Pirate Party of Finland

Piraattipuolue (Pirate Party of Finland) is a political party in Finland and a part of a global pirate party movement.


  • is a party with a focus on information society topics which values openness and liberty and defends the freedom of speech, privacy and justice.
  • wants to promote freedom of information by removing excessive copyright restrictions, abolishing the current patent system and by promoting the spread and openness of government and scientific data.
  • demands more openness in public decision-making and more possibilities for citizens to participate in political processes.
  • wants a reasonable information society policy according to which public money would be used more efficiently, and which would promote free sharing of information.
  • wants to cut bureaucracy and the power of public authorities and give people more choice in their lives. For this and other reasons Piraattipuolue wants to see the current social security system replaced by a basic income scheme.
    Piraattipuolue aims to get elected into the Finnish parliament, municipal councils and the European Parliament. Regarding policies not covered by the party manifesto, when elected into office, pirate delegates are free to make decisions according to their own conscience.


The European Pirate Party was officially founded on March 21st in Brussels, in the European Parliament. Chairperson of the first elected board is Swedish Pirate MEP Amelia Andersdotter. Co-vicechairpersons are Martina Pöser from Germany and Maxime Rouquet from France.

The European Pirate Party has given itself a manifesto which it highlights its ideals: high civil rights standards, better ways for citizens to participate in democracy, transparent institutions, a modern legal frame for copyright and patents for for the 21st century and a neutral network infrastructure that keeps individuals on level ground with mutlinational corporations.

To achieve this goal, the founding members of the European Pirate Party, the Pirate Parties of Europe, have given themselves a common election platform for the European election in May 2014. With a strong sense of freedom, bottom-up democracy and the knowledge that the information society has yet to be shaped for the benefit of all, the European Pirates are ready to take on the European challenge.


Common European Election Programme of the European Pirates for the Elections of the European Parliament in 2014



       The common goals of all European pirates.

       For a Europe without barriers. Borderless.


For favoing participatory action, the European Policy has to change:
- Shift decision-making authority from EU Commission (executive) towards EU Parliament (legislative)
- Eliminate unreasonable barriers to political participation
- Smaller amount of required supporter signatures for the acceptance of people’s initiatives and the formation of new parties

The basis for political decision-making of the EU must be traceable.

- Disclose the influence of interest groups & lobbyists
- Install Whistleblower protection: Comprehensive, legal protection of persons, who amongst others discover cases of corruption, insider trading, human rights violations and breaches of morality & ethics
- Disclose all contracts & monetary advantages relating to the government or the public sector

Our rights & freedoms must be preserved and the efficiency of law enforcement has to be guaranteed. The EU Data Protection Regulation has to strengthen relevant rights of EU citizens in all European countries, so that bypassing the guidelines (e.g. by headquarters in Ireland) can be prevented.

- Ban of indiscriminate personal identifications in public spaces without criminal suspicion – especially in connection with demonstrations
- Prohibition of mass surveillance & data retention
- Surveillance only allowed with a court order (and under judicial review)
- Fewer surveillance cameras – more police presence
- No capture & storage of biometric data of spotless citizens

We call for a moratorium on surveillance plans and demand a fundamental rights stamp.

The European Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) shall examine all current and future security programs of the EU and therefore be equipped with all relevant power.

- Moratorium on new monitoring systems until systematic review of FRA is complete
- Disestablish automatic ”profiling” of people (for classification into risk categories) and similar methods

- No exchange of personal data within & outside the EU without any initial suspicion
- No transfer of bank & passenger data
- No Eurosur border data collection
- No handling over of personal data to countries without effective protection of fundamental rights

We condemn all tendencies to determine asylum & refugee policy by a repressive apparatus of survey and control.

EU Neighbourhood Policy should lead to a sustainable improvement of living conditions and to a promotion of human rights in all partner countries.

We want a fair and balanced copyright law, which is based on the interests of society as a whole. The access to information, knowledge and culture has to be made easier.

- Free copying, using and deploying of art and literature for non-commercial purposes must be protected
- Monopoly rights must be limited to a reasonable amount of time
- National, fake barriers for cultural goods in the european single market must be abolished

Citizen data, stored in the public sector, shall be processed and managed with free software – proprietary software only in exceptional cases.

- Access must not be limited by fees, licenses or excessive application procedures
- Free and easy access to results of publicly funded research

Free knowledge & information flow is important and needs extra support for a barrier-free access to education.

- Strengthen development & promotion of free teaching materials
- Enhance digitalisation & publication of documents that are stored in public libraries and archives

- Strict standards for all industrial systems that process automated data
- Disclosing source code for those standards
- Quality control by experts of same field (peer-reviewed)

The existing patent system needs to be fundamentally reformed!

Patents serve to reward outstanding ideas – not to stifle the market with an ever-growing tide of trivial, overreaching patents.

- No patenting in genetics and biotechnology
- No monopoly on plants, seeds and works of nature
- No patenting on computer programs or business models
- No extension of patent protection by spurious changes of medicine

Innovation has to be fairly rewarded – this is also possible without monopoly rights!

- Promote pharmaceutical innovation by alternative financing methods
- Prevent practices such as paying competitors of patent owners in order to delay generics releases
- Break the direct link between research reward and drug price to ensure medicine to be affordable to everyone

Certain conditions concerning negotiations of the EU on trade agreements have to be met:
- Strong involvement of the European Parliament
- Comprehensive access to information and public hearings
- Respect for the citizens’ self-determination and privacy
- Taking the interests of small and medium-sized enterprises into account

Free and equal access to the internet is nowadays a prerequisite to participation in society.

- Include the right to receive ”digital participation” in the European Charter of Fundamental Rights
- Promote broadband expansion across the whole EU
- Ensuring non-discriminatory, anonymous access in the entire EU by introducing net neutrality (as an EU law)

We Pirates work for a United Europe, where all people are treated fairly and equally.

This approach rests upon more democracy, more citizen participation, a free Internet with free communication and the fight against human rights violations.
