Illa es multo irritate per leges que permitte que le governamento svedese intercepta su comunicationes in le cyberspatio e limita lo que le gente face in linea, e illa vole traducer su ultrage a in action.

“Internet nunc es–e io crede que illo sempre essera–un grande parte de mi vita”, diceva Westburg. “Le leges que regula le uso de Internet es multo hostil verso su usatores, e io vole luctar contra omne isto.”

Illo nunc ha circa 2,5% e sta a crescer assatis rapidemente, secundo Rickard Falkvinge, le leader del partito. “Nostre labores pro qualificar pro le parlamento svedese essera ardue”, diceva Falkvinge, “ma nostre campania ha construite un machina fantastic pro continuar su campania”.

Como un pais socialiste, Svedia ha dedicate multe ressources economic pro accesso rapide a Internet pro omne su population.

In le cultura svedese, il ha un concepto de “allemansratten”, o sia, le derecto de cata homine, que garanti le derecto de accesso physic pro cata citatano a omne le partes del campania svedese. Multe svedeses es convencite que le accesso a Internet debe esser identic a iste derecto.

Swedish youth form a party to campaign for cyberspace liberty.

She can’t vote, but Victoria Westburg, at the age of seventeen, dedicates a lot of her life to cyberspace. Now she is also dedicating herself to politics as a member of Piratpartiet (the Pirate Party). She is very irritated by laws that allow the Swedish government to intercept her communications in cyberspace and limit what people do on line, and she wants to translate her outrage into action.

“The Internet now is–and I believe it will always be–a great part of my life,” said Westburg. “The laws that regulate the use of the Internet are very hostile toward its users, and I want to fight against all this.”

So, with a click of her computer’s mouse, she joined the Pirate Party, a rather new political party whose only goal is to promote the free and completely unrestricted flow of information on the Web.

When the Pirate Party was born, almost nobody believed that it would be a serious movement. But no nobody is laughing now. This party has two seats representing Sweden in the parliament of the European Union, and it has inspired similar political parties in more than twenty other countries.

The Pirate Party now has about 49,000 members and is the third largest party in Sweden. It advocates the completely free use of the Internet, including an end to copyright laws, and this includes a right music and films as free as the access to books is in a public library.

According to the Swedish system, a party must win more than 5% of the votes in a national election to be qualified for seats in the Riksdag, the Swedish parliament. It now has around 2.5% and is growing rather rapidly, according to Rickard Falkvinge, the leader of the party. “Our work to qualify for the Swedish parliament will be hard,” Falkvinge said, “but our campaign has built a fantastic machine to continue its campaign.”

As a socialist country, Sweden has dedicated a lot of economic resources to provide for rapid access to the Internet for its entire population. And when Falkvinge founded the Pirate Party on Januay 1, 2006, Swedish activists started to resist copyright laws as it became easier to download music and films among individual computers using software that is derived from the efforts of Napster’s original programmer.

In May, 2006, the police of Stockholm invaded the offices of Pirate Bay, an organization that facilitates the interchange of software, music, films, and all other kinds of digital information, and for a limited period of time the Swedish authorities were able to suspend Pirate Bay’s activities, and some of its operators have been convicted of facilitating copyright-law violations.

Last year, the Riksdag approved laws that give Swedish intelligence authorities the right to intercept telephone calls and e-mail between Sweden and other countries in cases of national security. These new laws only inspired growing numbers of people to join the Pirate Party.

In Swedish culture, there is a concept of “allemansratten” (every man’s right), which guarantees direct physical access for every citizen to all parts of the Swedish countryside. Many Swedes are convinced that Internet access should be identical to this right.

In Sweden, people can join any political party at any age, but they can start to vote only at age eighteen. It is estimated that significant numbers of the members of the Pirate Party were born in 1990, and many believe that at an older age the members of this party will become more conservative. But Karl Palmas, a sociologist at the Chambers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, is convinced that the program of the Pirate Party is not going to disappear. The philosophy and the programs of this party, according to him, are definitely gaining momentum.

Long live the Pirate Party!
