Affiliations Committee/Resolutions/De-recognition Wiki Education Brazil

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


  1. Recognizing Wikimedia User Groups is the responsibility of the Affiliations Committee;
  2. Wikimedia User Groups are required to comply with the terms of the Wikimedia User Group Agreement and Code of Conduct;
  3. The Wikimedia User Group Agreement and Code of Conduct prohibit Wikimedia User Groups from engaging in activity that poses significant risk to other Wikimedia organizations or Wikimedia projects;
  4. Wiki Education Brazil has engaged in a severe and protracted conflict with Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil;
  5. The conflict has resulted in significant harm to past, ongoing, and planned Wikimedia movement activities in Brazil; and
  6. All reasonable attempts to resolve the conflict have failed.

Therefore be it resolved that:

  1. The recognition of Wiki Education Brazil as a Wikimedia User Group is revoked;
  2. The Wikimedia Foundation Legal Department is requested to terminate Wiki Education Brazil's User Group Agreement as soon as practicable; and
  3. The primary contacts of Wiki Education Brazil are prohibited from serving as primary contacts for any Wikimedia User Group application or existing Wikimedia User Group for a period of one year.
