The Pirate Party was founded in 2006 to bring Sweden into the digital future. Since then we have spread to over sixty countries and developed into the world’s most successful political movement since the environmental movement in the 80s.
There have been pirates in the European Parliament since 2009. During the period 2009-2014, we worked, among other things, to stop the free trade agreement ACTA and introduce net neutrality and protection of your privacy. In 2014-2019, the focus was mainly on reforming copyright, supporting free software and protecting freedom of expression on the internet. Since 2019, three Czech and one German pirate work in the European Parliament, focusing on anti-corruption and transparency, online civil rights and free software.
We want to build a society based on the principles of freedom, dignity and participation. Become a pirate you too – together we can become the political force of the digital age!
