Slaves report.

 

So you hear from me again.This winter has been long and hard, massa Reinfeldt brings new slaves every day. They are already sick when they come and some of dem has not eaten for days. I gave one sick slave my bread one day but the jailkeeper Engström saw me do it. She took me to jail and I had to sit there for four days. I did not get food them days myself. I was so hungry when I came out. Jailkeeper Engström told that this should be a lesson for me.  Then she went to Stockholm and her warden Bermudez-Swanqvist was in charge. She is a hard woman and she likes when slaves are getting whipped. So there is always a slave gettting whipped every day. Jailkeeper Engström have told warden to follow instructions completely. And warden does. She enjoys it.

Warden Bermudez-Swanqvist

They say that spring is coming now. We all slaves knows that spring is here. Massa Reinfedts fields need to be done for next season of cotton. We work all day, with just a little water and some watery soup. The bread is old and hard to chew. But I put the bread in the soup and then it gets more easy to chew. My teeth are getting more and more bad for every day that passes. But I’m glad that massa Reinfeldt has not seen my teeth yet. If he did, he just takes dem. Sometimes we don’t work hard and fast enough. Warden Engström comes and watches us working. She has her whip hanging in a string at the side of her horse. I’m afraid of that big black horse. Don’t want to come near it.

Some slaves work ’til they die. You can se them die on the fields every day. Many other slaves cry when they see that happeni’n. I look yp in the sky and bend my knees praying to The Lord for mercy. But we’ve seen no mercy yet.  So I just work dem fields and say no more. Not for now.

 

There are thousands of unemployed people in Sweden today that are forced into modern slavery by the State Job-Centres. Via this system they are under repression. The system is called Fas 3 in the Jobb och Utvecklingsgarantin, phase 3 and Job and Development-guarantee in english, a quick translation.

This is the end staion for the unemployed who has circulated too long in the general system. All options has been tested with no results what so ever. And it’s not very hard to understand why. A bureaucratic system doesn’t keep tools to work efficiently with the clients as they should. The main reason is that the system doesn’t regard people as individuals. The unemployed people in phase 3 is seen as a group of people that shall be treated with a very strict and controlling management. Just like slaves.

The beneficary-rates are extremely low for these people and many of them are more or less made poor in this way. Since the State has pointed out this working action for them they are doomed to a life in total poverty, forced into a lifestyle with debts that can’t be paid and in the long run made homeless. How to pay for rent when you have nothing to pay with? During this, the status of health undergo a catastrophic development. Because they have no possiblities to get dental care, health care and medications. They simply cannot afford it.

So, the Swedish governement are responsible for making people poor. In total contradiction to their election-promises and political agenda. 

I’ll write more later on from my slavecottage. Hopefully you don’t have to wait too long…
