Analysis

Analysis:

Overview: Sweden

The May riots were looked upon in disbelief by many Stockholm residents as the police station in the north eastern district of Jakobsberg was invaded and a handicraft centre was burnt to the ground.as were some 30 cars. A local school was also vandalised. Overall, in Stockholm, three days of rioting were estimated to have seen over a hundred cars set on fire. Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, already on the political back foot as the ruling coalition trailed in the opinion polls, rather lamely remonstrated with the protestors, saying that: ‘There are young people who think that they can change society by violence. Let’s make it clear that that is not possible, that we can’t allow ourselves to be ruled violence.’ Swedes could count themselves lucky that the street protests were not as violent, nor as widespread, as those seen in France and the United Kingdom in recent years. None the less, the violence showed that Sweden’s austerity policies affected those who had the least, and especially affected immigrants.
