The Swedish Pirate Party is Crowdfunding for European Campaign
Just as the Australian Pirates were celebrating their crowdfunding success we received news that the Swedish Pirates are pursuing a similar fundraising effort for the European Parliament elections with a page where Pirates (and other supporters) can make targeted donations. Currently there are 13 different options to donate to at http://crowdfunding.piratpartiet.se/ and in less than a week they have gathered ~5000 Euros through their crowdfunding campaign.
Those who donate will be rewarded with everything from a guaranteed place at the election night party, election posters (autographed by top candidates) or a dinner alone with the party leader. If the total donated amount exceeds SEK 3,000,000 (nearly EUR400,000) there might also be a “Wrecking Ball” video. Two of the campaigns have already been fully donated.
“The Pirate Party is totally dependent on our supporters contributions”, says Anna Troberg
Even though the Swedish Pirate Party has two MEPs, they receive no government financial support for national elections as they are not in the Swedish government.
