There were also demonstrations in Stockholm and Malmö. The organizers included three opposition political parties: The Pirate Party, the Greens, and the Left Party, as well as the youth wing of the Christian Democrats, who are part of the government coalition, and a group called Social Democrats Against Big Brother.
