Around 100 people have gathered in Märsta, north of Stockholm, on Monday in an attempt to stop the deportation of a group of Afghan citizens.
Roughly 50 people are reportedly scheduled to leave on a flight at 9.40 pm heading to the Afghan capital of Kabul.
The goal of the protest is to show support to the Afghans whose applications for asylum have been rejected, and to draw attention to the deportations in Sweden.
"We want them to feel like they're not alone," said Emrika Larsson, speaking to the TT newswire. "With a peaceful demonstration, we want to influence decision-makers. We're using our right to demonstrate to influence power."
