False Globalisation

Propaganda Lives On

The presence of the spectre of the TPP, TTIP and TISA secretive ‘trade’ deals (and many other such deals like them) would lead anyone to think that the world is becoming increasingly homogenised for corporate purposes, that a grand unification of the hundreds of countries into one subservient consumer mass is already underway and importantly that no-one either can or should do anything to stop this. Coca-Cola and Pepsi bottles and cans can be found the world over, every city has a McDonald’s or ten and why would any country wish to impede this availability of consumer familiarity that everyone knows and loves (to hate)? Why indeed?

Transparency

Disclosure of influence on political decisions

PIRATES call for the disclosure of the influence of interest groups and lobbyists on political decisions to protect the democratic process and to make the basis of decisions transparent.

Whistle-blower Protection Law

PIRATES advocate for general and comprehensive legislation to protect persons who expose issues that are in the public interest, such as cases of corruption, insider trading, or ethics or human rights violations (“whistle-blowers”).
