Last Sunday, 24 May 2015, there were local elections in Spain. The Pirate Party members of Confederación Pirata are part of many citizens’ alliances formed by grassroots movements, other left leaning parties and independent citizens.
The Pirates stood more than 30 cities around Spain. Those alliances, in which the Pirates took part, obtained 59 council seats. Eight of the lists were headed by Pirates. Dario Castañé, Carlos González and Adrián Juste were the list leaders who won council seats last Sunday.

With general elections due by the end of the year, members of the Conferación Pirata are still in contact with other parties looking to create a big popular front based on direct democracy, human rights and transparency.
A big change began four years ago and now the people are confirming it at the polls. The political power of the People’s Party and the Socialist Party has dropped considerably but the Pirates believe they have to keep working for citizens to be able to decide about their present and future.
