Definitely not a waste of time!, 18 July 2006
Author: impanse from Sweden

Dramatized story about strikers, black-foots, saw-mill-owners and the military in a small Swedish town in 1931. The military was sent in to stop the strikers that were marching towards one of the mills. Due to inexperience and nervousness in the commanding officer, the order to fire was given and five people were killed. From then on Swedish military has been forbidden to act against civilians, until this summer, when a new law was passed in Swedish parliament. This law permits the police to ask the military for help in terror-like situations, with commanding chief of police as supreme commander. The film is a fairly true revue of what happened that day in 1931.
