Swedish Clarté League

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Clarté (Full name in Swedish Svenska Clartéförbundet, or the Swedish Clarté League) is a non-partisan socialist students' organisation in Sweden. It publishes a periodical with the same name, Clarté.[1] The organization was established in 1921, and was in its first years notable for its resolute opposition to Fascism. It underwent a process of radicalisation in the 1970s, when it for a short period of time was openly affiliated with the Maoist Communist Party of Sweden.[2] In 1982, the group was yet again declared to be independent of all political parties, but has since waned in importance and membership.
