In February this year one of the Plan C members had a chance to sit down with a comrade from Autonom Organisering (AO) in Lund, southern Sweden. They talked about the Swedish political situation and AO’s wider network, the Autonomous Revolutionary Nordic Alliance (ARNA), who we first saw mobilising for the G20 in Hamburg.
During Tuesday AFA [antifa] Malmö participated in the manifestation of Revolutionary May Day in Malmö, where we also held a speech. The speech was prefaced by cheered news from the north, about how the [Nazi] Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR) failed their goals for May 1, and the Anti-Fascist counter-demonstrators in Boden reached several times larger numbers than the Nazis. The rest of the speech was about AFA, our history and the problems we face. We publish here in its entirety that part of the speech, which was held at Möllevångstorget [town square of the Möllevången neighborhood] on May Day 2018.
Announcement by the organizers of the Stockholm Anarchist Bookfair.
Ekot [Swedish public service radio news] has earlier told about the Court of Appeal not getting to see important evidence against one of the prosecuted Nazis in a bombing trial in Gothenburg. Ekot’s review also shows that this evidence was requested already in the District Court. Image above: Nobody was convicted for the bombing at Axel Adler’s street. Photo: Thomas Johansson/TT
When two Nazis were prosecuted for a bombing against a refugee housing in Gothenburg, the court was not allowed to see important evidence. That is shown by [Swedish public service radio news] Ekot’s review. The Nazis were acquitted in the Court of Appeal. Image above: Nobody was convicted for the bombing at Axel Adler’s street.

[Public service radio news] Ekot can today reveal that Nazis in the beginning of 2017 were able to place a bomb at a refugee housing in Gothenburg in spite of [Swedish Security Service] SÄPO having them under surveillance. One of the Nazis was a suspect for a previous bombing. Image above: Three Nazis were later convicted for the bombing. Photo: Tomas Oneborg/TT as well as the Police.
Between the 16 and 17 of June, the Anarchist bookfair will take place in Malmö, Sweden.
I was asked to write a piece for the Swedish anarchist magazine Brand about the resistance against the Nazi march in Gothenburg 30/9. The subject of the issue was joy and militancy, here you go!
“We live in a time when it is not only animal species that are disappearing; so too are the words, expressions, and gestures of human solidarity. A cloak of silence has been forcibly imposed on emancipatory struggle: the struggles of women, or of the unemployed, the ‘marginalized’, and immigrants – the new proletarians.” – Félix Guattari
