My name is Amelia Andersdotter and I am 21 years old. I study Economics and Spanish at Lund University in southern Sweden. I am one of the top candidates in the 2009 European Parliament elections for Piratpartiet (the Swedish Pirate Party).
My political ambitions include a thorough revision and change of the copyright legislation, a complete removal of the patent system and a more balanced approach to security, safety and the market versus privacy, where the latter in particular needs to be taken much more into consideration. I believe in strong civil rights, even in a digital environment.
I have been working toward this end for some three years, beginning in the spring of 2006. During that period of time I have managed to take an active part in the development of Ung Pirat, the political youth organisation associated with Piratpartiet. I have also taken an active role in the development of the party's European political programme and the co-operation between Pirate Parties and Young Pirates organisations in Europe and around the world.
