Swedish section gives 5000 euros for NSSP tsunami fund

Thursday 24 February 2005, by Anders Svensson

The Socialist Party, the Swedish section of the International, has raised around €5000 (45 000 SEK) for the relief fund of the Sri Lankan comrades, the NSSP (see article below). €2800 (25 000 SEK) have already been sent and another 2200 (20 000 SEK) will be sent soon.

The strong Swedish response to the appeal, and of course the wider appeals of governments and NGOs, probably reflects the large number of Swedes dead and injured in the tsunami catastrophe and the solidarity for the people in the south Asian countries this has awakened in the majority of the Swedish people.
