    Some 1,000 people on Saturday joined the Afghan youths who are holding a sit-down protest in Stockholm against Sweden’s deportations to Afghanistan. Participants in the Saturday demonstration formed a human chain in front of the youths in the Medborgarplatsen square in Stockholm, holding up white sheets of paper with red hearts on. The lone refugee youths have now been protesting for nearly two weeks, demanding Sweden stop deportations to Afghanistan. In an open letter to the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) Director-General Mikael Ribbenvik they ask: “Is Sweden really a moral country when you say to Swedes not to travel to...

    This is a refreshingly realistic appraisal — especially coming from Sweden — of who the agents of violence are in political demonstrations. Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation from Fria Tider: Police Chief: It is the extreme left that poses a problem ----------- The Nordic resistance movement, NMR, will not be the major problem when the national socialist organization demonstrates in Göteborg on 30 September. “On the contrary, it will be left-wing extremists who will start riots,” says Erik Nord’s Senior Officer to Radio Sweden. The Nordic resistance movement, NMR, has applied for a demonstration near the Bokmässan...

    The head of Sweden’s security police called the threat of terrorism in Europe the “new normal” on Friday as his Spanish counterparts continued to investigate Thursday’s deadly attacks in Spain. 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...
  • Sweden Destroys its History… It’s All Cultural Marxism

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    A story is emerging that has been verified by several news sites (although none of the US mainstream are covering it), that suggests Sweden is erasing its Viking past by quite literally destroying historical artifacts as they are found. If this is true, it is not only an assault on the history of the human race, but it is also a political assault on controlling the past to control the future. According to Svenska Dagbladet ( a Swedish language news agency), due to regulations, ancient ironwork (coins, bracelets etc…) are being sent away as scrap metal. For every 12 objects...
  • The First Snow of the Season Just Fell in Sweden

    08/16/2017 10:57:30 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 20 replies
    The first snow of the season has fallen in northern Sweden, but most of the country still remains flake-free. The snowfall came on Monday evening and in the early hours of Tuesday at the Låktatjåkko ski lodge, Sweden's highest mountain station at 1,228 metres above sea level. “We had a lot of snow last winter. It was a good season for skiing,” station attendant Henrietta Backman told regional newspaper Norrbottens-kuriren. There are still large patches of snow left over from last winter in the area, and it is not unusual for the first snow of the new season to fall...

    Government of Sweden ^ | 23 February 2017 · Updated 05 July 2017 | Government of Sweden
    Facts about migration and crime in Sweden In recent times, simplistic and occasionally completely inaccurate information about Sweden and Swedish migration policy has been disseminated. Here, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs looks at some of the most common claims. "Not long ago Sweden saw its first Islamic terrorist attack." Facts: The only known attempt at such an attack took place in 2010. Nobody other than the perpetrator was killed. The motives behind the attack in central Stockholm on 7 April 2017, in which five people were killed and a number of others were injured, are not fully clear, and...

    Stockholm (AFP) - Experts on Tuesday urged sightseers flocking to catch a glimpse of a rare white elk in Sweden to take care, warning that the animal could be dangerous. Video footage of the animal posted online has gone viral in recent days, prompting people to head for the central Varmland region where it was spotted. "Elks can get irritated,...and then they're dangerous," said Goran Ericsson, a professor of animal ecology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. "I would advise people to keep their distance," he told AFP. A typical elk weighed between 400 and 600 kilos (880 to...

    Swede Johan Gustafsson, who was kidnapped by al-Qaeda in Mali in 2011, has spoken publicly for the first time since his release this summer after almost six years in captivity. Gustafsson, from Värnamo, southern Sweden, returned home in June after five years and seven months in captivity in Mali. Sweden has refused to provide details about how his release was secured, describing it only as the result of “years of efforts” by police, diplomats and Swedish and international authorities. […] Gustafsson, 43, was abducted in Timbuktu, northern Mali, in November 2011 along with South African national Stephen McGown and Dutchman...

    Sweden is seeing an increasing number of families returning from fighting for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, but the children of extremist couples are not automatically taken into custody by the authorities. Swedish social services worker Bettan Byvald said that even if the agency could prove that the returning Islamic State supporters had taken their children to Syria or Iraq, they would not automatically take the children into protective custody. The policies toward returning Islamic State fighters in Sweden have been controversial due to the fact that many municipalities have expressed a desire to reintegrate returning fighters. The...

    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. The group that interrupted the march is thought to be connected to right-wing extremist network Nordisk Ungdom (Nordic Youth), according to a report by Aftonbladet. “They interrupted the program and stopped the parade temporarily,” Mats Eriksson of Stockholm Police told TT. Eriksson confirmed that the people were “protesting”, but...

    How should Sweden's municipalities "take care of returning families that fight for IS"? That question poses Sweden's Radio on Wednesday. The response from social services varies depending on where in Sweden you ask. Now all the families return as a battle for the Islamic terrorist sect IS. But how the families are "taken care of" by the Swedish social service differs across the country, reports Ekot. In Gothenburg, the social services are van and when the terrorist families return with children, "social workers" fools to get them into the system and make sure they are doing well. {..snip..}
  • Raised Without Gender (Sweden)

    With recent victories for the trans rights movement and more young people defining as something other than “male” or “female” than ever before, VICE host Amelia Abraham goes to Sweden - the world’s most forward thinking country when it comes to questioning gender - to find out what it’s like to grow up without the gender binary. In Sweden, the gender neutral pronoun “hen” has been in the national dictionary since 2015 and is now commonly used by most Swedes, the Swedish government’s school plan has since 1998 forbidden enforcing gender stereotypes, and government funded gender neutral kindergartens with gender...

    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. A reveler reported being robbed of their mobile phone at a bar in the popular Södermalm district of Stockholm at around 2 am on Monday, getting hit in the face when trying to get their phone back. The victim did not need an ambulance, said police. The suspects, two young boys, ran off but were caught by police. An hour later, youths on a bike tried to...

    The Swedish government has admitted to a huge data leak made by one of its own departments during an IT outsourcing procedure in 2015. Sweden's prime minister said it was "a disaster", Swedish media reported. Reports say that confidential data about military personnel, along with defence plans and witness protection details, were exposed by the Transport Agency. They were visible to workers without security clearance during the transfer. Last month, the agency's former director general Maria Agren, who left her role in January, was fined 70,000 Swedish krona (£6,500, $8,500).

    Sweden’s Transport Agency moved all of its data to “the cloud”, apparently unaware that there is no cloud, only somebody else’s computer. In doing so, it exposed and leaked every conceivable top secret database: fighter pilots, SEAL team operators, police suspects, people under witness relocation. Names, photos, and home addresses: the list is just getting started. The responsible director has been found guilty in criminal court of the whole affair, and sentenced to the harshest sentence ever seen in Swedish government: she was docked half a month’s paycheck Many governments have had partial leaks in terms of method (Snowden) or...

    When President Barack Obama visited Sweden last year, he expressed his deep admiration for the Swedish model. But that should make Americans a little nervous. One U.N. report says Sweden will be a third-world nation in about 15 years, below Libya and Bulgaria. Sweden is a society that believes it is racing into the future, but critics warn that it is racing to the bottom.

    Sweden on brink of civil war, National Police Chief: “Help us, help us!” Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, spoke on national television and pleaded for assistance: “Help us, help us!,” he said, while warning that Swedish police forces no longer can uphold the law and therefore must ask all "good powers" in the country to support them, reports Nicolai Sennels of Jihad Watch. A leaked report concluded that the number of lawless areas (commonly referred to as “no-go zones”) in Sweden now totals 61, up from 55 in just one year’s time. This increase represents not only the total...

    A Muslim school in Sweden that separated pupils by gender on a school bus did not break anti-discrimination laws in doing so, the country’s Discrimination Ombudsman (DO) has judged. But the same could not be said about gender segregated sports lessons. Earlier this year, a documentary by Swedish broadcaster TV4 featured footage of the privately-run Al-Azhar Primary School in a Stockholm suburb, showing boys entering a bus from the front, and girls from the back. It led to criticism from politicians, including Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, and an investigation by Sweden’s Discrimination Ombudsman. The school explained that some of...

    A Swedish council has admitted that local libraries have been throwing out copies of a popular children’s book because it contains racist expressions, with one local journalist even claiming the books are being burnt. Older versions of the Pippi Langstrumpf [Pippi Longstocking] book entitled ‘Pippi in the South Seas,’ have been discarded by libraries in the Botkyrka municipality.
