Introductory Note:

We are organizing second edition of Pirate Cycling to spread the Pirate Ideas to the wider society. First edition of this activity was 5 years back and mainly focused on issues relating to politics of technology.

Now we want to expand our focus to issues of identity based discrimination as well. We invite all marginalized or systematically discriminated communities (Women, LGBTIQ, Dalits, Tribals etc) to join this celebration of Pirates.

Indian Pirates is a political experiment in building a non-hierarchical political movement without separation of leaders and cadres, everyone has the opportunity to participate in policy making and every member has one vote in all decisions.

Hierarchical organizations and representatives were a historic necessity when communication among a group distributed across a large geographical area was impossible. People had to meet physically to discuss and decide on any issues and this created a barrier for all members to participate.

With advancement of communication technologies, we no longer have this restriction and every member interested in a topic can participate in discussions and be part of decision making.

Our Basic Principles [Include our basic principles]

Many of the principles listed are shared by many groups, but what makes us unique is our non-hierarchical structure and transparency. Every discussion and decision is available for all to see over the internet.

Look for well maintained ones in OLX. It will be much cheaper.

I thought of buying one initially, but hiring it may be better.

I talked to Sarath from Keraleeyam magazine about possibility of staying at Chalakkudy. He said he will talk to Kerala Jaiva Karshaka Samithi (Organic farmers association) and confirm. I also talked to Hussain from Rachana Akshara Vedi and he will check if KFRI hostel in Peechy is available. Another possibility is to shift the event a week to August 4-5, in which case Moozhikulam Shala is available (which was our preferred camping place but was already booked for Kerala Sastra Sahithya Parishad camp on July 28, 29). @harishk can you confirm if we can hire cycles from the shop suggested by @sgk .
