    16 thousand Stockholmers say NO to Nazism

     
    The rally was organized by Line 17, a neighborhood self-organization against racism and other socio-economic problems, in Kärrtorp in the south of capital with numbers swelled by last week's violence after a similar rally in the same place was marred by violence and attacks instigated by neo-Nazis. Representative of Line 17 group said at a brief press conference around noon that today's manifestation was more than just a protest against neo-Nazis but an overall rejection of racism as well as security problems.
    "It is too easy to say 'F you all Nazis,' we must together look at ourselves and understand the power we have in this matter every day," said DJ pair Bianca and Tiffany Kronlöv in a short speech earlier in the day.
    The protest against Nazism and racism was held under heavy police presence numbering over 100 officers. Members of the Left party made speeches and solidarity messages from Sweden as well as all over the world were read at the manifestation.
    Similar protest marches were held elsewhere in Sweden on Sunday including Borås, Luleå, Malmö and Motala.
