Christian Gergils: Civil Disobedience in Sweden

Christian Gergils is the founder of the Freedom Front (Frihetsfronten), a free-market activist organization and think tank located in Stockholm, Sweden. The Freedom Front was founded in 1990 and became known for acts of civil disobedience in Sweden — setting up pirate radio stations and owning and operating an underground bar and club outside of state-mandated business hours.

In this speech given at the International Society for Individual Liberty’s World Conference in 1991, Gergils talks about the Freedom Front’s first year and the success of it’s projects, particularly among Swedish students.
