[Stockholm] Freiheit für Joel!

Free Joel!

International call for solidarity! We, anti-fascists of Stockholm, call upon the international left-wing movement to show solidarity and support to one of our imprisoned comrades. He is in jail for defending a local community-organized anti-racist demonstration in the Kärrtorp area of Stockholm against a brutal nazi-attack on the 15th of December. Locals of all sorts, including parents with their children, elderly and youth, gathered in their neighbourhood to show strength against a nazi organisation that had been attacking local anti-racists and spreading nazi propaganda in schools in the area.


They gathered in a peaceful protest when they were attacked by the most militant nazi group in Sweden with knives, sticks and glass bottles. Anti-fascists at the scene defended the local families from the attack and were injured themselves. One of the anti-fascists got arrested by the police a few days later altough the anti-fascists did nothing but defend themselves.


A week later, on the 22nd of December, the largest manifestation in modern history in Sweden against racism and nazism took place in the same area. Around 20.000 people gathered with a clear message: Nazis are not welcome in our society!


Altough the left-wing people of Stockholm showed strength we need your solidarity, your solidarity actions and your letters to our imprisoned comrade!

Am 22., nicht am 15. Dezember.

Hab mich verlesen...stimmt doch

Nein, du hast Recht. Die Bilder mit den vielen Menschen auf dem Sportplatz und der Antifaschistin mit den Plakaten sind vom 22. Dezember, alle anderen vom 15. Dezember. Der Text ist aber auch ein bisschen komisch geschrieben, find ich jedenfalls.
