A Small Town In Sweden Will Not Be Marking Earth Hour For Women Safety

Published on 19 March, 2016 at 8:14 pm By

Today is Earth Hour. At 8.30 pm the lights around the world will go off as a symbol of caring for the planet.

Östersund is a small town in Sweden, around 550 km from Stockholm, with a population of just over 44,000. Lights in this town will not even be dimmed for Earth Hour.

 

Reason? A high rate of sex attacks ever since migrants from North Africa, Syria and Iraq arrived here.

 

The police have reportedly issued an advisory to all women not to venture outside alone at night.

Between February 20 and March 6, eight sex attacks were reported from the town, all of them involving men of “foreign origin”.

 



Keeping with their pusillanimous and ambiguous misplaced liberal stand, details of the suspects have not been released. Only one man named Taleb Moafagh, 22, was arrested over a Feb 22 incident in which three men attacked a woman near a university and pushed their fingers into her mouth while making derogatory sexual remarks.

The risk to the women in this town is so high that the police have officially requested the municipality to keep the lights on.

A spokesman for the local council remarked:

“Earth Hour is a good and important event, but this year we chose to have the street lights on in view of what has happened. We want everyone to feel safe”.

Just outside the town is a migrant group of about 500, which is only growing as more immigrants enter Sweden from the European Union.

There has been a very high rate of increase in molestations, rape attempts and other crimes against women ever since migrants arrived but the Police, despite accepting their involvement, are not taking action for the fear of being called racist by the liberal world.

While opening the doors to migrants many of who are in genuine need of asylum is indeed a noble act on the part of European countries (something the rich Arab world should be ashamed for not doing), one cannot turn a blind eye to the attacks on women by some migrants that has now become a regular feature.
