Pictures from the Anti-ACTA protest in Hannover, 11th Feb 2012 :D
It was really cool -we need to practice the shouting more (and really get some foot-warmers next time) but apart from the Nazi-interruption in the beginning, the demo was fucking awesome! Estimated are 5.000 people in Hannover alone, in Munich it’s said to have been over 16.000, go internet!
Noone will be able to ignore us now~
//lol: Hannover’s shops were out of Guy Fawkes Masks from morning on xD
On February 11, the world will be out in an unprecedented showing of solidarity against ACTA. Protests are being organized all over the globe to show the European Parliament that they must reject ACTA. Though many countries have signed the treaty already, if the EP rejects ACTA, it will be sent into the dustbin on history!
It’s time we wielded the internet to defend the internet! Look below to see a list and map of where the protests are being held. Here’s what you can do:
- If you want to attend one of the events below, click the link and RSVP (There are demonstrations listed for other days as well, so please double-check the date)
- If you know of another protest that is not listed, please let us know at email@example.com
- If you want to start your own protest, even if you live outside of Europe, create an Event on Facebook and then send us the link to the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And be sure to sign the petition calling on the EP to vote NO on ACTA:https://www.accessnow.org/acta

Year of the storm
2012 is the year of the storm.
The Pirate Bay will reach an age of 9 years. Experiencing raids, espionage and death threats, we’re still here. We’ve been through hell and back and it has made us tougher than ever.
The people running the site has changed during the years. No sane human being would put up with this kind of pressure for 8 years in a row. An insane hobby that takes time from our families, our work (sorry boss) and our studies.
What binds us all together is a strong belief that what we do is good. That it is something we one day can tell our grandchildren about with pride. People from all over the world confirm this. We read testimonials from people in Syria longing for freedom, thanking us for what we provide. We receive more than 100 visits daily from North Korea and we sure know that they need it. If there’s something that will bring peace to this world it is the understanding and appreciation of your fellow man. What better way to do that than with this vast library of culture?
With this said, we hear news from our old admins that they have received a verdict in Sweden. Our 3 friends and blood brothers have been sentenced to prison. This might sound worse than it is. Since no one of them no longer lives in Sweden, they won’t go to jail. They are as free today as they were yesterday.
But what enrages us to our inner core is that the system, the empire, the governments, are still allowed to try to boss you and us around with one law crazier than the other. Do you think they will stop with SOPA/ACTA/PIPA? They will not. Because you won’t stop sharing those files. Because we will not stay down. Because no one can turn back time. Together, we are the iron that hardens with each strike.
In this year of the storm, the winners will build windmills and the losers will raise shelters. So flex your muscles, fellow pirates, and give power to us all! Build more sites! More nets! More protocols! Scream louder than ever and take it to the next level!”
