    Actually they call it a street festival. Some others call it a street parlement session of the Swedish Invisible Party, which has no organization, not even formal memebership. Yet various youth actions have been called up via blogs and mobile phones to start a new type of class struggle...

    This is what I witnessed on the street of Stockholm today. Rather a festive mood all around. Naturally things can go different ways while you are young.

    Basically it's a youth anarchist movement. Have you heard about the youth protests against certain labor law in France lately? One motivation in this street gathering was to show solidarity.

    Sorry, it's in Swedish, but you can use BabelFish to translate.
