Photos, Footage From Election Win In Germany

Here is useful footage and photos from the Pirate Party’s election win in North Rhine-Westphalia. Free for any use.

All media here is public domain / CC-zero: any and all remix, cutting, republication and broadcast is not just permitted but explicitly encouraged. The whole point of supplying the world with this media is to make it easier to create stories about the Pirate Party, after all.

Photos and video were taken on Sunday May 13, at or around 18:00, at Zakk on Fichtelstrasse 40 in Düsseldorf.

First, here is some useful video footage of when the exit polls are presented. There are several good shots here – the countdown at 00:17, the exit poll results at 00:52, and some onward cheering later afterwards. This video is beautiful in full 1080p HD.

Some of the photos in the photoset from the party afterwards are just too good:
