The security police went out to the media on Friday and warned that people who show up at the demonstration may risk being seen together with “violent right-wing extremists” who may be in place. But the authority's warnings do not seem to have scared the public from getting there.

– There are many people who express their opinions and so far there are no disturbances, says Per Fahlström, press spokesperson for the police in the Stockholm region, Aftonbladet.

The demonstrators gathered on Norrmalmstorg and then continued towards Sergels torg. There were 18,000 registered on Facebook and pictures from the city showed an estimated between 2,500 and 3,000 people.

The organization Freedom Movement, which is behind the event, has been granted permission for 3,000 protesters. The police tell Aftonbladet that the demonstration so far stays within this limit.
