Hi there,

    Universidad pirata is quite old  project, born in Barcelona around
2004. It has been moving from squat to squat in Barcelona, so they
finally renamed it to Universidad Nómada. For the program and workshops
going to be held, I guess Universidade Pirata is sharing some of their
members with the former UP.

    There is a direct link between the ones who organized this in Spain
and the ones organizing the Free Culture Forum and the Hackmeetings, but
as I said, nowadays it's original source isn't named pirata anymore...

Presentation of Universidad Pirata in London (Rampart, really nice and
cool people):


News about Police raid pushing them out of their last squat before
renaming (spanish):


Nowaday's website with links to similar groups:


    They are really nice, smart and active people.  I meet some of them
regularly, however, in my opinion (at least in Europe) they are too
linked to the squatter movement for the Pirate Party to get a close
relationship. I think it could easily damage our image between non
activists and give ammo to media to attack us and stigmatize as a
radical anti-globalization movement and all that shit they usually do.

    In any case, I think we can give our support to the events they
organize which match our principles as well :D
