In Stockholm, about 18,000 people expressed their readiness to take part in the demonstration, while the presence of no more than 3,000 people is allowed in the venue, the central Sergeltorg square. From time to time, rockets took off into the air and sparklers lit up.

In Gothenburg, according to police, from one to 1.5 thousand demonstrators gathered on the central square of Gustaf Adolfs Torg. According to local police spokesman Christer Fuchsborg, the organizers of the rally did not apply to the city authorities for permission to hold it. Nevertheless, the Gothenburg police prepared in advance for this event.

When asked whether the police would disperse the demonstration due to lack of permission, Fuchsborg answered in the negative. If everything is peaceful and calm and they (the demonstrators) do everything we tell them, then everything will pass without our intervention, he explained.
