This is an essay in Swedish on the subject of democracy and demonstrations of collective violence. The study is based on a conflict between the youth-house movement in Copenhagen and the state of Denmark - the city of Copenhagen. The focus is over the period December 2006 until January 2008 with reflection on the political movement around the youth-house from the 80's and onwards. This political movement roots back to the late 60's and especially the squatting movement, the BZ, of Europe which had a strong period in Denmark both in the 60's and the 80's. There is also a strong connection to other political movements of anti-fascism, anti-globalisation, queer activism and equal rights. Due to the riots of the conflict concerning the youth-house on Jagtvej 69 there has been an uprising of the BZ, the squatting movement, in Denmark. In this qualitative research theories about the role of a mass protest and the relationship between citizen and state in a democracy, are being used; Such as Charles Tilly and Jürgen Habermas and also anthropological ideas about communication by Margaret Mead. The empirical material is based on personal experience, internet publications up to date and Danish studies on political movements and youth movements. This is a study on how to claim rights of citizens by unlawful methods and how this could be of gain to the democratic state. The stance is to have an open mind about the mechanisms that make established democratic states changeable. (Less)
