It is no surprise that the rate of firearm-related violence in Sweden is highly increasing. Please read two of my previous posts on this notion here and here. According to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brottsförebyggande rådet, BRÅ), Skåne, the southernmost province of Sweden, and its largest city, Malmö, are more affected by shootings and firearm-related violence than any other province and city in the country.

In order to have a clear statistic over the firearm-related violence in the Skåne province, I have since 1st of January 2018 gathered statistics on the rate of shootings based on open-sources (=media), in which at least one person has been wounded or killed.

But today, our youths are thirsting to know the history and be a part of history. However, to be a part of history, we need to know the history. This short text is a humble yet necessary reminder of who the late Shah was.

The clashes in Iran continue, as the protesters enter the 7th day of their demonstrations. For a background, please read my previous post.

According to international media, more than 10 people have been killed. Here are some new clips from Iran, from the last 2 days.
