Over 3 000 members
The police razzia against The Pirate Bay has increased the member count with about 35% [as of this translation, it's over 50%!]. From roughly 2 200 members yesterday afternoon, to over 3 000 members 24 hours later.
- The criticism is unanimous from an absolute majority of swedish Internet users. This razzia is a legal outrage, an attack against an open and free society of information, a severe violation, especially for the young. They feel prosecuted and choose to become members of the party. If this increase in numbers continues, we'll soon be the largest youth party of the country, Rickard Falkvinge, leader of the Pirate party, explains.

Most of the groups listed in the comparison are youth organisations of the established riksdag parties. The exclusions are Feministiskt Initiativ, a new party aiming at feminism only, Ezenhemmer, which was a spoof party popular with modem users back in '94, and Miljöpartiet, which is one of the seven parties in the riksdag. We're catching up!!
..and now, I'm done. I hope. :)
