Sweden’s immigrant communities rebel

first_imgProtest against police violence in Husby, northern Stockholm, Sweden, on May 22.Many were shocked at the week of rebellion that began May 19 in the suburb of Husby just outside Stockholm, Sweden, a city which is known for its social services programs, clean commercial districts and neighborhoods. The rebellion that spread to other regions of the country illustrated the anger and frustration of young people, who are largely descendants of immigrants from Western Asia and Africa.The resistance began when police actions resulted in the death of a 70-year-old Portuguese immigrant in Husby. Officials claimed he had threatened the officers with a machete. Neighborhood sources said that it was no machete, but a knife.Also, no one was being held hostage, as news reports had indicated and the other person with the man in his apartment was his spouse. Apparently the couple had problems with some youths in the neighborhood, and when police arrived the couple was responding to an already tense and hostile dispute.This conflict may have been the spark that ignited a week of arson against vehicles and buildings and attacks on businesses, the police and firefighting forces. The underlying reasons, however, are that many youth within this Scandinavian state are jobless and all from these communities are subject to police harassment.During the week, the rebellions spread to other Swedish cities: Malmo, Gothenburg, Orebro and Akersberga. Reports indicate that at least 100 people have been arrested and no deaths reported since the demise of the initial victim.Sweden’s center-right governments have deeply cut social service programs over the last decade during a gradual economic decline during the 1990s and the overall world capitalist crisis that has hit all of Europe since 2007. The suburban areas around Stockholm and other cities are now home to immigrants from Iraq, Iran, Kurdistan, Turkey and ­Somalia, et al., and their Sweden-born children, along with a new influx of refugees from Syria in response to the Western-backed war of aggression and regime change.The growing immigrant communities make up about 15 percent of Sweden’s population. A far-right party has surfaced, the Swedish Democrats, which is gaining support among the Europeans and seeking to politically exploit the latest events. The SD now has 20 representatives in the country’s 349-member Parliament. Jimmie Akesson, the party’s leader, has called for the deportation of noncitizens involved in what he calls criminal activity.Making matters even worse, center-right Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt of the Moderate Party, called the young people in the streets “hooligans” (Reuters, May 23). He refused to consider racism, growing inequality, lack of opportunity and police brutality as being central to the rebellion.Youth condemn racismBarbo Sorman, a spokesperson for the opposition Left Party, pointed to these ills and added that “Sweden was starting to look like the United States.” (New York Times, May 27)Sweden, though it remained capitalist and aligned with the imperialist West, had a social democratic government for 40 years until the 1970s. This brought more extensive social programs and avoided extreme poverty. Since the 1990s, when there was an economic downturn, these social programs have declined. The rightist regime has continued to cut these programs.According to a report issued by the United Nations-affiliated Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Sweden has the fastest growing rate of income inequality among all the 34 OECD members. This is a similar pattern within most Western capitalist states, which in part is the result of government policies that allow unregulated profit making efforts by the wealthy.The unrest in Sweden follows similar outbreaks in other European states. This includes England, where, two summers ago, dozens of cities were hit by rebellions in response to police brutality and the cutbacks in social services that disproportionately impacted Blacks and other oppressed groups within the society.In Paris beginning in 2005, widespread attacks on private property and the police spread throughout the country’s immigrant suburbs. Racism and the lack of economic opportunities were also behind the rebellions there. North African-origin and African immigrant communities are trapped outside the major French cities in suburbs where there are very few jobs, and police patrol these areas as if they are war zones.Barar Mohamed, a 15-year-old youth whose parents are immigrants from Somalia, pointed out: “So maybe I am lucky to be in Europe. Compared to people in Somalia, maybe I am lucky. But I have hardly ever even met them, and this is where I live, and I have to live with police brutality, and I don’t have the same chance as the Swedish kids. I am Swedish. I am Swedish.” (Independent, May 26)As the economic crisis persists in Europe and the immigrant communities continue to be used as scapegoats for the decline in living standards and the growing class divisions, more rebellions will take place throughout the continent. Working-class Europeans have no choice but to join alliances with the people of color communities to form a united front against austerity and the assaults on the social service programs that had been conceded to the workers’ struggles during the Cold War period following the end of World War II.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Black woman found dead in jail cell

first_imgAug. 2 — Ralkina Jones is yet another African-American woman who died in police custody under suspicious circumstances.Jones, 37-years-old, had an alleged altercation with her ex-spouse, Brandon Jones, in a parking lot in the suburb of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, on July 24.Ralkina JonesAlthough Mr. Jones refused to press charges, the Cleveland Heights police took Ralkina Jones to the local jail on charges of felonious assault, domestic violence and child endangerment. The Jones’ 12-year-old daughter was in her mother’s car when she allegedly attacked Mr. Jones and his vehicle.By Sunday morning, July 26, Ralkina Jones was still in jail and dead.Jones had been suffering from several medical problems and was under a doctor’s care. Her family visited her on Saturday afternoon and she was doing well. By early evening, however, Jones was lethargic and taken to the HealthSpan emergency room. Twelve hours later, she was found dead in her cell.“How do you release someone within two hours from going to an ER room? You know, just in such a hurry to take her back to jail?” asked Jones’ sister, Renee Ashford. (theroot.com, July 28)Ashford said the family has repeatedly called the police department seeking more information after they heard the news of her sister’s death. “Every time we call we don’t get an answer and that’s the upsetting part,” stated Ashford. (colorlines.com, July 28)An autopsy report released July 27 said “no suspicious injuries” were visible on Jones’ body. (St. Louis American, July 28) As of this writing on Aug. 2, no official cause of death has been determined or released to the public.In all likelihood Ralkina Jones would be alive today if she had not been tossed into jail and mistreated in a racist and deadly manner.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Government closes Al Jazeera’s Kuwait City bureau

first_img News Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the government’s closure of the Kuwait City bureau of the Doha-based satellite TV station Al Jazeera for covering police use of force to disperse an unauthorised demonstration at Soulaibikhat, 10 km from the city centre, on 8 December.“This closure violates the legal procedures and regulations in force in Kuwait,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the authorities to reissue Al Jazeera’s journalists with accreditation so that they can go back to work. Freedom of expression is guaranteed by Kuwait’s constitution.”Opposition members organized the demonstration to protest against a proposal to amend the 1962 constitution. The government warned them in advance that it would not be authorized and told them to hold it indoors.When the demonstrators, who included around ten parliamentarians, went ahead with the protest in the street, anti-riot police attacked them, hitting them with batons. Several of the protesters had to be hospitalized with fractures and other injuries.“This was an outrage unprecedented in Kuwait’s political history,” opposition parliamentarian Jaman Al Herbish told Reuters. “There was a deliberate intention to physically assault the opposition.”“The authorities must face up to their responsibilities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A TV station should not be made to pay because of violent behaviour by the police, especially when many websites covered the event, resulting in fierce criticism. We urge the government to carrying out an independent and transparent investigation into this use of violence by the police.”Writer and lawyer Mohamed Abdel Qader Al-Jassem, the author of many articles critical of the prime minister, has meanwhile been the victim of judicial harassment since August 2009 (http://en.rsf.org/kuwait-journalist-gets-six-month-jail-01-04-2010,36929.html). According to his lawyer, he was acquitted nine times before being sentenced to a year in prison with forced labour on 22 November.His case has been transferred to a special court and he is facing the possibility of an additional one-year sentence when he is tried again tomorrow. In the meantime, he underwent triple bypass surgery on 8 December.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for Al-Jassem’s release and a halt to all the prosecutions being brought against him. The politicization of the judicial apparatus poses a serious threat to the future of democracy in Kuwait.

Copyright: Nadejda Chipeva BulgariaEurope – Central Asia CorruptionFreedom of expression center_img Bulgaria’s general election: RSF publishes 10 proposals to rescue press freedom RSF_en After awarding Bivol its prize for investigative journalism (the only prize of this kind in Bulgaria), the foundation has just withdrawn it on the grounds that the names of Bivol’s two journalists do not appear on the site. In fact, as they explained to RSF, the two journalists, Atanas Chobanov and Assen Yordanov, are clearly named on the site although they use the joint byline “Bivol” on their stories. The jury of well-known journalists that chose to award the prize to Bivol has publicly criticized its withdrawal by the foundation’s board, describing the decision as arbitrary. The foundation is named after a journalist who died in 2010. Bivol’s award-winning investigation was about the secret properties of the Bulgarian cigarette manufacturer Bulgartabac and the construction of a Black Sea palace for Ahmed Dogan, a maverick politician of Turkish descent who leads the Turkish minority in Bulgaria. “We condemn this act of hostility towards Atanas Chobanov and Assen Yordanov, two investigative journalists who were named as RSF information heroes in 2014,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s EU-Balkans desk. “The Radostina Konstantinova Foundation is trying to damage their reputation by using spurious and unacceptable arguments. The real problem was the embarrassment caused to certain Bulgarian politicians by the information they revealed.” Bulgaria is ranked 113th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, the lowest position of any European Union member.

Community radio station gutted by firebomb attack

first_img to go further News Reporters Without Borders voiced deep shock today at a firebomb attack on 2 August that completely destroy the community radio station Quebracho Poty in the northeastern town of Puerto Casado.”We will be watching closely to see whether there is a thorough investigation and whether those responsible are punished,” the press freedom organisation said. “We also hope that Quebracho Poty will be able to resume broadcasting soon, and we call on other Paraguayan radio stations to help it out, as it is the only news media in the Puerto Casado area.”The attack was carried out at around 6 a.m. by unidentified individuals who broke into the compound of the San Ramón Nonato parish church and used petrol bombs to set fire to the station, which is located inside the compound.When station employee Cecilio Escolarte arrived for work a few hours later, he found the locks and windows smashed, and studios and all the equipment destroyed by the fire. The police came and began an investigation. A forensic expert was also sent by city of Concepción state prosecutor Dora Irrazábal.The local press quoted various Puerto Casado inhabitants including Brother Domingo Bulfe of the San Ramón Nonato parish as saying members of the Moon sect may have been responsible. They reported hearing sect members making threats in the past, such as, “That radio station and church are going to be burned down.”The sources said the arson attack may have been in reprisal for the station’s support for a bill to expropriate 52,000 hectares of land belonging to the sect. The bill, which was due to come before the senate on 4 August, would grant the land to the inhabitants of Puerto Casado.
