Pirate Parties from all over Europe descended upon Austria’s capital. The reason — the first ever International Pirate Party Conference.
The aim of the event was to help form a collaborative alliance between the various parties in Europe and beyond. In addition, a public discussion talked about the future plans including running for the European Parliament in 2009
“We’re striving to do what’s necessary,” states Florian Hufsky, head of Austrian Pirate Party. “To preserve the right to privacy, to communicate without eavesdropping. The right to remix, share, create and participate in culture and innovation.”
