Expo (magazine)


Expo (magazine)

"Expo" is a Swedish anti-racist magazine, started in 1995 and issued by the non-profit Expo Foundation ("Stiftelsen Expo"). The magazine, issued four times a year, contains investigative journalism focused on nationalist, racist, anti-democracy, anti-semitic and far-right movements and organisations. Expo has no connections with specific organisations or political parties, but work together with individuals and organisations that share Expo's platform. The chairman of the Expo foundation is as of writing Per-Erik Nilsson, earlier head Parliamentary Ombudsman (1978-1987).

The organisation has several parts. Expo Arkiv is an archive over far right and anti-democratic events in Scandinavia. The archive is open for researchers, students and individuals that need information. Expo Research is a research organisation that finds and collects information on racist, anti-Semitic and anti-democratic organisations in Sweden and Europe. The information comes from informants, defectors, public files, authorities, independent researchers and so on.

Expo closely co-operate with Monitor in Norway and Searchlight in the UK. Expo also exchanges information with groups and magazines such as Antifa Infoblatt in Germany, Reflexes and CRIDA in France, Tun Balalaika in Russia, Nigdy Wiecej in Poland and so on, as well as Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights (IREHR) and Center for New Community (CNC) in the USA.

Expo became widely known in Sweden in June 1996, following attacks and threats directed towards companies printing, selling the magazine and organisations supporting it, for instance was the words "Inget stöd till kommunist-Expo" ("No support for communist Expo") painted on the wall of the building where the Moderate Party headquarters is. As a response, the leading tabloid newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen printed the June 1996 issue and distributed it as a free supplement, with a circulation of around 800,000 copies.

In 1998 the financial situation caused Expo to stop publishing the magazine and replaced it with a newsletter. [http://www.expo.se/www/1_124.html] In 1999 the magazine was restarted, now as a part of the magazine Svartvitt. When Svartvitt was shut down in 2003 Expo was again published as an independent magazine. [http://www.expo.se/www/1_383.html]

The Sweden Democrats claim that Expo is part of a government conspiracy against the party. [http://www.sdkuriren.se/expoarkiv_expoindex.php]
