Violent immigrant chaos in Gothenburg
BLM — riots against police
June 7, 2020
The “peaceful” BLM— demonstration in Gothenburg degenerated during the afternoon, with immigrant mobs attacking and throwing stones at police.
The demonstration in Gothenburg today consisted of about 3,000 participants.
After 4pm a violent group collected at Avenyn and began throwing stones at and fighting against police, according to Aftonbladet. Demonstrators are also reported to be fighting with one another.
According to the newspaper, violent demonstrators also broke a photographer’s camera.
Police surrounded the area and riot police were deployed. The mob, however, did not disperse but stood eye to eye with the police. They then succeeded in pushing the police back amid great cheering.
Aftonbladet‘s reporter was forced to run from the scene after a firecracker was thrown at him.
Police picket buses appeared to flee around 5pm when the mob threw stones against them and broke the windows.
Photos from the scene show that a large portion of the troublemakers are third-world immigrants.
“These are youths from the suburbs who are taking advantage of the opportunity. And we have had this before; we have been well aware of the situation,” says the police press spokesperson Christer Fuxborg to Aftonbladet.
Several people went into the Arkaden shopping center and smashed windows of several shops there, according to Göteborgs-Posten.
Several people have been arrested, but it is as yet unclear how many.
