Avaaz has just launched a new tool to allow any Avaaz
member to instantly start their own petitions. But we’re a democratic community
of more than 14 million people, and will only support petitions that our
community agrees are not offensive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable.
Can you take one minute to let us know if you support Avaaz featuring
the following member-generated petition?
Petition: Grant Peter
Sunde's (of The Pirate Bay) plea for pardon
A few days ago, Peter “Brokep” Sunde – the former media spokesperson
of The Pirate Bay – sent a formal plea for pardon to the Swedish Administration.
This is a procedure where you can get a judicial sentencing undone by the
political administration in exceptional circumstances. On April 17, 2009, a
verdict was handed down that led the world to blank stares of disbelief, then
furious anger. The two operators of The Pirate Bay, its media spokesperson, and
a fourth unrelated person were sentenced to one year in jail each and damages
that, by now, well exceed 10 million euros. This was essentially a declaration
of war against an entire generation. The case was appealed and lost, and the
Supreme Court denied to hear the case, to everybody’s surprise except the
establishment’s. This Petition is to make the Swedish government grant Peter's
Plea for pardon. What do you think of this
I support Avaaz providing people the opportunity to sign this petition
I think Avaaz should remove this petition

Your input will be kept confidential, and will help
ensure that this new initiative reflects the views of the whole Avaaz community.
