The last nights unrest in Trollhättan is reminiscent of the civil war in Lebanon, says the Liberals group leader in the city, Rita Paulsson Svensson, who herself is an immigrant from Lebanon.
Thursday night Rita Paulsson Svensson went to Kronogården to form an opinion about the ongoing unrest there. She filmed the visit and put the clip on Facebook.
Police had cordoned off the entrances to the immigrant suburb so she had to park her car and walk. Meanwhile, two police helicopters buzzed over her head.
- I could almost say that it is even worse than when it was the most war in Beirut, says the 40-year-old politician in the video.
- It is quiet now but quite scary. There are mixed feelings, I feel I both want to scream and cry, she continues.
She also says that she sees people standing in the windows and looking out, but afraid to go out of the houses, while police helicopters are circulating over the roofs.
"Where are those responsible?"
Rita Paulsson Svensson is also very critical of the local politicians who are not present to witness the chaos and form their own opinion about what is happening.
- I get angry! Why are there not any more politicians out here? she asks in the film while almost breaking down in tears.
- Where are those responsible? Why are no politicians there with the police outside the area they are afraid to go into. Why?
According to the local newspaper TTELA, it is expected that new unrest will flare up in Kronogården tonight.
Rita Paulsson Svensson is an immigrant who fled the civil war in Lebanon to go to Sweden.
The civil war in Lebanon lasted for 15 years, between 1975 and 1990, and broke out as a consequence of the country's demographic gradually being changed. The country had a Christian majority previously, but the majority of the inhabitants today are Muslims.
