Swedish churches want to see a more “humane migration policy”, i.e. more mass immigration into Sweden. On Monday – the ‘Sweden Democrats’ day in Almedalsveckan – Christians launched an anti-Swedish campaign that will last until the general elections next year.
Until the general election next year, the churches, the Christian Council of Sweden (SKR), is running a racist campaign that opposes the Swedes’ right to their own country. The campaign is advocating a “humane migration policy’ and the churches want to show that they stand on the side of the immigrants. The campaign is also a protest against the Sweden Democrats and Swedish nationalism.
- It’s about human dignity and migration issues need to be lifted, we want to see a we-society, not an us and them-society, says Björn Cedersjö of SKR, who has been one of the driving forces behind the campaign.
- We have many people who are doing a very important job for the refugees. But they often feel alone and therefore it is important that we with this manifesto show that we are behind them, says Archbishop Anders Wejryd, who also points out the importance of a “legally secure asylum process”.
Bjorn Cedersjö points out that they deliberately started its anti-Swedish campaign on the ‘Sweden Democrats’ day in Almedalen.
