Dear pirates,

I am asking you to support, however you can, the participation of the 
Pirate Party of Greece in the national elections taking place this year. [1]

As I am sure all of you have heard by now, our troubled country is 
heading into elections. Again.

The Pirate Party of Greece, did not participate in the last elections in 
January [2], for various reasons, the main among them being the high 
financial cost of participating in elections in Greece.

We believe that it is important that the Pirate Party runs in these 
elections. There has already been some attention in the media, because 
of the talks PPGR has had with other parties [3]. Not taking part in 
this election challenge would be a lost chance to promote the Pirate 
values to the Greek electorate, and it is not unthinkable that there 
won't be any other elections for a time.

Unfortunately, running for elections in Greece has high costs, as the 
participating parties are responsible for the printing of their own 
ballots. We estimate that this election run will cost up to 25,000 €. 
We are in talks with many other political parties in Greece, trying to 
form an electoral coalition as a 'Plan B'. However we are also trying to 
gather the required funds, so we can independently take part in the 
election race and promote the Pirate Party to the people in Greece.
We have set up a web page for crowdfunding:* 

We are asking all Pirate Parties, to promote this web page and our 
crowdfunding action to their members. Please if you can, consider 
donating to our cause, and forward this page to anyone that might be 
sympathetic to our cause.

With hearty pirate cheers,
Antonios Motakis (a.k.a. Tony)
Intl. Coordinator
Pirate Party of Greece
