Sure. But I think for Piratenpartei it would be more effective to put the
bit of money we have into election campaigns
I wasn't suggesting the Pirate Party itself do this. My idea is that
it would be done independently.
in order to change the stupid
laws instead of fighting them by ignoring them
A campaign urging people to defy this law is a way of building
opposition to the law.
The fund's main activity would be to pay people's fines,
but in order to do that, it would have to spread the word about
the injustice of this law, and that would also teach the public.
