Pirate Party of Berlin

The Pirate Party Berlin (German: Piratenpartei Berlin) is the state chapter of the Pirate Party Germany in the city-state of Berlin and was the first chapter of the Pirates to enter a Landtag (state parliament), getting elected to the Abgeordnetenhaus of Berlin in 2011. The party divides itself into so-called Crews (self-organizing units) at the local level. Work groups on specific themes are called Squads.[2] Since 2010, the national association has used the software LiquidFeedback for intra-party decision-making.[3]
