US Pirate Party Issues:
- Regarding plan committee, there are a lot of different takes on gun policy and regulations. Joe asks folks to weigh in via discord. He believes it's a hard conversation we need to have. See https://uspirates.org/chat/ for discord link.
- Among different states, there are different takes on a Women's right to choose. MAPP has a "reproductive freedom as a human right" policy.
"They will look for causes of trauma and harm, everywhere except were they actually exist".
- Party conference scheduled for Jan 21st. Unfortunately we haven't had bandwidth to promote it. Were planning a virtual conference for Jan 21; the next one will be in-person in Lowell. Jamie suggests pushing it back one month. We agree to reschedule for Feb 18th. Will put out call for topics this weekend.
- Jamie will reach out to our activism and PR director, to see what meeting times work for them.
2023 local elections
- Town elections are in process now. Folks in Arlington who'd like to run for town meeting should contact Steve via info AT masspirates.org. Steve says it's always a challenge to find good people to run.
- Last Sunday, we recorded a segment on public domain day.
- Next pirate news Sunday at 7pm (go live at 7:30).
Last Pirate News included a discussion about public domain day. It's also the 10th Anniversary of Aaron Schwartz's death.
Working on reports for OCPF. Hope to have them done next week.
