The fight against Russian submarines is ongoing in the Stockholm archipelago. Swedish Peace does it with a wink in its new campaign, the so-called defense system ''The Singing Sailor Underwater Defense System'', Swedish Television writes.
It sounds like an April fools joke, but apparently it's not.
The Singing Sailor is a defense system consisting of a sign that on April 27 was lowered into the sea in the Stockholm archipelago. The sign consists of a flashing neon sign saying "Welcome to Sweden. Gay since 1944 ", which refers to 1944, the year when homosexuality was legalized in Sweden.
The sign also sends out the message "This way if you are gay" in Morse code.
The plan of the Defense system to defend the Swedish coastlines against submarine attacks, apparently is by scaring away all the homophobic Russian submarine captains who lurk in the depths of the sea.
- If there is a submarine down there and there is a crew member who hears or sees the sailor they are welcome to join us in the Pride Parade on August 1st in Stockholm. In times of unrest, love and peace across borders is even more important than usual. We want to end the violence, writes Daniel Holking, at the Swedish Peace, in a press release.
Russia's alleged submarine presence in Swedish waters are well known, and Russia has previously approved a controversial law prohibiting "propaganda" directed against minors related to "non-traditional sexual relationships".
The Swedes... LOL!
