Brazil Pirate Party breaks 100k Facebook Followers
The Pirates of Brazil (PPBR) have laid claim to the title of most influential Pirate Party on social media. They recently surpassed 100,000 likes on Facebook.
This is far greater than PPBRs nearest friendly Pirate rivals:
Pirate Party of Sweden 81,000
Pirate Party of Germany 85,000
and for reference, the international party:
Pirate Parties International 10,000
This shows there are more ways to be influential than having Pirate in a parliament. Brazil’s laws set a large hurdle for new parties to register and participate in elections. However, PPBR is making an impact in the country as they move towards being able to take part in electoral campaigns.
