A lone student activist on board a plane at Gothenburg airport has prevented the deportation of an Afghan asylum seeker from Sweden by refusing to sit down until the man was removed from the flight.

Idiot:

"The social work student at Gothenburg University bought a ticket for the flight from Gothenburg to Turkey on Monday morning, after she and other asylum activists found out that a young Afghan was due to be deported on it. In fact he was not on the plane but activists discovered another Afghan man in his 50s was onboard for deportation."

:blush: :lol:

An asylum system needs a method of removing failed asylum seekers.

Therefore provided the man has gone through the proper procedures this lady is an idiot and should be punished for her actions.

Why did they not remove her for not sitting down?

I watched the feed and the photo she showed of the young man she thought she was saving initially was that of a fine winsome looking fellow with fashionable quiff. Completely irrelevant I'm guessing.

It's Sweden. Probably would have been against her human rights or something.

She was filming herself.
The video is all over twitter with people calling her a hero and that she saved this mans life.
But no one when I saw it earlier asked why the man was being deported.

She claimed very clearly that they couldn't fly until she sat down and it seems there was some complicated process to remove her. She.appeared to know the rules.

We're now going to get a spate of copycat stunts like this by SJWs.

Nah, piece of piss. Failure to comply with safety instructions from the flight crew is clear grounds for removal and happens more often than many realize.

She should try that on an Easyjet flight from Gatwick. The passengers would smash her in the face and chuck her back up the skyway ramp. :nod:

Is that universal or subject to local law?

People genuinely think she saved a mans life because she delayed his return to Afghanistan.
Won't the authorities just put the guy on a different flight?

Internationally agreed upon to have passengers be required to follow safety instructions, penalties for failing to do so are down to local law enforcement, however the removal from flight is officially done due to the Captain making the decision, regardless of the location, the aircraft origin or nationalities involved.

Proper protesters (that is to say ones in the pre internet age) would have jumped into the jet engine to draw attention to their chosen issue.

Now we get a video of somebody delaying a deportation by a day or two by standing up.

That’s how EasyJet passengers in Luton are usually boarded into the plane.

I wonder how many nights in No-go Malmo would it take her to jump sides.

She is very sincere. But totally out of order.

Girls of her age and disposition should be at home, breeding children.

fair dues to the girl - got off her arse rather than liking a facebook petition - Regardless of whether or not this other guy is an actual Afghani asylum seeker, there are others that are and are in danger of being deported back to Afghanistan and are rightly fcuked (many from Greece) worst case scenario its drawing attention to the issue.

social justice warrior extraordinaire.

Did she even question why either were being refused before rushing to flaunt her moral superiority? They could have been kiddie rapists for all she knew. But she dont ask those questions because they're foreign and have a moderately different skin tone and shes not a a "racist". Total moron.

I am shocked and astonished at this development:

Quote:
The Swedish student who was branded a “hero” and captured worldwide attention after she stopped the deportation of an Afghan migrant by refusing to sit down on a plane instead prevented the extradition of a man sentenced for assault and whose asylum application was rejected.

Elin Ersson, a student at Gothenburg University, was subjected to fawning media coverage over her stunt earlier this month when she refused to take her seat on the plane until the 52-year-old Afghan deportee was released. She was successful and authorities weren’t able to deport the man.

However, Swedish Police confirmed to Fox News that the man whose deportation Ersson prevented had received a prison sentence in Sweden for assault. The police spokesman declined to go into more details about the crime the migrant has committed. His asylum application was also rejected.

It seems even worse than that, he was sentenced to two years in jail for said assault. What kind of assault could constitute a two year sentence in Sweden?

Douglas Murray has an excellent take on it here: https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2018/07/elin-erssons-citizen-activism-comes-at-a-heavy-price/

Very sad what has happened to Sweden. Still, it does give you an idea what will happen if other countries follow that template so hopefully we all learn from their mistakes.

Whats happened? They decided to not give asylum to someone, decided to remove and an over emotional young woman acted in a manner in line with her emotions?

I'm shocked that this would happen in a country. Shocked I say!
