STOCKHOLM – Integration turned upside down: Afghan protesters believe that the Swedes have a responsibility to learn Persian and Dari in order for the Swedes to function in “the new society.” So to welcome the Swedes to “the new society,” Afghans now organize language courses in Persian and Dari, Nyheter Idag reports.
The Afghan protest, which has lasted for over a month, requires all deportations to Afghanistan to be stopped. And now the organization behind the demonstration, Ung i Sverige (Young in Sweden), wants to organize a workshop where the Swedes will learn Persian/Dari.
According to the information about the event, which is on Facebook, the workshop is an important introduction to how the Swedes will manage in the new society. Ung i Sverige states that the workshop is an integration project and that it is important for the Swedes to adapt so that Afghans get into society.
Ung i Sverige writes:
“Welcome to learn Persian and Dari, welcome to the new society.
We arrange a workshop in Dari and Persian that all Swedes may come to, with us we have young people to help you learn the language. This is a first introduction to the language and important for you in order to succeed in the new society. We are fighting for our Afghan youths to stay and become part of society, so Swedes have a responsibility to be a part of that society as well. Language is not a barrier to understand each other, it’s a tool! We learn from each other and meet the future together. A society where everybody are together and we shape together. Welcome to our integration project – Persian/Dari for Swedes!”
