Sweden: Socialists hit by night of office and home arsons

Tuesday 27th october 2015

ARSONISTS set alight the Gothenburg offices of Sweden’s Socialist Justice Party (RS) and members’ homes on Sunday.

The unidentified attackers pushed burning paper through the letterboxes at three members’ flats, including the home of RS western Sweden president Kristofer Lundberg, who is also chair of his local tenants’ association.

Children were present at two of the flats.

The stairwells, cellars and bin sheds of six other members’ homes were burned in addition to the local office.

The blazes were so serious it took firefighters two and a half hours to extinguish the flames.

Luckily, no-one was injured in the arson attacks in the Sandeslatt and Hammarkullen districts of Gothenburg, Sweden’s second city.

The RS said it suspected fascists of carrying out the attacks.

The incident follows a recent spate of suspected arson attacks on refugee camps in Sweden and the murder of a teacher and pupil at a school near Gothenburg last week.

Police believe the school attacker, who was shot dead by officers, had racist motives.

The latest arson attacks occurred late on Friday night at a centre for 60 refugees in Eskilstuna, 70 miles west of Stockholm, and another at Munkedal in the south-west of the country — which had already been damaged by a previous attack and had been cordoned off.

Those attacks brought the number of arsons against refugee centres to seven according to Russia Today, although the RS numbers them at more than ten.

Sweden has already taken in 100,000 refugees this year, with 90,000 more expected in the next two months.

The RS has already held a meeting of residents — which resolved to set up night-time neighbourhood watch patrols — and has called a demonstration against the attacks.

Mr Lundberg said that he returned from his stint as part of six-person patrol to find police at his home after a security guard stopped two men trying to enter his flat.

“We are still on red alert here,” he said.

Refugees in Austria, report

This video from Sweden says about itself:

9 September 2015

Tens of thousands of pro-refugee protesters rallied in Gothenburg’s Gotaplatsen Square, Wednesday, calling for the Swedish government to welcome refugees in the southern Swedish city. Gathering at the city’s famed Gotaplatsen square, the demonstrators bore banners calling for asylum seekers and economic refugees to be given sanctuary.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Refugees’ horror in Austria: ‘It’s not human. We are treating them like sheep in pens

Thousands of refugees are attempting to pass into the country from the Balkans

Jamie Merrill Spielfeld, Austria

3 hours ago

Less than two hundred metres from the chaos of the no man’s land between Austria and Slovenia, the Austrian army is trying to impose order.

Here at Spielfeld more than 150 Austrian police and 400 soldiers are shepherding up to 4,000 refugees a day onto a fleet of 60 buses. The buses head north to Graz, Vienna and Graz, another step on the journey to Germany, the final destination for most of the refugees travelling across Europe.

Austria has been criticised by authorities in Slovenia for the pace at which it is accepting refugees and earlier this week it briefly threatened to build a fence along its border, but police have been drafted in from across the country to deal with the numbers of arrivals.

Despite this, minor scuffles and pushing break out as Austrian soldiers struggle to keep family groups together as they load the refugees onto the buses.

Watching is Anna Brettchuh, a teacher who has travelled from Hamburg to hand out bread, milk and cookies with her seven-year-old son Leopold.

She said: “It’s horrible. I can’t believe what I’m seeing here and no locals are helping them. To think that the Austrians have talked about building a fence. It’s not human. We are treating them like sheep in pens. It’s hard to see but my son had a project on refugees at school and I think it is important he see’s this. It is important we all see it.“

Waiting by the line, grasping his Austrian identity card is Iraqi refugee Bashar Al Sadoun, 28. He arrived in Austria from Basra in May and somewhere in the mass of thousands of refugees on the border are his wife, two sons and sister-in-law. He has had on-off contact with his family on WhatsApp but now his wife’s smartphone battery has gone flat. She is somewhere in the mass of queuing refugees. “I will be so happy when they get here. I can take them to Salzburg. I will see my babies, I don’t care about anything else.”

As Mr Al Sadoun is talking, an Austrian police approache and tried to move him into the line of refugees, only stopping when he realised that he already has Austrian citizenship.

The policeman is Wolfgang Braunsar, the police spokesman for the border crossing. “Sorry”, he said. “I did not know. We have received 3,000 refugees today and we expect many more thousands this evening. We are doing the best we can to move them [to] other camps nearer [to] Germany where they can be cared for.”

Mr Al Sadoun will have to wait to see his wife. If and when he spots her in the ground he won’t be allowed to go to her, instead he will have to follow her bus and be reunited with her at the next camp. ”I will catch the train and follow her,“ he said. ”I will see her soon.“

Swedish nazis’ anti-refugee arson

This photo shows a relative of a schoolboy, murdered by nazi sword killer Anton Lundin Pettersson, mourning in Trollhättan, Sweden.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

Sweden will no longer say where the sites of new camps for refugees will be. According to Swedish media there was already thirteen times arson in (future) camps, making locations temporarily or permanently unusable.

The Swedish Migration Board says the new locations therefore will not be disclosed.

Sweden expects 160,000 applicants by refugees this year. In the past few weeks there have been scattered arson attacks, after which a municipality proposed not to disclose the locations. The Immigration Department called that idea last week unrealistic, but after two more fires changed its mind.


Also the murder by a man who killed two people at a school in Trollhättan with a sword plays a role in this. Most children in this school are of foreign origin.

Swedish school murderer Anton Lundin Pettersson

23 October 2015

He was dressed like Darth Vader as he killed a teacher and a student with a sword at a school in Trollhättan, Sweden. The horrifying attack happened at a high school in the city on the morning of October 22. The suspect has been named as Anton Lundin Pettersson, 21. Cops were called to the scene at 10:10 a.m. local time on October 22. In total, three people are dead, including Pettersson. Reports from Sweden indicate that two others are in stable but serious condition.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Students Posed for Photos With Pettersson Thinking He Was Dressed for Halloween

The BBC reports that the suspect is not known to local police in Trollhättan. The network says that he killed a student and a teacher at the school with a sword, while injuring another teacher and student. There was so much confusion during the attack that pupils at the Kronan School posed for photos with Pettersson, thinking it was all part of a Halloween joke.

He was shot and killed by responding police officers to the school. Pettersson was a resident of Trollhättan, according to his Facebook page. The two dead people were found at the entrance to the school. A police spokesperson said that more than one knife was used in the attack. He acted alone, reports Russia Today.

Speaking to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, a student at the school, using the pseudonym Sara, described that Pettersson was blaring “horrible, Halloween-type” music. When students left their classrooms they saw Pettersson, thinking it was a prank, the students went to take photos with him. After a teacher tried to move him along, Sara says Pettersson stabbed that man. Sara and her friends ran and although he chased them, they managed to escape.

A police spokesman, Thord Haraldsson said that Pettersson’s home has been searched by investigators and that officers found “interesting things,” according to the BBC report. Haraldsson didn’t comment about Pettersson’s links to Nazi extremism. Though Pettersson’s YouTube page shows an admiration for Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. The Local in Sweden reports that he was also critical of Islam and immigration. The Swedish newspaper Expressen reports that Pettersson was a subscriber to leading right-wing bloggers in the country.

The attack comes as the Swedish government confirmed that in 2015, the country will take in up to 190,000 asylum seekers, stemming from the refugee crisis in Syria.

Norway politician resigns after sword killer post

Published: 26 Oct 2015 10:15 GMT+01:00

A politician for Norway’s populist right-wing Progress Party

the party of which racist mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik used to be a member

has been forced to resign after posting on Facebook that he could ‘almost understand’ the 21-year-old Swede who unleashed a brutal sword attack at a school on Thursday.

Claus Forberg, 76, who serves in the city council in Kragerø, southern Norway, resigned from the party on Monday.

Forsberg on Friday wrote on a closed Facebook page that he “could almost understand that Swedish fool who ran amok at school with a sword.” He added that he had only called the Swedish killer “a fool” because he had worn a mask.

The apparent approval of the attack by 21-year-old Swede Anton Lundin-Pettersson, which left a 21-year-old teaching assistant and a 15-year-old student dead, was immediately condemned by his own party.

Lundin-Pettersson, a computer gamer who dressed only in black or camouflaged clothes, died on Thursday after being shot by police at the end of his attack. According to Swedish police, he selected his victims by skin colour.

Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg also said it was “totally unacceptable” for politicians to give any support to violence.

“It is legitimate to discuss politics and express the worries many have, but it is not legitimate to incite violence or give support to violence,” she said.

But Forberg was initially unapologetic, arguing that the failure of governments in Sweden and Norway to control immigration from Muslim countries was forcing people into drastic acts.

He blamed “the politics that are conducted in Norway in Sweden,” where “people give in to Muslims” for the attack.

“The Muslims are in the process of changing Norwegian society,” he wrote.

He told Norway’s ABC news that he himself thought of carrying out similar attacks.

“I can also fantasise about taking the lives of some Arabs,” he said.

Only later, when he realised the extent of the opposition his remarks had triggered, did he admit any fault.

Forberg made his remarks on the “Stop the extreme mass immigration” Facebook group, which is only visible to members.

Swedish police on Friday confirmed that Anton Lundin-Pettersson’s attack was a “hate crime” with victims selected on the basis of their skin colour.

As well as killing two, the 21-year-old wounded three others before he was shot by Swedish police.

Sweden school attack: horror as sword attacker kills teacher and pupil

Sweden has reacted with shock and horror after a teacher and pupil were stabbed to death in a school with a high number of immigrants by a masked man who was reported to have far-right sympathies. The man, who posed with students before starting his killing spree, was shot dead by police.

He was named in Swedish media as 21-year-old Anton Lundin Pettersson.

There were scenes of panic in Trollhättan, an industrial city near Gothenburg, on Thursday as parents and pupils crowded outside Kronan school in the aftermath of the killings among large numbers of police and ambulances.

“It is a black day for Sweden,” said the prime minister, Stefan Löfven, before rushing to the city.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

School attacker in Sweden had racist motive

Today, 08:41

The man who yesterday stabbed two people to death at a school in Trolhättan had a racist motive. The 21-year-old perpetrator, who himself lived in the town, deliberately chose victims of foreign origin, Swedish police reports. Also, based on unnamed discoveries in the house of the man and his manner of dress and action, police call this a “hate crime”.

According to the Swedish anti-racism magazine Expo the culprit last month showed sympathy for far-right and anti-immigration movements. A few weeks ago he watched, eg, a German Nazi propaganda film on YouTube.


The masked man yesterday invaded a school in Trollhättan town with a sword with which he stabbed pupils and teachers. A teacher and a student were killed. A student and another teacher were seriously injured. The police shot the 21-year-old perpetrator dead.

The students first thought it was a joke when the man entered the building. He wore black clothes and had a Star Wars mask on. Only when he started waving his arms, they realised how dangerous the situation was. Just before his deed the man posed for a picture with two students.


The attacker grew up in Trollhättan and went to a technical school. After he graduated, he moved into an apartment a few kilometers from the school. There is no known connection between him and the school where he committed the murders.

Most students of the affected school are of foreign origin. They are between 6 and 16 years old.

The attacker entered the school through the lobby café, which is open to everyone. Then he knocked on the door of two classrooms.

Swedish police shared details on Friday about a 21-year-old Hitler admirer with far-right sympathies who killed a teacher and teenager at an immigrant-heavy Trollhättan school: here.

Swedish crime author Henning Mankell, of Kurt Wallander books, dies

Henning Mankell‘s Wallander S1 (Trailer)

28 April 2012

Krister Henriksson stars as author Henning Mankell’s Detective Kurt Wallander. Season One features the movie version of Mankell’s bestselling crime novel “Before The Frost” and includes twelve more 90-minute mysteries based on original stories by Mankell.

From the BBC today:

Wallander writer Henning Mankell dies

Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell, best known for novels featuring Inspector Kurt Wallander, dies aged 67

The writer revealed he had cancer in a newspaper column last year, adding: “My anxiety is very profound.”

He dealt with the experience in his most recent book Quicksand: What It Means To Be A Human Being.

His best-selling mystery novels, which follow policeman Kurt Wallander through Sweden and Mozambique, were turned into a TV drama starring Kenneth Branagh.

The original, Swedish version of the drama starred Krister Henriksson in the title role, and was screened in the UK on BBC Four.

By Carolyn, San Francisco, California, USA, 8 September 2010:

I am sorry that you devoted no more than a few comments on Henning Mankell’s Wallander series. I find that his thoughts about the decay of Swedish society, transmuted into the thoughts of the character Wallander are illuminative of the state of mind in many Swedes today. I find the character of Wallander to be humane and sympathetic and his flaws to be human.

True, the Wallander series is of the police procedural genre, but I find his portrayals of them as no more or less than human beings in a certain situation and profession, without resorting to caricature as is the case in so many “cop” novels, to be refreshing. Mankell has a long history of working against social injustice and has obviously thought long and deeply of what is happening in the society around him. He is exactly my age—postwar, born in 1948—and has grown and matured in the same world society as I have. …

the very violence of the early 21st century has created an incubator for the ideas of violence and retribution as a response to society’s ills. Naturally, the incubation has been the result of a failure of political perspective, leaving people—particularly youth—with the sense that society and its institutions have failed them and therefore that nothing remains but to strike back (or even before) they become victims themselves.

There are plenty of reasons for this, most particularly the capitalist system and the viciousness with which it declares “every man for himself”. If entire generations have been exposed to nothing else, their desperation will become a danger to themselves and others. Henning Mankell has his Wallander ruminate on this idea many times in his stories. Wallander stands aghast at what is happening in his country. It is true that the author and his character have no (stated) idea of how to solve the problem, but they each closely observe the phenomena surrounding them.

This is a start.
