The so-called Committee on the Prohibition of Racist Organizations was appointed by the Government in July 2019.
According to TT, a majority of the parliamentary parties in the committee have now agreed to make it a criminal offense to participate in a “racist organization”.
Only the Sweden Democrats, the Left Party and the Liberals are against the proposal, and refer above all to the constitutional freedom of opinion and association.
Leading government representatives have repeatedly branded SD as a “racist” organization, and it is unclear how the party will be affected by the legislation.
However, the issue of completely disbanding “racist organizations” has not been resolved. Such a decision would require a constitutional amendment, writes TT.
The organizations that Pointed out in government directives are especially those with “anti-Semitic and Afrophobic messages”.
“To push back racist structures and ideas, which have had a foothold in our country for a long time and which will take a long time to eradicate, requires systematic and in-depth work,” Stefan Löfven wrote on Facebook in August.
He also promised “special punishments” for people involved in a racist organization.
