Racism charges against nations?

18 Apr

Charges to be laid?

Lund has a great costume party tradition, but also a history of moments of bad taste.

And as reported in this Facebook post and this article (and by the reader who tipped us on the story), the two unfortunately appear to have come together at a nation party over the weekend…

We would hope all Lund students would party responsibly – and we don’t necessarily mean by not drinking too much.

    The identity of Sweden is that of a post-modern society. This includes freedom of speech, regardless of offence to race, class, religion, etc. This international student may have been offended, but it’s not the nations NOR the authorities responsibility to intervene. If you don’t like the way things are here in Sweden, move somewhere else and pay for your education.

      Your comment appears to be in response to the Facebook post – however as far as we understand whatever official complaint has been put forth was made by a Swedish group, and the response and reactions are by Swedes mainly… In any case this is being treated by the administration directly with the nation involved (see this press release). This does not appear to be treated particularly as an international student issue, there is no mention of direct international student involvement as far as we know?
