  • <@kusanagi> Mozart from PPAU wanted to talk with us about the TPP. Are you here, Moz?
  • <Mozart> Yep.
  • <@kusanagi> Does anyone object to having him speak?
  • <@kusanagi> since nonmember and all
  • <QuazarGuy> no
  • <OrionSteele> please speak Mozart (mozart is a badass and CAPP has a question for you afterwards)
  • <@kusanagi> go ahead Mozart
  • <Sacha> Can we go ahead and allow at large to speak as well for the discussion?
  • Brendan notes that Mozart is in a library somewhere.
  • <Mozart> I'm sure many people would object to me being called a "badass". Haha.
  • <OrionSteele> not us :)
  • <Mozart> Brendan would probably object for starters.
  • <Brendan> he's a pussy cat.
  • <@kusanagi> guys
  • <@kusanagi> on topic
  • <Mozart> I hope everyone here has at least heard of the TPP?
  • <Mozart> It's pretty much the Pacific ACTA -- only in some places worse.
  • <OrionSteele> yes
  • <MrSquared> yep
  • <akollar> Well now I have.
  • <QuazarGuy> I thought the text wasn't available
  • <Mozart> (Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership#Controversy_over_Intellectual_Property_.28IP.29_provisions)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership#Controversy_over_Intellectual_Property_.28IP.29_provisions
  • <Mozart> (Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership#Controversy_over_negotiation_secrecy)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership#Controversy_over_negotiation_secrecy
  • <Mozart> (Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Strategic_Economic_Partnership
  • <Mozart> There are some links.
  • <Mozart> There have been about three leaks of draft/negotiating texts.
  • <CalebLangeslag> When was the latest?
  • <Mozart> About a week ago.
  • <CalebLangeslag> Not bad
  • <Mozart> It showed that AU/US are both opposing fair use, in essence.
  • <Mozart> At the last two negotiating rounds, PPAU and CAPP presented.
  • <Mozart> That was in Melbourne and San Diego respectively.
  • <Mozart> The round is in Leesburg, Virginia.
  • <OrionSteele> the text of the speech CAPP presented is here: (Link: http://www.calpirateparty.org/1/post/2012/07/california-pirate-party-response-to-the-trans-pacific-partnership-treaty.html)http://www.calpirateparty.org/1/post/2012/07/california-pirate-party-response-to-the-trans-pacific-partnership-treaty.html
  • <Mozart> (Link: http://www.ustr.gov/tpp/)http://www.ustr.gov/tpp/
  • <Mozart> Registrations for it close in about a week.
  • <Bosun> can we make a formal resolution of the pnc opposing any US treaty that is done in secret unless it directly relates to national security?
  • <Mozart> Wait till I've finished.
  • <Rush> Why not national security?
  • <@kusanagi> Guys
  • <@kusanagi> let Mozart finish
  • <@kusanagi> go on
  • <Mozart> This needs to be opposed directly. It would be great if as many presentations as possible could be put on.
  • <Mozart> Bear in mind that members of PPAU travelled +1000 klicks to attend the Melbourne one.
  • <Mozart> It is serious.
  • <Mozart> So, I would like you all to consider sending at least a USPP delegate.
  • <Mozart> Preferably the states could also send their own.
  • <@kusanagi> When is the next round?
  • <Mozart> September 9th.
  • <Mozart> Registrations close next week.
  • <Mozart> I pasted a link above to the USTR page on it.
  • <Mozart> That's about all I have to say, are there any questions?
  • <@kusanagi> None here, but thank you
  • <Sacha> Can at large speak
  • <Mozart> I am also available to help write/edit presentations that get written.
  • <Sacha> +
  • <OrionSteele> we can also help write presentations and work with anyone on the logistical side of registering or writing flyers for the table
  • <@kusanagi> Sacha: please refrain from speaking out-of-order
  • <@kusanagi> have someone make a motion
  • <@kusanagi> that's really awesome of you guys, I think MAPP mentioned something about sending someone, but they're not here tonight
  • <Mozart> I was very impressed with CAPP's presentation. I would recommend avoiding doubling up on the same content if several states present.
  • <Mozart> That way you maximise your time.
  • <akollar> I will be back in a few if anyone needs me.
  • <OrionSteele> I heard Travis say something about this in one of our back channels...I am writing him an email now on some other things and I will see if he is still interested in attending the negotiations
  • <Mozart> I believe he will be out of the country. Which is unfortunate as he could have presented on behalf of PPCA.
  • <@kusanagi> i think he's going to be in london around that time
  • <OrionSteele> oh crap that's right
  • <Mozart> Might hassle the Canadians about this.
  • <@kusanagi> might be a good idea to
  • <Brendan> OrionSteele: fly
  • <OrionSteele> hahaha wish i had the money
  • <@kusanagi> we all wish we had the money lol
  • <Mozart> How much would it cost?
  • <@kusanagi> ]
  • <@kusanagi> about 600USD
  • <@kusanagi> at least
  • <Mozart> Ouch.
  • <OrionSteele> its ok i can still poke my head around to see if we can get anyone
  • <OrionSteele> i will try for the next day or two to find someone if no one here can do it...i can get back to you on this
  • <jarod_> check my website if yall need a quote apextourism.com
  • <@kusanagi> jarod_: shameless, huh? lol
  • <Mozart> Well, thank you for your time.
  • <@kusanagi> No problem, thank you.
  • <Mozart> Give them hell.
  • <jarod_> pretty much

  • <Deamon> I can do the MI update if Sach is cool with it

  • <@kusanagi> any progress is good progress
  • <@kusanagi> awesome
  • <Deamon> We have 10 more likes on the Facebook page, and the website is getting some behind the scenes work. We're still waiting on the AGPPP care package and I'll get my Ann Arbor boys to start flyering with other flyers when we get the funds
  • <@kusanagi> is that all?
  • <@kusanagi> oops
  • <@kusanagi> lol
  • <Deamon> I type slow my bad
  • <@kusanagi> it's okay, i type fastish
  • <Deamon> We have a couple contacts at the U of M to flyer there and I'm trying to get others from Wayne State, EMU and other universities to start student groups when that starts all back up
  • <Sacha> AGPPP came in today, if you want we can ask them about sending some flyers about the pp if they wish?
  • <Sacha> We also have MSU and GVSU that we can put flyers up at

  • <@kusanagi> awesome
  • <CalebLangeslag> Been trying to contact someone from the Minneapolis area (whom has been around this IRC a bit, but not around much more), but they've been busy and kind of unable to get a moment to talk on the phone.
  • <CalebLangeslag> and that's pretty much all
  • <@kusanagi> that's great
  • <@kusanagi> yaay
  • <CalebLangeslag> Well
  • <CalebLangeslag> If we get the MNPP started, I may have some interested folks from a political meetup that I regularly go to, as well.
  • <CalebLangeslag> in my local area
  • <@kusanagi> that's even better :D
  • <CalebLangeslag> Since privacy, free speech, internet censorship, and so on have been discussions that have been brought up many times before
  • <@kusanagi> so, perfect recruiting grounds
  • <@kusanagi> excellent!@
  • <CalebLangeslag> Pretty much
  • <@kusanagi> ok, next up on AOB is Amanda's point of the elections.
  • <@kusanagi> Sacha: would you like to address that further?
  • <Sacha> We need to have them sometime
  • <Sacha> Soon would be good
  • <Sacha> First step is nominations and I think we need to do that this week or next
  • <@kusanagi> Duly noted. But no nominations have been made yet, only 2 states have ratified
  • <@kusanagi> They should be going on nowish
  • <Sacha> Are we waiting for states to ratify?
  • <Sacha> Why?
  • <Bosun> i thought 3 states ratified
  • <QuazarGuy> someone else did today
  • <@kusanagi> Oh, you're right, 3
  • <@kusanagi> I didn't remember FL
  • <OrionSteele> CAPP will vote and ratify it on Monday
  • <Sacha> Okay, so whose job description would it be to shoot out an email to the member states that have not ratified?
  • <@kusanagi> it's no one's job
  • <Bosun> can you list the states that ratified?
  • <@kusanagi> WI, MA, FL have ratified
  • <QuazarGuy> MA, WA, and FL
  • <@kusanagi> Technically, you have 6 months to ratify
  • <@kusanagi> when did WA ratify?
  • <QuazarGuy> oh WI did?
  • <QuazarGuy> last week
  • <Sacha> We are going to wait 6 months to ratify?

  • <@kusanagi> Can the PNC do that?
  • <Sacha> Kusanagi Yes. They did the same thing with the constitution.

  • <Sacha> QuazarGuy K, if you need help or anything or you are too busy feel free to ask. I don't want people to have to do stuff they do not want to.
  • <@kusanagi> Motion failed, sorry Bosun
  • <Bosun> "If they agree"

  • <QuazarGuy> Bosun, you gonna help him?
  • <@kusanagi> so someone would have to call and tell him about it
  • <Sacha> I could tell him
  • <Bosun> best time to volunteer him, and our tresurer has volunteered to help him.
  • <@kusanagi> LOL
  • <OrionSteele> I will ask him if he wants to do it...although i think we can also take the transcript of the Australia speech and ours and any others prepared for presentation and compile them in one place where people can read them
  • <Bosun> don't we need a second?
  • <Bosun> before we discuss.
  • <@kusanagi> we need a second,.
  • <@kusanagi> OrionSteele, QuazarGuy do you guys second?
  • <Bosun> please.
  • <OrionSteele> sure
  • <@kusanagi> there
  • <@kusanagi> lol now discuss
  • <QuazarGuy> I don't see why this needs a motion
  • <Sacha> Can't we just ask him if he wants to do it
  • <OrionSteele> yeah i mean it is something we should have available at the uspp website and advertise
  • <Sacha> Assigning it to him when he is not even here to accept or disagree is unfair
  • <OrionSteele> but i don't think we should make travis do it if we already have resources available for people
  • <Sacha> and if we are just asking him then I doubt we need a motion
  • <QuazarGuy> or if others are interested in the drafting
  • <OrionSteele> i wouldn't mind assigning it to him if it is only a paragraph or two as an official statement
  • <OrionSteele> but not a full blown paper
  • <Bosun> treasurer of WIPP volunteers to help; His contact is fjk@titania.net.
  • <Sacha> I agree with what QuazarGuy said
  • <Deamon> I can draft up a 2 paragraph statement and send it to him for revision if needed
  • <OrionSteele> that sounds good
  • <Sacha> So what is the plan right now?
  • <OrionSteele> he can edit and change it around as an official statement from the pnc, and then it can be combined with the longer analyses for people that want to read more
  • <Sacha> sounds good
  • <@kusanagi> calloing travis now
  • <Bosun> a vote shows that the PNC agrees on this issue.
  • <OrionSteele> i think the plan is for Deamon / WI volunteers to draft an official statement on the TPP to submit to Travis, who will edit and post along with the other speeches we've already written
  • <QuazarGuy> how about a motion for the PNC to issue a statement on TPP then?
  • <OrionSteele> i can second that one too
  • <Sacha> a motion about that sounds good
  • <Sacha> someone would have to make it though :P
  • <Deamon> I just need contacts of who I send it to
  • <Sacha> Deamon I can give you travis' fb
  • <Sacha> and you can send it to him there
  • <@kusanagi> i'm on the phonwe with ntravis right now
  • <@kusanagi> lol
  • <@kusanagi> he said yes
  • <OrionSteele> sweet
  • <QuazarGuy> shall it be a press release?
  • <Bosun> move to amend: substitute "issue a statement" for "direct the captain to draft a statement"
  • <@kusanagi> "I will handle it as a press release" - travis mccrea
  • <Sacha> sweet
  • <Sacha> so do we need a motion at all?
  • <Bosun> a vote shows solidarity
  • <@kusanagi> vote
  • <OrionSteele> CAPP votes aye
  • <QuazarGuy> aye
  • <Bosun> point of order: a second and vote must be called on the amendment.
  • <QuazarGuy> CA seconded
  • <Sacha> isnt the captain supposed to call the vote
  • <@kusanagi> i did
  • <Sacha> Ahh okay I didn't see 'vote'
  • <@kusanagi> sorry lol
  • <Bosun> we're voting on the amendment, correct?
  • <@kusanagi> yes
  • <Bosun> aye.
  • <QuazarGuy> now I'm lost
  • <QuazarGuy> kusinagi paste what we're voting on
  • <Bosun> voting on the amendment to the origional motion.
  • <Bosun> (move to amend: substitute "issue a statement" for "direct the captain to draft a statement")

>>> Brady has quit IRC: Quit: Leaving

  • <Bosun> chair, what can we do to move forward, or should we scrap and start over?
  • <@kusanagi> yeah, i messed up there too, i'm sorry. Can we start that over?
  • <QuazarGuy> you're acting captain you decide
  • <Bosun> origional motion: "WI moves that we direct the captain to draft a statement of opposition to the TPP". As ammended, if ammendment is approved; WI moves that we issue a statement of opposition to the TPP."
  • <@kusanagi> I did.
  • <@kusanagi> Can we accept that as a friendly amendment?
  • <Bosun> yes.
  • <@kusanagi> awesome
  • <@kusanagi> So, shall we vote on that?
