GUM to host second 24 hour quorum

The Grand Unified Micronational’s second charity 24 Hour Quorum will be held between May 5 and 7, according to a resolution adopted yesterday.

The event, first held in 2012, originated as a joke that a session of the intermicronational organization’s Quorum (general assembly) could theoretically continue indefinitely if each motion to adjourn was defeated. The joke quickly morphed into a challenge to GUM delegates to maintain the required minimum participants to keep a session active for an uninterrupted period of 24 hours.

The challenge acquired a charity event aspect when several delegates were sponsored to participate. In the end, over forty micronationalists spoke in succession and US$128 was raised for eight charities, including Amnesty International and World Vision.

The specifics of this year’s event have not been published by GUM as of press time.
