This woman single-handedly stood up to 330 violent Neo-Nazis as they protested on the streets in Sweden.
Tess Asplund, a woman from Sweden, has been an activist for 26 years now and said that:
“I normally stand with a raised fist at demonstrations, this is not new to me.”
However, a photo of the brave photographer/activist raising her fist in protest went viral for one iconic reason: she was raising it all alone against 330 marching Neo-Nazis.
Last week, the Neo-Nazis, part of a group called the Nordic Resistance Movement, obtained a permit to demonstrate and did so in Borlange, Dalarna, in central Sweden. The group rallied and marched on the busy streets on International Workers’ Day and were protected by police.
Asplund was taking part in a counter demonstration against the Nazis with a group called Dalarna Against Racism when she saw the Nazis approaching and decided that she could not allow them to walk by without showing her disdain for their movement.
She ran in front of them and put her fist in the air to defy the group. She told The Daily Mail about the moment: http://anonhq.com/customers-horrified-find-animal-flesh-blood-even-beating-heart-faux-leather-products/
“I just felt when they came walking that “you shouldn’t be here” and then one of them stared at me and I stared back. He said nothing and I said nothing, and then the police came and removed me.”

(ANTIMEDIA) The world’s most famous whistleblower, Edward Snowden, took Twitter by storm when he created an account last year. Since, he has criticized everyone from the FBI to Google, so his latest post on the CIA should come as no surprise.
Commenting on revelations the CIA “inadvertently” destroyed a copy of the 6,700-page torture report, Snowden questioned the agency’s official story.
“I worked @CIA. I wrote the Emergency Destruction Plan for Geneva. When CIA destroys something, it’s never a mistake,” he tweeted Wednesday, openly challenging the CIA’s claim. He also shared an article detailing the news……..

United Kingdom — One of the world’s most well-known whistleblowers, Chelsea Manning, has launched a formal appeal against her 35-year sentence. Arguing her punishment is “grossly unfair and unprecedented,” the appeal on behalf of Manning suggests her sentence should be reduced to 10 years and claims no whistleblower in American history has been treated as harshly as Manning.
Manning’s decision to initiate one of the largest leaks of U.S. government state secrets ultimately sacrificed decades of her future. In 2009, the 22-year-old army private, then known as Bradley, was serving as a military analyst during the U.S.-led coalition war in Iraq. When transcripts and images included in the top-secret information she was handling uncovered disturbing human rights abuses committed by U.S. forces and their allies, she believed the public had the right to know. Hoping to spark public debate on the war, she transferred around 750,000 files to WikiLeaks. Among the trove was evidence of a dramatically higher civilian death toll in Iraq than was publicly reported.
The leak also included the once classified, now infamous “Collateral Murder” video, which showed the deadly moment a U.S. Apache helicopter gunned down two Reuters journalists in Baghdad. After the initial shooting, a group of children and adults arriving on the scene to help the wounded were fired upon by the U.S. military, as well. The official statement on the incident labelled all the adults as insurgents and claimed the U.S. military did not know how the deaths occurred.
A war against whistleblowers…
