Oscar-winning film inspires protest against water pipe
6:56 min

Residents in Värmdö county have been inspired by an Oscar-winning film to make their point to their local council about a pipe pumping contaminated water into the Stockholm archipelago.

Radio Sweden meets with one of the leading protesters in Gustavsberg and finds out that, while all sides agree on the levels of pollution, the source of the contaminants and who is responsible is far from clear.

Gunnar Lind and other neighbours erected two large billboards at a bustop close to the pipe, calling on the leader of Värmdö's centre-right Alliance-led council to stop the pipe, taking their inspiration from the American film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
