The Pirate Bay Issue - English Translation

Demonstrations ahoy!

It appears a couple of demonstrations will take place tomorrow, on June 3rd, in Stockholm and Göteborg (the two largest cities in Sweden; Göteborg may be called Gothenburg in English). They will be arranged by mainly by Piratbyrån and the Pirate Party in Stockholm and Gothenburg, respectively, but there are some youth sections of the established riksdag parties that will be there showing their support, too.

The demands are that all the seized servers are returned, all investigations are dropped, and that the DNA samples be destroyed. They also demand explanations from everyone responsible, in extension minister of law Thomas Bodström.

Sympathizers have been told to bring CD's and a good mood, and while they are encouraged to leave their sabres at home, parrots are welcome.

  • I am from the USA, where all of this sh!t with the RIAA/MPAA started. I would give my right nut to go to Sweden and as a show of support for TPB at their demonstration on Saturday. The TPB has a very strong and loyal following here in the States, and we wish them the best in this fight. We know you'll be triumphant!

  • Hey. Thanks for translating all this for us english readers. Why do you call yourselfs pirates, though? I don't think file sharing really makes anyone a pirate. In this day and age, it's just a label given to those who share files to make the double A cartels look like the good guys in the public eye.

  • you guys are showing the rest of the world how to stand up against a rotten establishment if all the other countries in the world had the guts to do what you guys are the world would be a much better place.

    Get them servers back
    get the peaple responsible for causing this trouble punished for it
    and make sure that DNA sample is destroyed.
