OAM Council votes in favour of disbandment
Resolution 221 has passed the Council of the Organisation of Active Micronations, paving the way for the disestablishment of the largest micronational organisation in history.
The Council voted in favour of the resolution, which will disestablish the OAM after provisions have been made for its re-incarnation as a sort of micronational ‘forum farm’, whereby various micronations’ online fora will be hosted on one single forum, to aid inter-micronational communication.
However, the organisational structures and the very organisation itself will cease to exist.
The set-up is understood to be very similar to that of the Micras-based Bastion Union, where the idea for the rebirth of the OAM came from.
Sir. Philip Fish, founder of the OAM and proposer of the resolution, said that although it was a hard decision, it was a necessary one.
“I, and now I can say the Council believes, that this course of action is the best way to solve the recent issues surrounding the OAM”.
He admitted that there had been some confusion over the plan, but said that he was confident that the confusion would soon be cleared up.
King Anthony of Zealandia, also the last Secretary-General of the OAM, told members in a private forum message that “this is not the end”.
“It is quite a sad day for this is the end of the road for the OAM, it has lived through some turbulent times and some good times”.
