The Pirate Party in English

The Pirate Party (Piratpartiet) was founded in Sweden on January 1st, 2006, and has since constantly fought for a better world, free of oppression and censorship. We are running for the general elections on March 22nd, 2015.

We live in a time which is unique in the history of mankind. Never before have so many had the possibility of communicating so easily with each other. Never before have so many had such access to knowledge. Never before has the spreading of information led to such fast paced technological, cultural and financial progress, which has also opened so many possibilities for participation and democracy.

This progress has to go on. The Pirate Party wants information to be free, not kept behind closed doors. Sharing culture should be encouraged - not outlawed. People should be able to communicate without fearing that others are listening in. Everyone - regardless of their functional impairments, their age and their finances - must have a practical opportunity to use the new technology and take use of the ongoing progress. We are convinced that people who have access to communication free from surveillance grow, feel better, and lead a better and more humane world together. The freedom to be who you are increases, and it becomes all the more easier to strive to become who you want to be.
