UN scrutinizes Sweden for human rights violations…

The UN:s Counsel has criticized Sweden on Monday for Human rights in Geneva. Sweden’s rates on hate crimes. The UN pointed out the growing numbers of hate crimes against Muslims and Gypsies, as well as ethnic discrimination and violence against women and excessive violence from police. When Annika Söder who is the Foreign Ministries Cabinet secretary was question she said,” This is a priority for us and the last couple of years several measures have been taken”.

This trend is alarming. I have followed news rapports on many stories. Just recently homeless Romer/Gypsies in Karlstad Sweden had their make shift dwellings and all their belongings that were under a bridge were set on fire, while they were begging in the streets in town…

I feel outraged like many people by the rise of such incidents in the news here. Sweden had elections in the fall. We had a new elections looming over us, until a coalition government ironed our issues. I am waiting to see what concrete measure and their results to protect minorities from such abuse and exploitation. I expect our Prime Minister to take concrete and swift action. Today being the 70th anniversary  Auschwitz prisoners liberation is a perfect day to bring to light racism and fascism that has rooted a seed again in Europe.

Lets stand up and say we have learned front the past and we will not allow history to repeat itself. It is a crime in Sweden to threaten a minority group. I think charges should be pressed against those who snub the law.
