The Pirate parties form the political emancipation and psychological breaking free from old structures and habits. 

We aim to keep you updated of the current status of Pirate parties around the world, their political context and the evolution of this global phenomenon of cooperative political participation.  

To do this we could use your help in all possible forms: 
* everybody can write about the political climate from their perspective and we invite you to do just that ! Get involved in the Pirate Times here.
* everybody can tell a story; take out you smartphone and investigate or interview another ! Send your pics and links to media@piratetimes.org
* we are a network of volunteers (and we work practically for free) but the servers and domainname are not.  So if you could support us financially that would be welcome.

The Young Pirates of Europe (YPE) are a European federation of European pirate youth organisations and other youth organisations that work on digital issues, for transparency in government, participating democracy and civil rights.
