Why the Pirate Times?

The pirate movement has been an international force right from the start. Today +60 countries have started their own pirate parties. This creates a need for the interchange of information, news and tips between the parties. Although there are several opportunities to interact between countries (for example within the PPI) there has still been little exchange of information. Pirate Times helps with this through acting as an international news service for pirates. We want to inform pirates and everyone interested in pirate politics about topics that are relevant to all of us from an international perspective. We are loosely associated to the PPI and accepted their kind offer to use PPI infrastructure.

Main goals

  • More international awareness between different pirate parties
  • Spreading news internationally and sharing best practices regardless of borders.

International topics can be brought to the attention of all pirate parties and more coordination can take place which will strengthen the pirate movement. You can help us to further build and develop this news service.
