The NMR have been permitted to march & demonstrate in many places under ‘freedom of speech’ laws but in some cases have been moved on if the local police have perceived their demonstrations as a public order risk - which they almost always are
Not heard of permission for a 4 day protest at somewhere as sensitive as Almedalen before but I guess the Gotland Police are perhaps not the most diverse outfit in the land and they have final say.
Seems bizarre though. There’ll no doubt be editorials in the morning.
A bunch of colleagues are at Almedalen this week and we (Amnesty) have our offices in the same building as RFSL here in Stockholm and obviously work a lot with them on HBQTI+ rights. I think we might even be sharing some facilities with them at Almedalen so I’ll ask around & report back. It’s well fucked up though. Hope the Gotland police see sense & move them on/shut them down
