Revolution is the Swedish chapter of an international revolutionary socialist organization called International Marxist Tendency (IMT) which exists in over 30 countries. The outfit is in favour of socialism, and against capitalism – working class should rule not the ones from establishment, not the capitalist class, not the corporates.
Gothenburg aka Göteborg’s unit is led by students aligned to the Marxist philosophy and political orientation. Stefan Kangas and members of the Marxist outfit are active in Gothenburg. They regularly organize seminars, debates, discussions, guest lectures and participate in active politics of public life unlike any other students’ organizations in the quadricentennial or 400-year-old city.
Stefan Kangas talks about the role of the unit, the need to defend the working class, and what could be the outcome of Swedish General Elections scheduled to take place on 9 September 2018.

Revolution aims to confront ‘the absurd riches of the ruling class, created at the great majority’s expense’, want to ‘nationalize the most important parts of the economy – the banks, the mines and the great monopoly – under the democratic control and control of the workers, and drive them according to a social production plan’.
In an interview in 2017, Niklas Albin Svensson from International Marxist Tendency, predicted that Swedish Democrats (SD) can emerge as the leading political party in the 9 September 2018 General Elections.
