How a Group of Strangers Stopped One Man From Being Deported

October 21, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

When Swedish authorities on Thursday attempted to deport refugee and father of two Ghader Ghalamere by airplane to Iran, something extraordinary happened.

The other passengers on the flight staged a peaceful protest to stop the airplane from taking off.

Ghalamere, who is Kurdish, left his birthplace of Iran years ago due to what he says is persecution—including threat of torture and execution—for his past political activities. He relocated to Sweden, where he was living with his wife Fatemeh, who is a Swedish resident, and their two young children.

After Ghalamere’s failed attempts to efforts to attain residency status for himself, Swedish authorities attempted to deport him to Iran on Thursday, via an airplane leaving Östersund, with Stockholm as its first stop, The Independent reports.

The day of his scheduled deportation, Ghalamere showed up to the airport lounge with family and friends who passed out leaflets about his situation and appealed to fellow passengers for help.
