The Pirate Party was founded on a set of core principles, with a goal of challenging conventional politics and protecting the people's rights.
The party has come an incredibly long way since its start in 2009, relying solely on the help of the community that believes this is the way forward, and unlike many other minor parties, we are still growing stronger.
Along with crowdsourcing its policies, the party has relied on small-scale donations, in stark contrast to larger parties that have accepted money from questionable sources and wealthy benefactors.
This is where we need all hands on deck to make a difference in the 2017 snap election called by the Tories. Theresa May seeks to solidify a Tory government until 2022, continuing her rule of unsolicited privacy violations against the people such as the Snooper's Charter that was frivolously pushed through - but this presents us with an opportunity.
We can make a difference, but we need your support.
- £5 can pay for our phone calls during an election campaign.
- £50 can get us 1,500 election leaflets to deliver.
- £500 can run a Pirate for Parliament.
We are already receiving calls en masse to stand Pirates in many constituencies, but we need your help to make this happen. Donate here to help: https://pirateparty.org.uk/donation
If you are unable to give monetary support, we would welcome your help in other areas. Become a volunteer and help the party with things like Social Media and Website Support. Full details can be found here: https://pirateparty.org.uk/campaigns/volunteer
The most important thing you can do for us is spread the Pirate message. Let your friends and family know about the Pirate Party and our principles, so that they can, if they want to, support us as well.
Last, but by no means least, if you are interested in standing as a candidate, please get in touch with the Nominations team (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible to discuss what's needed.
Thanks in advance for your support - whatever form that takes.
Mark Chapman - Deputy Nominations Officer
