Subject: Asylum from Sweden because of the FRA and PKU laws
  The Swedish parliament recently passed a law that allows the Swedish authorities to monitor all electronic communication (e-mails, text messages, phone calls, chats, etc) passing through the borders of the country (which in practice means all communications within Sweden as well) and for them to sell the information collected through the monitoring to foreign intelligence agencies: the so-called FRA law.

Another law in preparation (the PKU law) aims to give the Swedish police access to the DNA registers of 3 million Swedes (1/3 of the population) born after 1975, in spite of the fact that the database was created exclusively for medical purposes.

These two laws abolish our constitutional rights to personal integrity, privacy and freedom of speech here in Sweden. Swedish bloggers protesting againt the FRA law have already begun to be harrassed by members of the parliament themselves, who f.ex. tried to get the protesters fired from their jobs.

These laws are the hardest of their kind in the whole Western world and only have equivalents in China and Saudi Arabia. They sadly remind us that democracy should never be taken for granted, even in a traditionally democratic country such as Sweden.

My question is: Would Swedish citizens be granted political asylum to Canada when the laws start to be applied? (1st January 2009 for the FRA law)

A certain IRB member who would be finishing his/her term within a month could find you a CR but the odds are more likely you would be convicted for Impaired while cutting your grass in Malmo.

Sad situation. We have Ceorge W. II as our Prime Minister.

Very interesting. Sad to know that a top liberal country like Sweden is taking such extreme steps.

I can´t comment at this moment about your subject question.

Just curious, what made the Swedish Govt. to ammend this? Do you guys are panicked too much about possible terrorist acts? Or is it related with something else?

Thanks for your answers!
No, there are no terrorist threats against Sweden. We made the mistake of electing a right-wing government during the last elections and now we´re paying for it. All they´ve done since they came into office is get rid of our civil rights one after the other.

Got it.

Pathetic, but they simply can´t whatever they like. There must be good explanation.

Well that´s exactly the problem, they do whatever they like and they have no good explanation for it. All the laws that have passed since they came into office have gone against the will of the Swedish people. The last one caused a mass protest of 6.6 million to the parliament (Sweden´s population is 9 million). People are of course also out on the streets demonstrating. And the government´s answer to the protests is: "they just don´t get what that law is about". A government that considers that 75% of the country´s population just "doesn´t get it" and decides to go against its will is not a democratic government. They are already sending refugees back to war zones and threats of torture (which is against the human rights convention and the Swedish consitution) and been deporting Swedish citizens to the US on vague suspicions of links to terrorist groups (also against human rights and Swedish constitution). Many of us are afraid of what will come next once the government controls all communications in and through the country. Our freedom of speech and rights to personal integrity are gone.
It´s a sad period in Swedish history indeed.

Try fighting for a more just Society then against the current government because from your posting the current government is not listening.

Fight for a just Society by setting an example.

Think about it-----

The War on Drugs has gotten more drugs in our schools.
The War on Terrorism has caused many to wear suicide backpacks.

So it also hurts to Swedish liberal immigration policy?

That is definitely a bad news for the immigration world. Sweden and Canada probably are the best destinations for the assylum seekers.

Well, Sweds are more open( about refugee) than other Scandinavian countries. But I am afraid that Finland will follow Sweden for sure ..why?? Swedish is 2nd official language ( only 5 milliloin pepople live in Finland) and there are many Swedish speaking (mother tongue)Finnish people live here. Beside Finns think that Sweden is the leader and Finland is follower.

I think the government did it cause there many immigrants( who came 60s and 70s) live in Sweden, even though many of them born and raised in Sweden stil their root is foreign based and that´s the reason Govt. is doing this before anything bad happened.

I do not agree with the statement by Froken... as if 75% of th people are against it, it is a good reason to call the early election.. and those 75% can elect left wing party again... though i know my words are too simple to be real.. however, most of the time simplest solution is right infront of our eyes. just to add... running away from a problem is not a solution, what if a right wing party comes in act in canada, where will you run then.. please think about all thse factors, as you claiming refugee only bring standards of Swedish people down
