Cheryl Jones Fur interview: American-born, Swedish Green Party candidate


The Local features an interesting article with Cheryl Jones Fur, an American-born woman and Swedish Green Party candidate. With the prospect of a second term for the centre-right Swedish Democrat party looming, Jones Fur has agreed that the 2010 election represents an historic moment in Swedish political history.

The usually leftist political orientations of the Swedish government have been sidelined with the rise of the anti-immigrant Swedish Democrats. Jones Fur talks about her experiences as an immigrant in Sweden, and acknowledges the need for debate about the Swedish Democrats’ politics, so that they can be broken down on their merits, or lack of them. She also considers this election an opportunity to start getting Sweden back on track to addressing climate change and sustainable living.
