Malmö migrant camp to be torn down now

The controversial “shanty camp” of EU migrants in Malmö was due to be town down at 4:00 PM Sunday. According to Swedish Radio News reporter Anna Bubenko, around half of those in the camp, around 75 people, had left by 3:00 PM.

But others refuse to leave, and they have been joined in support by demonstrators outside the camp.

Simona Tegman of the Network for Roma Rights tells the TT news agency “We want to have a peaceful demonstration, a sit-down.”

Malmö is offering a place to stay for five nights for around 50 people, says local councilor Carina Nilsson. They are also trying to find help for the migrants in their home villages in Romania. Most of the migrants are Roma from Romania.
