[Wikimedia-l] Flash fundraiser for Wikimedia Portugal

GoEthe.wiki
Dear all,

As you may know, AffCom and the Wikimedia Foundation has decided to extend
the suspension of Wikimedia Portugal, while waiting for legal counsel for
our case. This has put our programmatic activities in jeopardy, as we have
been barred from applying to funding from WMF while the suspension is in
effect.

We have therefore started an emergency fundraiser campaign [1] to raise
500€ by the end of this week, in order to salvage as much of the activities
as we can. Even if we only raise a third of this goal will allow us to, for
example, participate at a conference we have helped organize [2] and
present a workshop at the National Library of Portugal [3]. If we reach our
goal in full, it will allow us a bit of air to organize events in the first
trimester of 2019, while we wait for a final decision from AffCom.

If you would like to contribute, please use the information on the first
link. We will be eternally grateful.

Olá Gonçalo and Wikimedia Portugal.
Was easier for me, on behalf of WikiDonne User Group, to send a PayPal to
your individual email rather than an international money transfer from my
bank (40% were taxes to be added).
Good look.

Camelia from WDG

For what it's worth, I am sorry to hear about this painful situation. I
don't know enough about the situation in WMPT, WMF, and AffCom, to say much
more than that at this time, and I have no authority to intervene, but I
hope that the chapter is viable and that in there will be a light at the
end of the tunnel.
