    YPJ spokeswoman and commander Nesrin Abdullah is in Stockholm for diplomatic talks. Speaking at a press conference in the Swedish parliament, Nesrin Abdullah, spokeswoman and commander for the Women's Defense Units (YPJ) in Rojava, drew attention to the Turkish regime's intention to carry out a genocide on the population in Afrin with jihadist militias. Nesrin Abdullah explained to numerous journalists that in Afrin so far, a peaceful coexistence of different ethnic groups and faiths has taken place. "For 20 days, the NATO member Turkey has been attacking Afrin in front of the world public. These attacks are contrary to international...

    Whether we agree with their beliefs or not, Gay Pride Parades (for the most part) are well… gay. Happy. Bright. Enthusiastic and peaceful. They march around with rainbow flags, wear really weird clothing, and tell everybody how proud they are to be gay. Annoying? Most certainly, especially if you feel as though they’re shoving an agenda down your throat. But these marches tend to keep it fairly peaceful. When you start putting Sweden, Muslims, and Antifa into the mix, however, you have a recipe for disaster. Recently in Stockholm Sweden, a Gay pride event was held that caused a bit...

The first murder investigation began in January 2017, when a seriously injured man turned up to Karolinska University Hospital and told staff he had been shot at a garage but managed to escape. The victim said he was...

    Stockholm police announced a plan to place hundreds of microphones in the Järva area of Stockholm in order to automatically alert authorities to crimes in progress as they can identify screams and other sounds. The project is the first of its kind in Sweden and will see hundreds of microphones placed in Järva, a heavily migrant-populated suburb of Stockholm considered to be a no-go zone by many. The microphones will be able to automatically differentiate various sounds and when they hear particular sounds, like a woman screaming gunshots or explosions, the microphones should automatically alert police in the area through...

There were no immediate reports of any Swedish nationals injured when vans drove into pedestrians in Barcelona and Cambrils, killing at least 14 and wounding some 100 others, but citizens from more than 30 countries were among the dead and wounded, reported The Local Spain. Sweden’s security services Säpo said they were ready to offer assistance if needed. “Our thoughts go to those affected by the attacks in Spain and...

    Around 15 people reportedly connected to a right-wing extremist group briefly stopped the Stockholm Pride event, which saw 45,000 participants and thousands more Stockholmers celebrating in the city. The parade, which passed through the Swedish capital’s Östermalm neighbourhood, was briefly stopped at around 2:45pm by right-wing extremists, reports news agency TT.

Eriksson confirmed that the people were “protesting”, but...

    Police have raised concern after groups of youths aged under 15 — one thought to be as young as nine — were caught robbing or trying to rob people in Stockholm last night.

[…] The lights will be situated around the Pride Park, which this year is located near the Stockholm Olympic Stadium in Östermalm. So far, reactions to the initiative have been “generally very positive,” [deputy mayor Daniel] Helldén said, with comments praising the...

    A group of Swedish football fans have launched a protest against a new ban on wearing masks at stadiums, exploiting an exception to the ban by wearing niqabs to cover their faces. On March 1st, the ban on wearing masks in the stands at Swedish football stadiums entered into force in an effort to combat violent behavior at games. Exceptions to the ban can be made however for people covering their faces in the line of duty like police, or people who cover their face for religious reasons. And it was the latter exception that some supporters of Stockholm club...

    A popular nightlife spot in Stockholm has put several of its club nights on hold following an increase in sexual assault, violence and thefts, the venue announced. “We had an enormous amount of messages, particularly from female guests, who complained of sexual harassment and bad attitudes,” Ingmari Pagenkemper, Managing and Artistic Director at the Södra Teatern club on Södermalm, told The Local. Security staff had regularly been ejecting people identified as gropers or troublemakers, she said — sometimes as many as 15 on a single night — but the combination of darkness, loud music, and a large venue occasionally made...

    TRAIN passengers were left with breathing problems in Sweden tonight after a masked man threw liquid on them as the carriage doors slammed shut - trapping them inside. The attack happened on a subway train at Sankt Eriksplan station in Stockholm, where emergency services rushed to the scene. One passenger onboard said commuters were left in a state of panic, most suffering from breathing problems and others desperately rushing for the exits. Reports initially stated the man threw a rucksack into the carriage, but Swedish police have confirmed it was a noxious liquid instead – the motives behind the incident...

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Swedish police say riots broke out overnight in a predominantly immigrant Stockholm suburb after officers arrested a suspect on drug charges. Spokesman Lars Bystrom said Tuesday that unidentified people, including some wearing masks, threw rocks at police, set cars on fire and looted shops in Rinkeby. One officer was slightly injured when hit by a rock. No arrests were made. Bystrom says one officer fired his gun, not as a warning shot but because he was "in a situation that demanded he used his firearm."

    Lefties have given us some really great theories, as long as they’re never put into practice. For example, do you like your doctor? If so: Have you kept your doctor? In related news, we’ve got plenty of precious snowflakes here in America. You might’ve seen them this past week, melting down over losing an election like it’s the first time such a thing has ever happened in the history of the world. But not all snowflakes are as easy to move aside, as the city of Stockholm has learned.
