"Iceland moved closer to the anti-establishment Pirate party gaining a place in government after the Independence party failed to pull together a governing coalition following recent elections."

Taking power from the powerful and returning it to the people!

Even Hollywood elites are running their own private file sharing networks. The Academy Award for irony goes to you guys!

"effectively set up its own pirate site of DVD screeners and other movie rips on a shared Google drive folder. This, according to the lawsuit, led to watermarked screener copies of Creed and Heart of the Sea being uploaded to file-sharing sites."
Talent agency says "sharing of award screeners is commonplace" in Hollywood.

Press Release: Census debacle demonstrates Government inability to manage digital privacy and security issues.

“We call upon the ABS to abandon plans to make all of our private data searchable and cross-referenceable, so as to protect the privacy of every Australian. We also call on the ABS to send out paper forms and not penalise anyone who refuses to share identifiable information." commented Simon Frew, Pirate Party President. Read more:

At first you might think we'd be in favour of rising sea levels. But no, a broken planet and an unpredictable climate is in no one's interest.

This election, we're supporting serious action on climate change and a rapid move to renewable energy sources.

"unpredictable climate is in no one's interest"
Since when was the climate ever predictable?

Also, the graph on the sourced link is cherry picking, as it makes it seem that CO2 is at record levels, which isn't true, for example during the Ordovician-Silurian period the CO2 levels were greater than 4000 ppmv.

Help fund Pirate Propaganda!

"Australia's federal police and foreign affairs department are now able to match a person's facial image against records held by Immigration after the government sent the first phase of its new face verification service live."

Drivers license and passport photos coming next, as is expanded access to state police forces, ASIO, Defence etc. Do you think we can trust them not to abuse this system? #votepirate
AFP, DFAT can check images against Immigration records.

Here comes Internet censorship, laws passed by Labor and Liberals will soon come in to force. Lawyers for rights-holders are walking through the final stages of perpetual rolling Internet blackouts.
ISPs say it will cost AU$50 to block Kickass Torrents every time it pops up on a new domain. The Australian music industry wants to play that game of whack-a-mole, except no one wants to pay for it.

The United Nations has agreed with a founding tenet of the Pirate movement, issuing a new resolution stressing "the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online".

The United Nations Human Rights Council has passed a resolution for the “promotion, protection, and enjoyment of human rights on the internet” which condemns any country that intentionally disrupts the internet access of its citizens.

Story
Tagline
freedom of information & culture, civil & digital liberties, privacy, anonymity, transparency.
Introduction
Pirate Party Australia was founded by Rodney Serkowski in 2008 and has grown from a small group of activists to a fledgling political party in the short time since its inception.

We are a movement based around the core tenets of:
  • freedom of information and culture
  • civil and digital liberties
  • privacy and anonymity
  • government transparency
  • participatory democracy
Pirate Party Australia sees the new space for discussion and sharing as something worth defending. Democracy benefits from transparency, discussion and participation. We exist to campaign for a free society where civil liberties are respected. We believe in the right to privacy for individuals and the need for transparency for organisations. The government is meant to serve the people and by fighting for these principles we believe it can.

Get involved! Join the Pirate Party today:
