Several protests planned during Obama visit

President Barack Obama is due to visit Sweden in September.

Four political groups have applied for permission to demonstrate during US President Barack Obama's stay in Sweden in September.

The Pirate Party, the Communist Party of Stockholm and the Iraq Solidarity group all want to hold protests at Sergels Torg, a square in central Stockholm, with the Communist Party planning a demonstration route via the US embassy.

In addition, Rättvisepartiet Socialisterna - the Swedish branch of the Committee for a Workers' International - have applied for permission to march from Medborgarplatsen in south-central Stockholm to Mynttorget in the Old Town.

"We could change our minds and walk to the embassy instead. We want to march together with others who are protesting against the role that the United States plays in the world and against Obama as a symbol of imperialism," Per-Åke Westerlund of Rättvisepartiet Socialisterna told news agency TT.
