Anarchism in Sweden
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.[unverified] Today it has about 7,500 members[unverified] and still publishes its own weekly paper, Arbetaren.
The well-known author Stig Dagerman remained an anarchist for his entire life.
