Right now there’s a breaking news story about Antifascistisk Aktion... in action.
One of my contacts in Sweden alerted me to this story, which he says is all over the news there. It concerns an attack on the girlfriend of a member of the major anti-immigration political party in Sweden. My contact says that the news stories don’t mention that AFA members are the culprits, but that it is obvious.
Here’s his partial translation and précis of a news story in STHLM.
Politician’s Girlfriend Assaulted at Home- - - - - - - - -
The girlfriend of the Martin Kinnunen, the chairman of the youth movement of Sverigedemokraterna [SD, the Sweden Democrats] was attacked Wednesday afternoon and tied up in her apartment in Stockholm. The assault took place after a longer period of threats.
Around 4:30 pm three men knocked on the door to Kinnunen’s apartment. Kinnunen wasn’t at home, and his 19-year old girlfriend opened the door. The men entered the apartment and threatened the girl with a knife, tied her up and put a gag on her using tape.
The woman was then dragged out of the apartment, where she fell and hurt herself. The three attackers fled the scene, leaving the woman lying in the stairway. A neighbor found her and alerted the police.
SÄPO (Swedish Security Police) have been informed, and if it is proven that this is an attack with a political background, SÄPO will provide the police with information.
“This is definitely a politically-motivated action,” Martin Kinnunen says. He tells of several threats and anonymous phone calls to the family the last weeks.
“A few weeks ago I reported an email to the police.”
