In another sign of the ongoing destruction of Western Civ by barbarians: The city of Östersund in central Sweden has decided to cancel its participation in Saturday’s Earth Hour because of the increased rape risk when streets are dark. Earth Hour is an annual event where people turn off electricity for one hour to conserve energy. Östersund usually turns off its street lighting, but has decided to keep it lit due to a spree of sexual assaults. The city recently told women to not walk the streets alone because their safety couldn’t be guaranteed. This sad story follows on the Östersund's police warning a few weeks ago: Police in a Swedish city have sparked an uproar after warning women to avoid going outside alone in the wake of a string of assaults allegedly committed by migrants. In Östersund the difficulties are particularly severe. In the weeks since Feb. 20, the city has seen nine different attacks on women, all of them allegedly committed by non-Swedish men. In one case, three men attempted to tackle and rape a woman in the town square, and in another incident a group of men made a groping attack on a group of 10-year-old girls waiting for their school bus. Finally, on Monday, the city’s police took the drastic step of recommending that women simply stop going out alone at night in order to protect themselves. Since Sweden has very "stringent" gun laws, it's a good thing the good citizens of Östersund can protect themselves simply by staying at home after the sun sets.
