The Pirate Party
Who Are We?
We are a newly formed party aiming to pass the four-percent barrier to entry in this fall's general Swedish parliamentary elections. To do this, we need about 225,000 votes.
Our core values are that the right to privacy must be guaranteed, and that copyright and patents hurt culture and innovation, rather than promoting them.
