Salem/Stockholm/Sweden 9th December 2006: Antifascist rally against biggest annual fascist march in Europe.

For the sixth time Europes biggest annual nazi demonstration is comming up in a suburb outside Stockholm. Between 1300 and 1700 fascists from all over Europe, including the UK, are expected to converge in Salem with the excuse of “honouring” a nazi youth killed there in 2000. For the sixth time antifascists from Scandinavia and Germany are organising counter actions. Previous years train stations have been blocked, broad demonstrations have been organised as well as militant attacks on the fascist demonstrators before and after the demo. This years plans have not been released by all of the involved organisations, but the pan-european mobilisation seems to be working even better this year than previously.

If you want to lend a helping hand that will be much needed – and since its actually cheaper to travel to Stockholm from London and some other Brittish cities than from most Swedish cities, organised antifascist might want to take a pre Christmas trip to frostbitten Scandinavia. Check out prices on for example ryanair.com.

If you want to make the trip, the main antifascist demonstration will be in Salem at one o clock (the time might change), the station is called “Rönninge C” (map http://kartor.eniro.se/query?what=map&ax=&asearch=1&imgmode=&ms=0&street... ).To get in touch with local antifascist for accommodation the best thing is to email the Syndicalist Youth Federation club of Stockholm (Stockholm@suf.cc), but staying in hostels is one other cheap and probably easier option. On the Saturday of the march check out whats happening by dropping by the infoshop Kafé 44 in the morning (Tjärhovsgatan 44. map: http://kartor.eniro.se/query?what=map&ax=&asearch=1&imgmode=&ms=0&street... ).If you are interested in keeping an eye out for fascists in the streets there will be plenty of opportunity through out the Saturday night as most Nazis will hit the pubs after the march, which starts at 6 o clock.

If you are considering coming, remember to order tickets straight away as they become more expensive as time goes by. Also bring warm clothes – it will be suicide to be running about in a patched up denim jacket or with a pair of worn out Converse all stars as the temperature will be way below zero and you will be expected to be prepared to be active for serveral hours of demanding activities.

Regards,
International committee of Syndicalist Youth Federation (www.suf.cc)
