November was a busy month. We helped Aaron James earn 2635 votes, the most of any Pirate in Massachusetts. Our first campaign training was well attended. Over 30 people attended the Somerville cryptoparty.
We aren’t stopping. Whether the issue is Trump getting his hands on the massive surveillance state Obama perpetuated, the Department of Defense hiding that it wastes at least $25 billion a year or banksters stealing people’s houses, the US needs Pirates.
And we need you.
Today from 2 to 4pm we will have a tech hackathon to work on our website and other tech projects. Email email@example.com for the directions if you plan to attend.
Next Saturday the 17th, we will be join Chelsea Manning supporters for a stand out on her birthday. It will be from 1-2pm in front of the Park St. MBTA stop in downtown Boston. Please send her a birthday card and support her struggle.
Wednesday the 28th will be the last Somerville cryptoparty of the year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help find a site for this meeting.
We put up our slide decks and audio recordings for two of the talks at our campaign training:
- What you can do as a town meeting member (audio)
- Your Community needs you to run for local office (audio)
If you haven’t told us that you are interested in running for office, please do so.
