Subcity turns pirate

debate is free talks to the swedish pirate party
It's a new era here at Subcity, it's no longer just about the music but things like news and politics and current affairs and things.
So to kick off the new show Debate is Free, we decided to do something out there, something daring, something right at the cutting edge. Something that will send the geeks amongst you crazy. So we decided to have a chat to some pirates. The Swedish Pirate Party to be exact.
We are going to be talking to Christian Engström, the Swedish Pirate Party's Member of the European Parliament and we need you to send in some questions for the man so we can be all professional like.
The Pirate Party sets out to achieve three things: first, reform of copyright law to allow the internet to become a tool for free cultural exchange; second, to abolish the current patent system to prevent advances in science, technology and manufacturing being restricted to certain parts of the world; and third, to promote more respect for the right to privacy, something which they believe has been lost in recent years through the increase in surveillance technology.
You can expect more interviews like this from Debate is Free all year round so get involved with us. Submit questions for our advertised guests or suggest a guest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
