"Together can change the world"
"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."
"the First of may is the social Democrats' secret super power, a manifestation of the party's ability to govern and at the same time be in constant opposition to injustice. There is, admittedly, something a little odd with a state minister at the head of a protest march, in protest against the situation in a country he reigns."
"the Trains, the placards and numbers are a constant source of debate between the right and the left. Moderaten Gunnar Hökmark has protested against the demonstration trains throughout his political career while Per Schlingmann instead acclaimed the celebration after the Conservatives election victory in 2006. "
"”Finally, Sweden has had a government that listens when the workers today are demonstrating,” he wrote mockingly in Expressen."
"But the most important thing about the first of may is may not policy. Personally, I think of some verses by Nils Ferlin."
"Now sounds in the house – a clear winter day,the nen carpenter's wise a hammer.nJag sitting and listening and thinking so: nadd is the noise but not the noise anyway.it is something real, something reassuring you all that is indeterminate and förryckt."
"There are an infinite pride in the words, of the craft, knowledge and warmth."
"the Workers struggle has never concerned only with wages and working conditions, the right to holidays and job security. It has first and foremost been about human dignity, and that everyone should be counted, if you and I have the same responsibilities and the same right."
"the First of may is all about class and it is therefore right to dislike the celebrations as much – as long as workers organise themselves will always be someone to stand in their way. "
"It doesn't matter how much the christian democrats and the forces even further to the right trying to hijack the celebration. "
"Demonstrationstågen is a constant reminder that another Sweden is possible, a Sweden, where the right's privileges and power are not evident."
"My grandfather was born in 1903 in the small village of Nävekvarn Sörmland. The year before, the workers had on Nävekvarns mills formed their first union at a large stone out in the woods. The mill worked for my great-grandfather and which would soon both my grandfather and his brothers start out as gjutare. A few years ago, IF the Metal up a memorial plaque at the stone."
"”Here began the trade union fight in Dublin,” it says."
"Next to the stone, is today a municipal school and a football pitch. And even if the blast furnace is torn down and the mill is used as place for pleasure craft as living memory of the history."
"the Fight led to a completely different society, to today's Sweden – the world's most modern country."
"this year celebrates the social democrats 130 years. It was during the easter weekend 19-22 april 1889 as the 49 agent, the majority trade union, gathered in a local on the current Olof Palmes gata 12 and founded the party. The year after that, they conducted a first of may celebration for the very first time."
"Through the shifting times have demonstrationstågen continued their walk in the spring sunshine. They have seen democracy break through and challenge from the 1930s extremhöger, ava, has demanded the 8 hour work day and the peace in Vietnam. Liberty, equality, fraternity on the banners have been replaced by hashtags, and today the trains will probably be greater on Facebook than on the streets. But the basis is the same. Lonely are the people small against the powerful, together they can change the world. "
"Now obscures it even once in the world around us. The sound of the marschkängor becoming increasingly more accompanied, the right gets angrier. The experience of 130 years of history is that it is on you it depends what will happen next. "
"When darkness falls, we will all have a light."
"We choose if we light it or not. "
