From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One of the first Swedish anarchists was the Swedish artist Ivan Aguéli who in 1884 was arrested and sentenced in the "Trial of the thirty" in Paris.

Anarchist ideas were prominent in the Swedish Social Democratic Party from its founding in 1889 to the early 1900s. Hinke Bergegren headed the party's anarchist group called Ungsocialisterna (The Young Socialists). Finally, Bergegren and Ungsocialisterna were expelled from the SDP between 1906 - 1908.

An anarcho-syndicalist trade union, Sveriges Arbetares Centralorganisation, was founded in 1910. In 1922 it had 32,000 members. Today it has about 7,500 members and still publishes its own weekly paper, Arbetaren.

Prominent early Swedish anarchists include Hinke Bergegren, Anton Nilson, Leon Larsson, Axel Holmström and Albert Jensen.

Many Swedish anarchists joined and fought with the CNT-FAI during the Spanish Revolution 1936–1939. Among them, Nisse Lätt and Axel Österberg later published eye-witness reports from Spain.

The well-known author Stig Dagerman remained an anarchist for his entire life.
