Young Pirate: Young people and hacktivism

Ung Pirat is the youth organisation of the Swedish Pirate Party, organising
some 20000 youths from all over Sweden.

Ung Pirat is closely modelled on the classic idea of an organisation, in fact very much founded to fit the
image of a tried-and-tested organisational democratic model, yet its members tend to organise themselves in more or less unconventional ways not corresponding at all with the preconception of a functioning organisation.

In our program point we plan on presenting some ways in which different young pirates have chosen to organise themselves, and how the internet medium revolutionises the structures of youth activism.
