THE Communist Party of Sweden (SKP) has voiced opposition to membership of the Nato military alliance, describing it as “an imperialist war machine” aimed at the suppression and exploitation of working people.
The party was responding to news that the Scandinavian country is set to abandon decades of neutrality in the wake of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
SKP general secretary Andreas Sorensen said that the conflict has caused a spike in Russophobia and allowed the Swedish bourgeoisie to press the case for Nato membership.
Joining the bloc would see Swedish soldiers and weapons used by the ruling class in the interests of “the Nato-EU-US imperialist bloc,” he told the In Defence of Communism website earlier this week.
“We oppose this and we refuse to be part of a military alliance aimed at the suppression and exploitation of working people all over the world, and we refuse to accept the strengthening of our own bourgeoisie in its struggle for market shares and investments.
“We oppose the system as such and as communists, we can never choose sides in the struggle between bandits,” he said.
The issue of Nato membership will not be decided by the Swedish people with Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson saying on Thursday that putting it to the vote would be “a bad idea.”
