We have some exciting events we are organizing or will be a part of during this Summer.  But first … Meet your new Captain and First Officer At our last weekly IRC meeting, we adopted our new Articles of Agreement and Code of Conduct.  We also elected acting Cap’n James O’Keefe of Somerville and acting 1st Officer Jeremy (J. P.) Hollembaek of Lowell.  You can reach James at jokeefe at jamesokeefe dot org and J.P. at jphollembaek at gmail dot com.  Both will serve until we hold elections under the new Articles of Agreement.  Also, the Party needs a member to be our treasurer, so if you are interested, please contact us.  We welcome your comments and help. Our focus is on starting local chapters, identifying candidates for the 2012 elections and fighting bills such as the PROTECT IP Act.  Our next IRC meeting today, June 13th at 9:30pm will be about planning for the 2012 election.  To join us, go to the Organizing section on the right column of the blog and follow the instructions.

You can find out about the event at this page, and you can tell Civic Counsel that you will attend at their Facebook event. Please spread the word far and wide. On Saturday, July 16th, 1-3pm, we will be handing out flyers and signing up new pirates at Art Beat in Somerville.  Art Beat is a long-running arts festival in Somerville and it will be a good place to tell folks about the Pirate Party.  If you … Read more
