25 November 2017, Stockholm, Sweden: "Stop deporting people to a country that isn't safe", was the message as hundreds of people from all walks of life gathered at Medborgarplatsen in central Stockholm, to highlight Sweden's Refugee Day, and the way Swedish authorities keep persisting in deporting young people to Afghanistan. The event marked two years since November 2015, when Swedish government officials took a turn towards stricter policies for granting refugee status to asylum seekers, and so a range of civil society organizations, including faith-based organizations, now take a stand for more humane refugee policies. Lawyer Emilie Hillert was one of the speakers: "It's clear that implementation of current policies is perilous, and fails to guarantee safe legal procedures for those seeking protection here," she explained.
