Pontinha, the next Catalonia

The Principality of Pontinha is claiming independence. It is a little islet in the Port of Funchal, in Madeira, Portugal. The Principality of Pontinha has an independentist leader, the Head of the Government, the Prince Renato II of Pontinha.
He is trying to develope his country and to promote the islet around the world. Pontinha is a self-proclaimed principality.

A possible referendum?

The Prince Renato wants to develope the country, implanting a digital democracy. He wants to create an Assembly to allow worldwide people to vote about proposals of the Principality.
This project will be proposed by a referendum. If the project wons the referendum, the project will be implanted and Pontinha will become the first digital democracy in the world.

A nation, a culture

Pontinha is a nation, it is one of the templar countries that exist in the world. It is an islet known for its templar elements and symbols.

Democracy and direct participation

The idea of direct democracy that the Prince wants to implant in the Principality, is an idea of international participation over a territory.
The citizens of Potinha won't be the only to have the right of deciding the political future of the Principality, every user of the world can be a voluntary in the Pontinha development.

International recognition

There are a lot of micronations and territories which want to secede from their jurisdictions, so Pontinha can play a main role in Catalonia's process.
Self Herald have designed a comic to encourage Pontinha and Catalonia to support each other.


The Prince Renato II and its reforms

The Principality of Pontinha is facing a Revolution. But not a revolution between powers, a revolution of its political system. The Prince Renato II contacted with me, the author of this blog, and he asked me about how to develope and promote the Principality. I introduced him the concept of Digital Democracy and I explained to him the benefits that a project like this can contribute to the development of the Principality. Months later, I made a document explaining my propose to this project. Tomorrow afternoon, I will explain all the details of this project and I will share a document that I made explianing how this project of e-democracy in the Principality of Pontinha will be developed.

RENATO BARROS WANTS TO MAKE PONTINHA GREAT AGAIN

Renato Barros wants to promote his country around the world. This is why he is making a lot of ''marketing'' for his Principality. From this blog, we will help him to do so.
Renato Barros, as a Sovereign wants to recruit loyal citizens to the world.
A lot of people is loyal to the Crown of Pontinha and the number of citizens of this country is increasing.

New coat of arms for our Blog

The Self Herald blog has designed his own coat of arms. The design of the Coat of Arms represents the diversity of the micronations of the world and the right of writing the Gazette of Pontinha, wich is the main international newspaper of the Principality of Pontinha (Principado Independente do Ilhéu da Pontinha).

Why a coat of arms?
Our blog is a political gazette. It represents all the Micronations and semi-sovereign countries and political entities with disputed sovereignty. Yesterday, the Prince of Pontinha, gave to me, the right of creating an official Gazette of the Principality of Pontinha. This official Gazette of the Principality of Pontinha will be the most international mass media of the little Principality.
The fact of designing a coat of arms, is a good way of promoting the blog, giving a sence of identity to it.


Kind Regards
