Protests by Palestinian Refugees Ongoing in Sweden over Rejected Asylum Applications

Palestinian refugees continue to rally in Gustaf Adolfs torg, a town square located in central Gothenburg, Sweden, protesting the rejection of their applications for asylum by the Swedish migration authorities.

Activists said local authorities have been treating refugees’ demands on a political basis, rather than a humanitarian or legal basis. They added that most demands are rejected without taking into consideration the humanitarian conditions of the refugees.

Hundreds of families coming from the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and the diaspora have reportedly been threatened with deportation in Sweden. Several refugees, including elderly refugees and persons with special needs, have been staying in the country for over 10 years. Dozens of children have also been born in the country.

Though the Swedish authorities consider Palestine as an unsafe place, with poor education and health services, they have been denying Palestinian refugees humanitarian asylum.

The refugees urged the Swedish government to protect them and grant them asylum in line with human rights and refugee conventions.

Over recent years, thousands of Palestinian refugees have been denied asylum in several European countries and received immediate deportation orders.
