The riots in Sweden

Burning of a Quran by Danish-Swedish far-right politician and lawyer Rasmus Paludan sparked riots by people with immigrant backgrounds in Swedish suburbs over the Easter weekend.

Sweden has treated its citizens with immigrant backgrounds badly for a long, which means that they are the poorest and most oppressed people in Sweden. De facto segregation to suburbs brings people together and encourages fellowship and bravery. Their justified resistance proves this.

Violence and fear created by police have only escalated the situation. The state does not want to respond to the dissatisfaction of the people, except with violence. Sweden doesn’t care for its people.

Suburban riots are an experience of class struggle which we should learn from. To crush imperialism and make a revolution, people need to organize for the hardest forms of class struggle, starting with the poorest in the movement.
