AFA (antifa) Malmö: Organized Nazi attacked demonstrators

Since about a month back there has been a demo in Jägersro in Malmö for Iraqi right to asylum in Sweden. The demonstration has been attacked by right-wing extremists several times, that among other things have sicced dogs on the demonstrators and punctured car tires. Night to Monday the demonstration was attacked by a Nazi active within the Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR).

During the night between Sunday and Monday the demonstrators in Jägersro, which hold a demonstration outside the Migration Agency, were attacked by a car driver that intentionally tried to run over the demonstration participants and destroy their signs and banners. After having hit a wooden pole that functioned as a flagpole the car driver started skidding and drove into a tree. The demonstrators have described how the driver remained sitting in the car a long time, knife armed, and later stepped out and attacked them with pepper spray. The man eventually was detained on the scene by the police which arrived later. The car, which was adorned with a Nazi eagle and a swastika, was towed away.

It soon turned out that it was a from earlier known, active Nazi, which during periods has had as a habit to perform similar crazy acts in the area around Malmö – a person that has been identified as Alex Jönsson (950122-9471). The history of Alex actually begins several months before the violent attack against the asylum rights demonstrators.

 

The swastika car in Rosengård

Early in the month of February several media in Malmö reported how a car was seen driving through and around Rosengård. The attention this got was due to that the tailgate of the car was covered by a big swastika-banner. A sticker from the rugby team Pingvin Rugby Club was documented to be on the car at the time, which made the Trelleborg based team distance themselves and in media clarify that they distance themselves from Nazism and racism:

”Rugby is open to everyone and shall always be so. We have absolutely nothing to do with these insane things”

Reader contributed picture that was sent to media after the event in Rosengård.

Spectators described to media how they were shocked to see the car – with a smiling driver – drove past them on the way out of Rosengård. The case with the swastika-car on the Amiralsgatan street however remained unsolved for yet some months, until one day in April when the car was seen once again in Malmö – this time in the Möllevången neighborhood and without swastika banner.

 

The Nazi at Möllan

[short form of the neighborhood Möllevången]

Late on the Saturday April 22 a lone individual was seen walking on the Kristanstadsgatan street in central Malmö, one of several streets in the area that end near the Möllevång square. He was reported to be dressed in an unbuttoned jacket and under this was seen a shirt with a print from NMR  – one of the most violent Nazi groups in Sweden. He had just posted a couple of Nazi stickers along the street when he was discovered, in the middle of his short walk along the People’s Square. The anti-fascists that were informed about his presence immediately located the man in question to confront him, but before they caught up with him he had returned to his car and disappeared.

He did however not immediately leave the Möllevången neighborhood, rather shortly returned in his car, with which he tried to tried to run over the people that then were at the Kristianstadsgatan street. The car had shortly earlier been identified as belonging to a middle aged woman living outside Trelleborg. Later, during the next week, there was a struggle-report published at Nordfront (NMR’s home page and news portal) about the evening in question, where the events were described as ”propaganda distribution”.

After the insane drive at Möllevången the pieces of the puzzle quickly fell into place, and it soon turned out that it wasn’t the first time that the car’s driver had been roaming in Malmö with malevolent intentions. The car turned out to be the same dark gray Jeep Grand Cherokee that in February had been driving through Rosengård with a swastika-banner over the tailgate – and the person that drove was identified as Alex Jönsson, a 22 year old truck driver from Klagstorp.

 

Far-reaching Nazi engagement

Alex Jönsson is 22 years old and resides at the the family house in Klagstorp outside Trelleborg, together with his parents. He has in his youth played rugby in the team Pingvin Rugby Club, with whom he in his teens travelled to among other places London to play rugby. He is called Dino by his friends – a name he uses extensively on the Internet, for examples in comments sections of Nordfront and on the anti-Semitic Facebook-copy Oopih. His route into the Nazi organization NMR was supported by Tobias Malvå – with whom he often socializes and posts stickers  – and he has figured on NMR’s home page in connection to struggle-reports about propaganda distribution and study circles.

Alex has been seen at several arrangements orchestrated by NMR, such as the action that was performed during the People’s Demonstration in Trelleborg March 4 2017, when activists from NMR dropped a banner, from the parking garage above the manifestation, with the text ”National Socialist zone”. Alex was then on the roof and held the banner together with other NMR activists, like Danny Jönsson and Kenneth Malmqvist.

Alex was also identified on location in Falun, in NMR’s May Day-march 2017. He had then taken his mothers dark gray Jeep up to the Dalarna province to participate in the march, within which he socialized among others with Jarl Herlitz.

Alex has in various Nazi contexts been spotted using two different vehicles  – both belonging to the family, which has several vehicles registered to it. The Jeep that he has used on several occasions is registered to the mother, whilst the swastika-adorned Volvo that was used during the latest violent attack in Jägersro is his own, bought during the spring.

Violent and unstable personality

Alex Jönsson is a documented erratic individual, which on several occasions has made himself guilty of potentially lethal attacks on people of opposing opinions and  – according to him – undesirables. His propensity to not only resort to threats but also physically assault and try to harm other people was confirmed once again through the attack on the demonstration in Jägersro, when he tried to kill people by running them over with a car.

Screenshot of Alex’ own Facebook-account, from an instance when he stole and burned a so-called Pride-flag.

His violent predisposition and volatile personality is highlighted ideologically by the sides of himself that he has displayed on the Internet, and not the least of all by his well documented Nazi involvement and the fact that he at repeat occurences has tried to run over the demonstrators at Jägersro, destroy their belongings and sought to harm them. Apart from open racism he has previously expressed militant homophobe opinions, through flag burning and participation in Nazi, homophobe contexts.

As of today Alex is formally suspect of several crimes connected to the mentioned attack on the demonstrators in Jägersro – as well as a similar attack the day before the indicated occasion – among others: assault and battery, causing danger to another person, agitation against an ethnic or national group and violating the Knife Act.
