Pirate Party in the Netherlands General Assembly
On Sunday, 6 July 2014, a General Assembly (GA) of the Pirate Party of the Netherlands was held in the city of Utrecht. The turnout was around 55 persons at the meeting. On the agenda for the GA was the election of new board members, as the current administration was becoming too small, and there were several motions on the program, left from their previous GA which was dominated by the European Elections. The president opened the meeting and after a few words of thanks and welcome, a minute of silence was observed for Ronnie Popkema who passed away recently.
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
