34 MEPs sign free software pledge

34 of the MEPs elected in June this year have signed the Free Software Pact:

Of the 232 candidates for the European Parliament that pledged their support for free and open source software, 34 have been elected, from Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The Free Software Pact commits MEPs to support free software; the list of those who’ve signed is here. The UK MEPs who signed are Caroline Lucas and Jean Lambert of the Greens and Nigel Farage of UKIP. On behalf of the Pirate Party UK I’d like to thank Lucas, Lambert and Farage for supporting some of our principles.
