With 10 agreements and 1 abstain, we can endorse Prakash Raj

I have listened to his speech at Kerala Literature Fest 2019 and following his statements loosely. I think we should support his candidature and we should campaign for him. See https://prakashraj.com/ for more details.

Endorse Praveen's candidature in Kozhikode, Kerala Closed Wed 20 Mar 2019

Outcome
by Pirate Praveen Mon 1 Apr 2019

We are endorsing Praveen from Kozhikode. Update: Praveen is contesting from Kannur instead of Kozhikode as we have better local support and logistics become easier.

I'm a permanent member of Indian Pirates and I'm planning to contest Lok Sabha elections 2019 from Kozhikode. Since we are not a registered party, I will be contesting as an independent candidate. I also contested last Kerala state assembly elections from Thiruvananthapuram. The main goal is getting to talk to people about Indian Pirates and the ideas we stand for. First goal: Elections are a good time to talk to any random person about politics. Last time we had around 5 people to campaign and we could not talk to more than 500 people and we still got 160 votes. The decision to contest elections itself brought in more people to Indian Pirates. Second goal: Talking to people and debating issues can give more confidence to us, so it is helpful as a learning exercise as well. So I'd like to have a bigger team to campaign this time.

Last time we said in elections in India people can only be involved who live in India or have an Passport from India?
I know people who could help with socialmedia but they do not forfill the above conditions?

PP

For election contributions (money) and campaigning only Indian nationals or Non Resident Indian are allowed. Probably for social media as well.

Would you volunteer some hours for building online campaign? Closed Wed 3 Apr 2019

We need to build an online campaign to reach out to people and talk about our ideas. This could involve recording videos, creating posters, notices, banners etc. You can do it from wherever you are. Since we don't have a lot of money to spend on public relations companies, everyone of us need to pitch in. By doing this, it also help us grow as we get clarification ourselves when trying to convey ideas to people. We will have to find answers to what people ask, so that will lead to more research on different topics.

@vidyut we can help the campaigns online or on the ground. If there is some one we support near to people that would make it possible for them to join a campaign. So if I don't get the money to contest, I'm planning to help other campaigns.

i was following the discussions here but wasn't able to take part in them due to busy schedule. i'd like to express my support for the candidates mentioned in this thread.

Representation for historically oppressed groups is also essential for democracy.

i agree, like Kanhaiya Kumar says we've to support alternative politics that stands up and fights against hate and oppression.
