    Swedish Town Restricts 'Immigrant Weddings'

    A local politician from Landskrona in southern Sweden has decreed that only one “immigrant wedding” can be held at the town’s local community centre every month.

    “We don’t want to have too many,” Lars Svensson, the centre's manager and Social Democratic member of the Landskrona local council, told the local Helsingborgs Dagblad (HD) newspaper,

    Svensson then went on to explain what he meant by the term “immigrant wedding”.

    “It’s those who live in the city. There are quite a lot of Kurds and Palestinians who get married. There's something about having an oriental background; there can be between 400 and 500 guests,” Svensson explained, adding that "European immigrant groups" aren't included in the term.

    According to Svensson, the policy comes following repeated complaints about the noise and untidiness associated with “immigrant weddings” held at Landskrona’s Folkets Hus, translating literally into English as “The People's House”.

    But in Landskrona, Svensson’s policies have left members of some immigrant groups shut out of using the community centre.

    Moreover, it seems that weddings thrown by some European immigrant groups are in fact included in Svensson's category of "immigrant weddings".

    Local resident Habib Ramadani, originally from Kosovo, has lived in Landskrona for ten years and had hoped to hold a wedding reception for his son in the town’s community centre last year.

    But Svensson rejected Ramadani’s request, citing the proud father’s immigrant background.

    “If he had said, ‘no, it’s booked’, that would have been the end of it. But then he asked what country I was from,” Ramadani told the newspaper.

    Ramadani told Svensson he was from Kosovo, still hoping to be able to rent out the community centre’s great hall.

    “He said, ‘Not for you, you all throw cake on the floor instead of in your mouths,’” Ramadani explained.

    “But the great hall was free that weekend. Others who worked there told us so.”

    Having already sent out hundreds of invitations to guests around the world, Ramadani offered to pay professional cleaners to ensure the hall would be spotless following the event.

    Svensson remained firm, however, prompting Ramadani to try another approach.

    “Then I offered to pay for two days. But he said that this is the People’s House and as a result, people must be given access,” Ramadani told HD.

    Even a promise to keep the party alcohol free didn’t help, leading Ramadani to question Svensson's explanation.

    “Do I not count as a person? I pay taxes and I’m a part of society. But when we want to rent space for a wedding, suddenly I’m only an immigrant,” he said.

    “It’s like Lars Svensson wants to get rid of parties thrown by foreigners. It’s called the Peoples’ House but it should be called the Swedes’ House.”

    According to Ramadani, Svensson also claimed that “immigrant weddings” require advance payment because people who arrange them don’t share “our norms” when it comes to paying bills.

    Svensson told the newspaper that the community centre has been criticized by accountants for accepting payments for “immigrant weddings” in cash, often in large sums the day of the event.

    “We’ve discussed this a lot. The accountants say ‘either send a bill or pay in advance’. But we probably wouldn’t have received any money. Those who arrange weddings don’t abide by our conditions, by our norms. They come with wads of bills in their pockets,” he said.

    Per Holfve, a lawyer with Sweden’s Equality Ombudsman (Diskrimineringsombudsmannen – DO) think’s Svensson’s policy of limiting the number of “immigrant weddings” could violate the country’s anti-discrimination laws requiring everyone to have equal access to the facility, regardless of ethnicity.

    “I think it sounds like they are on thin ice. It’s one thing if someone wants to rent the space and there are concerns about problems maintaining order, but then they have to be concrete; it’s not enough to say that it's something to do with ethnic affiliation. Then it’s nothing other than stereotyping,” Holfve told the newspaper.

    But Svensson doesn’t see any problem with limiting the number of immigrant weddings, claiming he is simply doing his best to maintain a balance that reflects the makeup of the community.

    “The board’s policy is that if 20 percent of Landskrona’s residents have immigrant backgrounds, have another ethnicity, then they have the right to express their culture. And they can do that at the People’s House,” he said.

    “We try to avoid discrimination. But the alternative is prohibiting these parties altogether.”

    Folkets Hus is the name given to municipal halls through Sweden created during the rise of the country’s trade union movement in the early 20th century.

    According to the website of the National Federation of People's Parks and Community Centres (Folkets Hus och Parker), the community centres were originally created by groups of workers in order to allow them to have a place to organize and hold meetings at a time when property owners “were afraid of the revolutionary ideas” that might be discussed at such gatherings.

    The community centres represented a “significant step on the path towards equality and democracy” and remain “an important part of the social economic system” in Sweden where “marginalized groups, such as immigrants, women and unemployed can find support and together work for a better future”.

    Hah, too funny.

    Maybe if these immigrants don't like it then they can go back to whatever country they came from. Sounds like this will get overturned though, after enough complaining.

    I imagine these asiatics/muslims really are rowdy though, and they probably do destroy things. Article seems like it paints the immigrants too nicely, such little oppressed angels they are...

    Sounds like Lars should be in charge of much more than a meeting house. I wonder if we can send him invitation to join Skadi.

    I could only imagine how dirty those people are. The immigrants sometimes have gatherings in a state park near my house and it looks like garbage dump after they leave.

    It's totally nonunderstandable to me how peoples can notice a group of foreigners can cause so many trouble and taboos in society, but few are calling for stopping the immigration to Europe.

    Really, I think most people must feel this way, but they fear to voice their opinions, because those who do are just demonized as racists. If everyone were to do it in unison, though, it would be the cultural marxists who would shrink away.

    Multiculturalism never works. It degrades all those subject to it. Every effort in society is wasted pointlessly trying to equalize vast differences and no subject culture survives. The poor half-breed children have no idea who they are or where they belong, unless it is to the mindless destructive comintern that created them. It is the very definition of a meaningless, joyless existence. This has been going on in America for years, and why you see so many half this and half that people here. If things would have remained at least northwestern European, we could have had a culture, but the jew pushes only negro music upon us, worships the negro, etc. We all know what's happening. But if you in Europe allow this to continue, you will lose your respective identities, and that is what the EU wants. They want a majority of raceless, dispirited, mindless sheep so they can do as they will. Those bureaucrats in Brussels are the greatest enemy the Germanic people have ever known.

    I wonder though: if we live in democracy wouldn't the majority be right? If the majority did not like the behavior of the minority they would be right in democracy correct? Yet that does not seem the case. So if we don't live in a Democracy what do we live in? Some kind of dictatorship? You can't have your cake and eat it too. There are so many contradicitons and logical fallacies in Cultural Marxism. I can only boil down its true philosophy to this: put the weak above the strong, the dumb above the smart, the criminal above the law abider, the rude above the polite etc. and generally destroy society and sink it into the toilette. Logically there is no other trait to cultural marxism that is consistent.

    What I find funny is how the foreigner went to the papers about it. That always seems to be the case - minorities and foreigners complaining to the newspapers about their "problems." If it were the other way around where a Muslim official refused a European access to the place there would be little mention of it, if any at all. Plus, there's no telling how much of Habib's story was hyperbolated to make himself sound victimized.
