From the start, Pirate Party founder Timo Vuorinen’s plan was to have the party succeed by turning ordinary people into pirates.
Now, Vuorisen has succeeded.
In a move that could set the party up for the next political revolution, Vuoriinen is putting his name to a political party that aims to become the next government of Finland.
Vuorisiens new party is called Pirate Party, which stands for Free Pirates.
Vuorien told VICE News that his idea was inspired by the Pirate Bay, a Swedish online piracy site.
“In the last year, the Pirate Barons [the Swedish Pirate Party] have been growing by about 50 percent, and I saw a trend of people who want to become Pirate Party members, to join a political group,” Vuoriens said.
“That was the idea behind the Pirate Parties slogan.”
Vuoriennen said that the party is focused on the issues that interest Finnish society, and that he hopes the party will eventually win elections.
The Pirate Party was founded in 2014 by a Finnish-born entrepreneur named Timo Huusuli.
The party’s first election, in November, was won by former Prime Minister Juha Sipila, who won with the support of the left-wing Finnish Left Party and the Pirate Movement.
Vuormund Pulkkinen, the leader of the Left Party, is one of the few former Pirate Party officials to join the Pirate party.
Pulkkainen told Vice News that he sees Vuoriniens ideas as a good approach for the future of the Finnish economy.
“Pirate Party is a good solution to the problem of unemployment, the problems caused by globalization, globalization, climate change, the fact that we are getting more and more disconnected from each other,” Pulkkanen said.
“[Vuorinen] is taking a good idea from the Pirate barons and putting it into practice in a very efficient way.”
According to Vuorinis’ website, the party aims to provide “a safe space for people to be their authentic selves.”
The Pirate party is hoping to attract people who have never had a political affiliation before.
According to the website, many Pirate Party supporters are “young people who don’t know what it means to be a Pirate.”
They feel a strong sense of responsibility and want to contribute to the country, the site says.
Vuorianen said he sees a big opportunity in the party, but added that there is a lot of work to do.
“We are very ambitious, we want to do this for a long time, so we need to do the work,” Vuorianinen said.
He said he hopes that Pirate Party will be able to win the next election.
“I think that the Pirate movement is growing, so that there are people who are willing to fight for these issues and that’s good for our country,” Vuoronen said.
Pukkainens hope that Pirate party will have a future in Finland and in Europe.
“The party is part of a trend, that it is gaining support, and we are seeing a trend towards a new kind of politics,” Pukkanen added.
The leader of Finland’s Left Party says that the Pirates party could also be an alternative to the traditional parties.
“As long as we keep talking about the ‘no’ votes, we are going to keep on seeing this kind of polarization,” Puska said.
The Left Party said that it would support the Pirate parties campaign and support them in their goal of getting their own candidates elected.
