The Conference has interrupted the recess to begin a discussion concerning issues facing the Leftist community and Leftist micronations. Acting-Secretary Sörgel spoke:
The 3 November 2012 CCPS Party Congress elected James Thompson as Secretary of the Party, under his objective to reduce Libera’s self-defence requirements and increase the role of Proletarian Internationalism in Sandus. One year on, Sandus is holding its first major, international conference combining former enemies and close friends into discussing Leftist problems plaguing Sandus and the intermicronational Leftist community. I have considered these questions for you all, which would be instrumental for Sandus and the community to consider:
1) How has Sandus done, as you believe, in accomplishing the platform of former Secretary Thompson? That is, how have we done in reducing Libera’s self-defence requirement and introducing Proletarian Internationalism (while, at the same time, being isolationist)?
2) What can the Leftist Community do to improve the individual micronations which follow Socialist thought? Has this conference, up to now, been successful in bringing Leftist politicians together to consider issues which impact us individually and us as a community?
3) This is a big one in Sandus: What are the sort of economic issues which plague Leftist micronational states?
Update: 14:37 SLT
The conversation has concluded with an acknowledged need for a forum to continue the productive conversation which was had. Various topics included ways to advance Leftist micronations, how to attract non-citizens to our micronations, how to receive money in order to subsidise proletarian projects, how to register micronations as tax-exempt entities (if a state so desires or believes it is congruent with its policies), and how to create bank accounts for micronations. The conversation concluded with the desire to continue these sorts of discussions with future conferences and a professional forum for which the intermicronational leftist organisations, parties, and states can continue the conversation. Acting-Secretary Sörgel then hush the discussion by bringing Adam I of Uberstadt to the floor to present his speech.
Update: 14:54 SLT
Adam I of Uberstadt has concluded his speech on the micronational and socialist history of Uberstadt and the role of economics in the micronation, as well as the utilisation of Uberstadt’s “chocolate standard” as a basis for their money. His speech is available here.
Update: 15:36 SLT
The CCPS Party Conference has concluded by reaching a consensus with the attendees and presenters. The Acting-Secretary formally closed the Conference by playing the two hymns necessary for the closing of all important Party functions: the Anthem of the Party, the Worker’s Marseillaise, and the song The Flag Still Waves.
