error.
I am now very happy to learn that this is not the case and that since August 2014 there has been an account in Luxembourg in the name of Pirate Parties International and that there will also be one in Brussels; the required papers have just been filed.
This is very important to the question as to whether PPI should be reformed or not. Up to now the expenditures of any actions taken on behalf of the organisation have been at the cost of individuals or national parties. This has impeded the work and democratic integrity of the organisation. Having two bank accounts in separate countries will help prevent a situation where PPI has had no access to its own account for such a long time to occur again.

About Andrew Reitemeyer
I joined the Pirate Party of Lower Saxony in Germany in April 2012, once I found out that non citizens were welcome to join and become active members of the Party. I joined the Pirate Times soon after it was started as a proof reader and am now an editor and author. Since then I have returned to my native New Zealand and joined the Pirate Party of New Zealand. Politically I come from the libertarian left and have, up to now, not regarded any political party as having a solution for the democratic deficit that envelops the world. With the advent of the Pirate Party, which truly embraces grass roots democracy, I have found a political home. The Pirate Times is a way I can contribute to furthering the Pirate Movement around the world. Skype: frithogar
