The Kungsan 15 are fifteen Swedish anti-fascists who were persecuted by the Swedish state for the “crime” of trying to prevent neo-nazis from marching through Stockholm. As a direct result of the legal action taken against them, they were slapped with 350,000KR in legal expenses (about $40,000USD)!
Their support group, Fria Kungsan 15, waged a long and tireless struggle to raise money to off-set these costs, their goal being to raise enough so that none of the fifteen anti-fascists had to pay out of their own pocket to cover these legal expenses. In December, the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund sent what we could to help with this.
We are happy to report that last week, Fria Kungsan 15 achieved their goal, raising all 350,000KR and ensuring that the financial cost of anti-fascism for these 15 brave antifa was taken care of. This was the result of a truly international effort and demonstrates what real solidarity among anti-fascists and anti-racists can achieve.
FIGHTING HATE IS NOT A CRIME!
ANTI-FASCISM = SELF-DEFENCE!
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON!
