Pirate Party backs #VotesAt16 in the EU referendum and future elections

Full NEC election: the Pirate Party needs you!

Dear Pirates,

Every position on the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Pirate Party UK is now up for election!

This is a constitutional requirement: full NEC elections must be held every 25 months, regardless of how long individual officers have been in post. The last election was held at this time in 2013.

Several members of the current NEC have announced that they do not intend to stand for re-election to the same position. These are Cris Chesha (Party Leader), Sam Clark (Treasurer), and me (George Walkden, Nominating Officer). All these posts, and all other posts (Campaigns Officer, Deputy Leader, Secretary), are up for election.

We're between major UK elections, and the party is in need of new blood and new ideas. If you'd like to put your name forward, take a look at this page! You'll need to be a member and to be seconded by a current member in good standing. You can often find a seconder on the Community candidates page.

The timetable of the election is as follows:

Field Report: Pirate Bloc - Tory Party Conference demo 4/10/2015

Over the last week, the Tory party had their conference in Manchester. On Sunday 4th October, 60,000 people took to the streets to protest, organised by the People's Assembly Against Austerity. We joined them as the Pirate Bloc, with some help from our friends over at the Manchester branch of Open Rights Group. We broadcast a lot of the march live on Periscope, and there are a number of videos saved on Bambuser, but we also have a few pictures to share with you.

EU Court of Justice Invalidates "Safe Harbor" Agreement

Tuesday, 6 October, 2015 - 13:15

In a landmark ruling today the Court of Justice of the European Union found that the current 'Safe Harbor' agreement (which underpins the vast majority of the transfer of data from the EU to the US) is invalid. This ruling strikes an important blow for data protection for EU citizens.
Safe Harbor has long been used by large corporations to justify transferring data out of UK and EU datacentres, into US based locations. By using "Safe Harbor", companies agree to be bound by the same restrictions as they have in the US, despite not being explicitly required to do so by US law.
