Germany's Pirate Party, which primarily champions Internet freedom, has set some notable records in its short career, and no other party has gained so many supporters in such a short period of time. Since its first electoral victory in Berlin state elections last September, the party has steadily risen in the polls, recently reaching 13 percent in support at the national level. Here, the party's Berlin parliamentary group meets for the first time, in September 2011.
