Sweden is to prosecute the 21-year-old student who single-handedly grounded an aircraft preparing to deport an Afghan asylum seeker.

Elin Ersson broadcast her one-woman protest on Facebook in July, during which she refused to sit down on the flight from Landvetter airport in Gothenburg, thereby preventing it from taking off. The video has been watched 13m times.

Several other passengers, including an entire football team, joined her protest and an asylum seeker was removed from the plane – to applause from passengers.

 

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Good time to review her gender?

I am so glad she is being prosecuted for this!  Her disruption to that flight based solely on her arrogant ignorance...  She can protest and voice her opinions all she wants, but it crosses the line when it disrupts other people's lives - and that flight delay was no minor disruption.  There are appropriate ways to protest and speak one's views.  I can only hope that the USA will also prosecute anyone, from any party or movement or whatever that takes their "right to freedom of speech" and "right to peaceful protest" and abuses it to violate anyone else's "right to dissent".
