Défilé du 1er mai: le maire de Malmö manifeste contre Israël

Cette année, le 1er mai, le maire de la ville de Malmö a manifesté contre "l'occupation de la Palestine" - et ce malgré la crise qui secoue l'Europe et qui affecte également la Suède. Le maire Ilmar Reepalu défile sous la bannière où figure l'inscription: "Stop à l'occupation de la Palestine".

May Day – the first of May – is Labour Day in many countries, on which demonstrations by the workers take place in order to get better working conditions. In Sweden this is traditionally done under the auspices of the Social Democrats. This year in Malmö the city’s mayor Ilmar Reepalu decided to demonstrate on May 1 against "the occupation of Palestine". Under a large text which read: "Stop the occupation of Palestine" one can see a smiling Reepalu who commented in an interview with daily newspaper Expressen:

"No land should occupy another land. The Soviet Union occupied the Baltic states during several decades. Israel has occupied land for 43 years now. I think its wrong, so does Barack Obama and many other people in the world as well." In this way Reepalu is making yet another contribution to the already tense situation in Malmö.
Reepalu’s statement is also another problematic one for many reasons. The Palestinian territories on the West Bank of the Jordan river are "disputed" and not "occupied" land. Israel conquered it in 1967 after it had been attacked by the Jordanians. These ruled on the West Bank without international recognition.
