Did you know that digital tech in Europe weighs more than all humans on Earth?

We have launched a study that looks into the environmental impacts of digital tech ➜ greens.eu/3pBa3NM

Patrick Breyer Digital freedom fighter and Member of European Parliament for the German and the European Pirate Party

Europe’s new voice of privacy and the free Internet

About me

I passionately defend human rights in the age of the digital revolution.
I have been active in the civil liberties movement for many years. In court I successfully contested the first German law on data retention and the law on access to subscriber data. I have sued for Internet surfers’ privacy and achieved access to information regarding Court documents in the EU Commission’s possession.

In the European Parliament, as a member of the Greens/European Free Alliance group, I work on issues including indiscriminate messaging and chat control, terrorist content online (TERREG) and the Digital Services Act (more responsibilities here).

Contact me

My office, ph. +32 228 45664, will answer telephone enquiries for me (e.g. press enquiries).

My priorities for Europe

Protecting human rights in the digital age


Right to privacy instead of mass surveillance and data retention – because it is nobody’s business, with whom you are in contact and which websites you visit.


Right to the free exchange of information and opinions – so that nobody censors or filters what you are allowed to read and write on the Internet.


Modern, fair copyright law – so that you can no longer be cashed in by lawyers.


Free software and free knowledge – because projects and ideas get better when everyone can work on them.


Right to free movement – because reintroducing border controls in Europe is the wrong way to go.

Update for Europe

As the “Robin Hood of politics” we want to give power back to the citizens


Disclosure of contacts between lobbyists and politicians in order to curb the influence of business on politics.


Publication of official documents instead of secret agreements (e.g. TTIP).


Citizen participation and direct democracy instead of backroom politics behind closed doors.


Protection instead of prosecution of whistleblowers.


Rule of law for everyone instead of private arbitration courts for corporations.
