The Swedish neo-Nazi movement gained ground in 2007 due to increased activities. The three largest neo-Nazi groups were active in 19 out of Sweden’s 21 counties including extensive activity in Stockholm. Sweden’s Security Service estimates there were 1,142 incidents in 2007 which was much more than in previous years. Of these, 60% involved propaganda, 30% related to acts of vandalism, 4.5% dealt with meetings and concerts, and 3.5% was highlighted by public demonstrations.
Figures like the above can reveal evidence of the growth of neo-Nazism or it can simply be indicative that in any society there are always fringe groups which preach hatred and violence. Except for one manslaughter incident none of the assaults resulted in death to anyone. Most probably the neo-Nazi groups of today are directing their anger toward immigrants to Sweden from Muslim areas of the world. In that respect, they are symbolic of widespread feelings in Europe toward Muslim immigrants.
