Here is an interesting and somewhat amusing event from Aug, 2009. Some violent anarchists who call themselves Antifa, for anti fascist or, Anti Fascist Action, went to Muslim Rosengard Sweden hoping to exacerbate some violence and general rioting. Here is how it actually turned out this time.

Members of left wing AFA or Antifa (Anti Fascist Action – Sweden) had attempted to organise a local Street festival in Rosengård, Sweden. However things did not go to plan as local young Muslims were not ‘being organised’ by anyone and unceremoniously evicted the AFA who were then relegated to holding their ‘Street festival’ outside of a nearby ‘petrol station’, where they threw stones, bottles, and burning objects at police cars.
This article in the The Local has more information, although it is very careful to avoid identifying either the political or the ethnic aspects of the encounter. To the Swedish media, the masked Antifa are “activists”, and the violent young Muslims are “residents of Rosengård”.
