The police have told Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats) that they must cancel all their public meetings because their safety cannot be guaranteed.
In other words, Swedish law enforcement admits that it either can’t or won’t prevent anarchist and Muslim thugs from assaulting and firebombing the meetings of a officially registered political party whose members are assembling lawfully and peacefully.
This is what the electoral process has become in modern multicultural Sweden.
The following message just came in from the Sweden Democrats:
Yet another dire event in Sweden and a major setback for freedom of speech.
Let’s start first with a portion of the press statement we just made:
SD’s planned public meetings in Norrköping, Karlstad, Eskilstuna, have in all cases been cancelled by the police after they informed us that they are unable to guarantee the safety of speakers.
This morning, a planned square meeting with party secretary, Björn Söder, in Norrköping was cancelled.
After a long wait for a go-ahead from the police to carry out the planned square meeting in Karlstad, Sweden Democrats party leader Jimmie Åkesson was informed late this afternoon that the police do not intend to prevent the left extremists who gathered on site from disrupting the meeting — including throwing eggs and voicing their threats. The police told the Sweden Democrats that the meeting must be cancelled.

Thus, the police have officially given up in the face of left-wing fascism. We are not allowed to hold election meetings, just a few days away from the election day (Sunday).
The full press statement may be found here.
Please pass this on and spread as much as you can.
Readers who maintain blogs or other websites: please help Sverigedemokraterna get the word out. There is a cone of silence over them in Sweden, and now they are locked out of public meetings. The internet is the only way they can communicate.
Pass it on!
Update — More details have arrived:
In Eskilstuna, Björn Söder was met by a large group of left-wing extremist counter-demonstrators. That meeting was also aborted on the advice of the police. In spite of police escort, the vehicle that the party secretary and other Sweden Democrats were travelling in on their way from the square was attacked with kicks and spat upon.
Jimmie Åkesson, Sverigedemokraterna, comments:
“It is very remarkable that during the election campaign leftwing-extremists are time and time again allowed to stop us from delivering our message. The events in Karlstad are unfortunately one example of many, and show that the leftwing-extremists and their violent methods have triumphed over the police, who are no longer able to uphold law and order in the country.”
The Sweden Democrats will file a complaint to the Justice “ombudsmannen”, JO, against the police.
