“Every good movement passes through five stages: indifference, ridicule, abuse, repression and finaly respect. And every movement that survives repression, mild or servere, whithout resorting to violence, invariably commands respect, which is another name for success.”
M.K. Gandhi

From Anthony Freda Studio. “You really want your kid sitting in the same fucking chair for 7 hours wearing a damn mask? And please don’t tell me that it’s better than dying. The fucking virus does not even effect children and has a 99.7% recovery rate! There is obviously another agenda here. Moving the system to remote learning will save billions of dollars and gain access to students homes and minds directly.
We are all being played, people. This is about social control, not public health. The masks Must be damaging people’s brains, because everywhere I look, people who I thought were smart and strong, have become pathetic, spineless and incapable of critical, independent thinking.

Now wear your mask, socially distance, take your shots, shut the fuck up and show your immunity papers to the nice officer at the checkpoint or we will throw your “denier” ass in prison.” See MoreSee Less

SVENSKA ISOLERADE POST-FOLKHEMMET.
Bodil Malmsten:
"En gammal människa i Stockholm berättar för mej att man där tyst och smygande lägger ner servicehusen för äldre. De gamla som sett fram emot ett rum på servicehuset, en ålderdom med trygghet och umgänge, med gemensamma matsalar och sällskapsrum men teve och kinaschack kan känna sej blåsta. Var och en får tillbringa sina sista år ensamma – förutsatt att de har ett eget hem, annars får de skylla sig själva. Där får var och en sitta och vänta på att få sin kalla matlåda av ett mobilt team. Ett utbränt och underbemannat team, anställt av någon av alla de franshiser som alla heter något med care."

We reached the parliment!

After walking 500km for three weeks we finally reached the Swedish Parliament and delivered our message loud and clear.

We were around 500 people walking together the final part of the way to demand amnesty for all refugees and asylum seekers.

It’s been a tough journey for everyone with lots of damaged feet, long days and bad weather but for the refugees and asylum seekers who were walking this is a question of life and death so everyone was very determined to reach the end.

We have met so many people on the road who have shared their stories with us. Families who have been here for years without getting residency permits, kids who are finishing high school and only have 6 months to find a job because of Swedens inhumane asylum laws, people who have been living in legal limbos because they have been rejected asylum but are unable to be deported and so much more.

We walked for every refugee and asylum seeker in Sweden to demand amnesty but ofcourse the struggle is not over.

I’m on my way back home to Gothenburg now to rest a bit and then I will start organizing the next project.
