Sweden: Serial Muslim rapists at music festival were wearing ‘Do Not Grope’ wristbands


‘I asked them to stop… but they grabbed my breasts very roughly’: SECOND Swedish music festival sex victim reveals she was groped by a mob of men as police reveal FIVE more women were raped

  • Five women reportedly raped at Sweden’s biggest music festival Bråvalla
  • Police and organisers under fire for failing to do enough to protect people
  • Three men wearing anti-groping police wristbands assaulted one victim
  • Police say they are powerless when attacks are in the crowd or after dark

 

Five women say they were raped at Sweden’s biggest music festival – on the same weekend as a mob of ‘foreign youths’ sexually assaulted 35 females, one as young as 12 at another concert.

Alleged victims at the Bråvalla music festival told police groups of men attacked them while others complained that they were filmed while using the toilets.

Two teenage girls said a man carried out a sex act in front of them.

An anti-rape activist said she was even sexually assaulted by three men who were wearing ‘don’t grope’ wristbands distributed by police in an effort to reduce such attacks.

Bravely waiving her right to anonymity, Lisen Andréasson Florman relived her ordeal – telling MailOnline: ‘I was standing at the back of the audience during a concert after dark.

‘My colleagues was a bit further away from me when three tall men came up to me. I am quite used to drunk men coming up and talking to me, but these guys were more unpleasant.

‘They were much taller than me and started hugging me even though I did not want them to. Then they started grabbing my breasts very roughly.

‘I felt so small and vulnerable. It was as though I sank down in to the ground. Like there was nothing I could do and I was in their possession. I had felt safe, proud and strong up until that moment, but now it was all gone.

‘I kept asking them to stop, but they only left after my colleagues saw that something was wrong and came up to me.’

Ms Florman added: ‘The ironic thing was that they were wearing the police bracelet with the text ‘don´t grope’, everything was really surreal now that I remember it.’

As well as reports of rape at the festival – headlined by Mumford and Sons – there was one report of attempted rape and 15 cases of sexual assault.

Two of the victims, most of whom were girls under the age of 18, said a man masturbated in front of them, while others said they had been filmed while using the toilets.

Police in Sweden have faced criticism for failing to do enough to protect the 52,000 festival goers.

‘Maybe they want to take it seriously and they are on their way towards understanding after quite some time,’ said Ms Florman, who runs a non-profit organisation called the Night Shift that aims to create a safe environment for women at festivals.

‘But very little is actually being done. When I come up with concrete suggestions for festivals, they don’t take me seriously and they think that I don’t know what I’m talking about. They don’t listen to my advice.’

Police spokesman Thomas Agnevik, who was also at the festival near to Norrköping, said he ‘understands the criticism’.

‘If a crime is being committed obviously not enough has been done,’ he said. ‘Nobody should have to go to a concert and leave as a rape victim.’

But he added said that police are almost powerless to protect festival-goers, as most of the attacks happen among crowds of people and often after dark, making it is ‘very difficult’ for them to spot those responsible.

‘Two of the rapes happened in front of the stage in the crowd, another was in a tent and another in the public bathroom,’ he added.

But he added: ‘A handful of men have been taken in to be questioned as suspects. The victims are mostly young women under the age of 18.

‘I won’t comment about their background but they are young boys aged between 15 and 25.’

Mumford and Sons said they would not play at the festival again until they receive assurances from police and organisers that they are doing something to combat ‘disgustingly high’ rates of reported sexual violence.

They said in a statement: ‘We’re appalled to hear what happened at the Bråvalla Festival last weekend. Festivals are a celebration of music and people, a place to let go and feel safe doing so. We’re gutted by these hideous reports.’

It comes after 35 girls aged between 12 and 17 reported being attacked at the ‘Party in the Park’ festival this weekend in Karlstad, Varmland County.

Some of the alleged victims reported being ‘kissed and groped’ in scenes similar to the Cologne New Year attacks, in which dozens of women reported being assaulted.

One victim Alexandra Larsson, 17, waived her right to anonymity to tell MailOnline she was molested on Friday night having been looking forward to attending the festival for months.

‘I do not know what to think, it is so wrong. Everyone thinks it’s wrong but nothing happens,’ she said.

‘There are large festivals with several thousand people and these mass incidents create a powerlessness for both the police, security guards and especially for visitors who become victims.

‘The perpetrators will be so anonymous in the audience that they will get away with sex crimes. That is the main problem, that the perpetrators get away with it.

Challenge: Police said that many festival sex attacks happen in areas where police have limited access, such as the crowd in front of the stage and the camping areas

‘It’s not okay. I should be able to go to festivals and have fun like everyone else without being afraid. It is wrong, really wrong, but that’s the feeling I have after yesterday. It’s damn hard that ordinary people who just want to have fun should have to suffer just because someone thinks it’s fun to violate.’

Swedish police launched its new campaign a week ago, in an effort to crackdown on sexual assaults at festivals.

Its main objective was to hand out bracelets with the text ‘don’t molest’ at festivals and to start a hashtag on Twitter called #tafsainte (don’t grope).

  1. If only we had all known that handing out ‘don’t grope’ wristbands would stop these people attacking women, such a simple solution and clearly highly effective! Well done the Police that’s telling them, did the other side say but raping is just fine?

  2. How is it that fools think we can live with criminals? They only see us as victims! They obey NO law except sharia and that is carte blanche for criminality if the perpetrator is muslim. Islam is fascism disguised as religion. Remember the behavior of NAZI? Muslim is the same or even worse.

  3. “‘I do not know what to think, it is so wrong. Everyone thinks it’s wrong but nothing happens,’ she said.” – The Swedish mindset.

    “That is the main problem, that the perpetrators get away with it.” – The Muslims have long known that there are little, if any, consequences for brutalizing Swedish females.

    Swedish society is absurd.

    • The Swedes have had it good for so long that they are totally naive to the ulterior motives of everyone else who arrives there. As Dr Pangloss might say, in Voltaire’s ‘Candide’, ‘they live in the best of all possible worlds’.
      Their Viking forefathers would turn in their burial long boats.

  4. Sweden’s the country where the police are actually on record advising young blonde women to dye their hair black so as not to attract the attention of Muslim males.
