Upper Class Safari Favorite 



Jan 29 2012


Stockholm, Sweden

When the activist group Allt åt Alla wanted to highlight the growing inequality in Sweden they decided to hit the road.

A Over Class Safari (Överklassafari) was announced and ticket were sold. The bus ride covered both a working area (Fisksätra) and it's close high-brow neighbourhood Solsidan in Saltsjöbaden. Bus travelers were told to bring cameras and also invited to hear speeches about the Swedish class society and it's history.

The event triggered unprecedented media attention from everything from local paper Nacka Värmdö-posten to Business Insider and the Wall Street Journal.

By making the inequality concrete and something that could be seen, one small activist group succeeded to put class struggle and inequality on the absolute top of the political agenda.
