75 years – Universal Declaration of Human Rights – we declare:

75 years after the promulgation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights [1], as a pirate movement, we renew our commitment to the defense and promotion of the rights established in the 1948 text and the treaties that have followed, which enshrine the ethical minimums we want for all people, communities and countries.

We reinforce our work to overthrow all discrimination and subjugation of human beings by States, corporations and individuals.

We call on the international community to continue working to co-construct a world that guarantees the dignity and freedom of individuals and communities, based on the collaboration of peoples in solidarity.

At a time when greed and lust for power seem to plunge the planet into a frenzied spiral of violence and violation of the most basic rights, the pirate movement (those of us who sign here), will continue to fight to improve our societies and face the environmental, social and economic challenges that affect us as a global community; acting in solidarity with countries with weak democracies or captured by anti-democratic and extremist sectors.

(Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized. Article 28, Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

Common Declaration of the General Assembly of Pirate Parties International on Dec. 9th, 2023.
