Göteborgs-Posten Cultural Affairs Gabriel Bystrom struck a blow for free speech along with Ragnar Strömberg, Klara Zimmergren, Theodor Kallifatides, Liv Stromquist and Bjorn Ranelid.Inför a virtually packed artist strode Gabriel Bystrom traditionally to speak lectern and announced it 77th edition of the book day. Bystrom, who earlier this fall gave out the Silence triumph for the fledgling right-wing extremism in Hungary, warned that the development where thousands of journalists sacked and opposition silenced can be done quickly if the parliamentary situation permits.
