In Turku proletarian revolutionaries were seen commemorating the Day of Heroism with a stand in the city, where many discussions with masses in the city was made.





A cultural event was held on occasion of the day of heroism, a speech was held about the heroic resistance in 1986, and the documentaries “People of the Shining Path” and “You must tell the world” was shown, the event ended with the Speech of Chairman Gonzalo from 1992.

The union negotiation-process for the around 850.000 people employed by the state is now largely finished. This process consists of a complex system of unions, negotiation groups representing multiple unions and state organs negotiating on behalf of the bourgeois state at different levels (both the federal level, and the regional and municipal level). In the end of this process, votes are held in the unions to ratify the proposals, so the union bureaucrats can boast about having the support of the workers, since the minority which votes, often opts for simply accepting the lukewarm agreement the bourgeoisie and union-bureaucrats have served for them, since they don’t trust the unions to actually be able to lead strikes successfully, especially since the state can simply force an agreement by law.

So the negotiation-process was finished with the result the bourgeoisie expected, general approval of the proposal for the period 2021-2024, except for the fact that one union voted against – the nurse union.

The main quarrel of the nurses is being paid less compared to other sectors with similar educations, and this objection is of course not the work of the bureaucrats in the union, they recommended to vote yes on the proposal and instead have faith in the “equal pay commission” which supposedly should find a solution to why certain sectors and especially women are paid less. No commission is needed, already the problem is known, and importantly the solution is known – class struggle. And this is now what the nurses have opted for, despite the obstacles set up by the rotten unions and the corporativistic negotiation system, 10% of all nurses employed by the state are striking from the 19. of June.

The difficulty is now to achieve solidarity for the strike, because the actions of the leaders of the nurse union actively has worked against showing solidarity with the sectors with similar demands. This is not the will of the nurses who time and time again in history have fought for equal pay, and especially one can look to the strike of 2008, when both the nurses, the pedagogues and the nursing workers striked together for almost two months, with massive popular support among the masses. Compared to 2008 the situation is seemingly weakened, but this also exposes the opportunism of the union leadership and shows the need for solidarity and coordination across all sections of the proletariat, which can only be lead by the Communist Party, which has to be reconstituted.


On the 18th of April manifestations were made in 160 locations around in Sweden and during the weekend 35 larger action were also carried out against the plans of the Swedish government to introduce complete freedom for landlords to set rent as high as they wish on new properties. This would mean significantly higher rent on new housing development, which inevitably will affect existing housing as well. The Left party (revisionists) and the Swedish Democrats (national chauvinists) tries to use this to accelerate their reputation, so they can gain more votes in the next election. But more and more people are fighting against this most reactionary proposal, demanding that housing should not be used be used as investment objects, that affords the right to raise exorbitant rent, forcing people into poverty, in order to line the pockets of the property capitalists.


It has been revealed that the prosecutors office has neglected to interrogate police officers in the case of Babak Karimis, who was assaulted by masked police in his apartment, beat up and tasered for 5-10 seconds, on the 12 of march 2020 on obviously wrong charges. Now the government is holding its hand over the police officers who used such excessive force, since Karimis cannot point out which police officers did which things (they were masked!), and so the prosecutor claims that it would not be fair to interrogate them as suspects, and that the police are “neutral” in the case. Other standards of appointing suspects are of course applied when it is not the police who is suspected of committed a crime. Between 2016 and 2020, 4134 motions were filed with the prosecution office against police officers, but of those only 129 lead to charges being raised by the office, which is only 3%. Many cases can be rejected because the exact police officer has to be identified and in many cases the crimes of the police are simply not considered offenses they can be charged for under Swedish law.
