    Stockholm

    After completing 50 public square meetings around the country in the last month, sometimes in two to three cities on one and the same day, AfS gathered in Kungsträdgården in Stockholm.

    The speakers did not appear tired, on the contrary, the energy was high, and party leader Gustav Kasselstrand told the cheering crowd that he would last for as long as possible.

    “You give me so much energy! We never back down!”

    The final meeting in Kungsträdgården was the 51st meeting on the campaign tour, which was referred to as the “return tour”. And the hard-hitting message was that at least half a million immigrants should be repatriated to their homelands.

    Several of the speakers mentioned that it was time to “drain the political swamp” in the Swedish parliament, in government and government administration.

    A very small counter demonstration with about 40 participants was held at the appropriate distance with police looking on.

    The final meeting was noted for the enthusiasm from the stage as well as from the audience.

    Aftonbladet, together with several other leftist newspapers, tried before the meeting to tell the public that the city of Stockholm had banned AfS from in Kungsträdgården. In reality, the city’s politicians had only scuppered a deal with the rental of the big stage. The gathering itself was handled by the police however and this could be not be cancelled at the whim of various opposition politicians.

    Several international speakers were invited to support AfS ahead of the election, including Frank Creyelman, former senator of Belgium for Vlaams Belang, Gianluca Cantalamessa, Member of La Lega, Naples, Italy, and Alessandro Sansoni, Italy.

    “Thanks Stockholm City, now we have saved 150 000 kronor to stand here, on our own stage, instead of ten meters further, on the Stockholm city stage!” said one of the speakers.

    The fact is, that AfS can now sue the city for a breach of contract, since Stockholm City had no legal right to break their agreement with the party, and they may face legal action amounting to a million kronor.

    The reason to break their agreement with the AfS, the opposition politicians argued, was that there would be riots and that one of the AfS speakers had been reported by the counter-demonstrators.

    In the AfS lawsuit, AfS emphasised that it was hardly possible to attack the attackers for order disturbances, and added that they had trusted the police to ensure that everything went smoothly – which in fact it did in Stockholm.

    In the city of Uddavalla, however, a member of the AfS was punched in the face by a young immigrant during an election campaign stop in Western Sweden, RT reported.

    When the AfS members started presenting their program, parliamentary candidate Markus Jonsson, was met by an angry crowd screaming: “Crush racism!” The mob assaulted Jonsson.

    The assailant first attacked another party member, prompting the parliamentary candidate to intervene. An RT crew present at the scene filmed the incident. The AfS members left as police detained the attacker, provoking further outrage.

    The mob also chased a car belonging to AfS. “When we stopped at the red light, they kicked the car,” Jonsson said.
