This is a video in English about the Right to Strike rally in Sweden and the demonstration that was held on Saturday August 25 in Stockholm by anarchist and autonomous organizations, unions and individuals.
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
2000 people joined the demo. STRIKE BACK was a mass action with the purpose of defending worker’s rights in Sweden. Recently the heads of the swedish trade union confederacy made a deal with the employer’s confederacy severely limiting the right to strike. While it hasn’t been turned into law yet, any plausible government alternative after the election this September are likely to pass it.
We see this development as part of a larger pattern of impeding working class struggle across Europe, as seen in the development in countries such as France or Poland in the last years. See the call for the action here.
