Is the proposal only for Pirate Party of India? Because India as a country already complies with Geneva Convention. Link for reference -


Pirate Vik Sun 4 Jul 2021 12:26PM

I made the proposal for two reasons. One as a reminder that India complies with the Geneva Convention - some countries are flouting it or making it specific to some groups and not others. Secondly, describing the economic benefits to a country helps us to have dialogue with and persuade those that have been told the opposite story (which is not actually true). Could you give your support to this?

2nd is a statement. There is no actionable thing in that. For clarity in 1st, we must add specific action that we want India to take; "flouting rules" is very broad. Before this we should specify where India is contradicting the Geneva Convention.


Pirate Vik Mon 5 Jul 2021 6:23PM

The actionable thing would be to promote that statement using facts and figures. There is no mention in my wording of flouting rules however and I think there are many good examples of India accepting refugees. I just want us to have a clear position as part of the basic principles of Indian Pirates.

Sorry I picked from one of you replies above. Not in the proposal though.

Yes promoting the Geneva Convention could be part of our tasks. And it is good to have a clear position.
