Swedish feminist party demands minimum of 100 000 asylum seekers every year

The feminist party wants Sweden to have a minimum requirement of taking in at least 100 000 asylum seekers per year, saying migration has “positive economic macro effects”.

The Economic Policy spokesman for the Feminist Party took to Twitter, writing “Sweden should have a migration floor. How can we guarantee that Sweden takes in at least 100 000 asylum applications every year”.

The post has been retweeted by the Feminist Part official account, saying we should be thankful that we live in a country where people want to flee to, and not from.

The far-left Feminist Initiative as the party is called, was founded in 2005 by politician Gudrun Schyman.

Before founding the feminist party, Gudrun was a member of the Swedish Communist party (Left party – The Communists) who changed their name in 1990 to the current name Left Party. From 1993 to 2003 she was the party leader. She began her political career in the Marxist-Leninist League of Struggle.

In the 2014 European Parliament election the feminist party got 5.3% of the vote in Sweden, but only got 3.1% of the vote in the 2014 general election.

However in the 2018 general election support for the feminist party dwindled as they only got 0.4% of the vote.

A survey by SvD/Sifo in 2018 found that 72% of women in Sweden identified as feminists, however only 25% of men identified as such.
