Greek Pirates Participation in EU Elections depends on Crowdfunding

Greek Pirates Participation in EU Elections depends on Crowdfunding

Considering the awful economic situation that still is making the lives of the Greek people a misery, it is courageous of the Greek Pirate Party to plan to take part in the European Parliament elections.

The Party was founded two years ago and since then it has participated in the twin national elections in May and June of 2012 where they managed to get 0.51% of the vote at a cost of EUR 35,000.

The European Elections will require a more modest sum, namely EUR 16,000. However two years on from the national elections there is less money in Greek pockets. In order to make donating as easy as possible, PPGR has set up two web sites. One for simple donations and another for crowdfunding

If you are not a Greek speaker then the simple donation page is probably the easiest. You can donate by bank transfer, Paypal, Bitcoin and Litecoin.
