The SAC is a venerable anarchosyndicalist organization in Sweden. despite the temptations and repression of both social democratic and conservative regimes in that country they have survived and continued to press an apolitical class organization method.

Sweden, SAC* takes conflict for Pakistani seamen in Stockholm

There is a campaign home page regarding an ongoing conflict with seamen in Stockholm local of SAC vs Ånedinlinjen that is also in english!
