Two Piratecons in two Hemispheres
In the coming weeks there will be two Pirate Conferences. One in Boston, Massachusetts, USA and the other in Mariánské Lázně, Czech Republic, Europe
The first will be on the Saturday, 25 April 2015 in Boston and although local in nature it will be very welcoming to visiting Pirates from outside the city, the state and the nation. Registration costs just $10 and is free if you are under 18. The conference will last all day and be followed by dinner. Topics are:
- How we won Net Neutrality – Keynote by Evan Greer (Fight for the Future)
- Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and you
- Building 3rd party coalitions
- Rethinking the City
- Income Inequality
- Pirate Strategy for 2016
Childcare is available. Slides for the talks will be posted and videos made available as soon as possible after the event.
Following the successful elections in Mariánské Lázně the Czech Pirates have joined forces with PPDE in hosting a conference. It will be held over the weekend of 15 – 17 May 2015. Registration costs 10 € and can be completed online. If you wish to contribute the deadline for submitting titles and abstracts of presentations is Saturday 25 April 2015. A list of speakers and topics will be announced later.

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
