More than 30 organizations have joined forces to protest against the visit of President Barack Obama to Stockholm on Wednesday. More than a thousand participants have signed up on social media sites for a demonstration from Stockholm's Söder district to the Swedish parliament.

The NSA surveillance scandal, US drone attacks and Guantanamo Bay prison are just some of the issues they want the Swedish government to raise with the US President.

One of the organizers is Left Party activist Dror Feiler who was also behind last year’s Ship to Gaza protest.

He spoke to Tom Sullivan. Click below to listen:
