Sweden: Solidarity protests throughout the country.

Gaza solidarity manifestations were held throughout Sweden today. In Helsingborg, 1000 people gathered to protest.

In Stockholm attendance at a rally that marched to the Israeli embassy was above 2,000. Lower than last week's 12,000, but a good turnout considering that the rally had been announced just three days earlier. Mobilizations are underway for a big rally on Sergels torg, 13.00, Saturday 24 January.

In Malmö a demonstration was held at Gustav Adolfs torg, organized by the Palestinian Association, Lebanese Association and other organizations. At the rally, local Social Democratic MP Marie Granlund.
