Abstract
The Swedish Easter protest of 2011 against the losses of sickness benefits that were caused by the social policy reforms of the Swedish government was characterized by its decentralized network structure, its rapid progress and its use of the internet and social media for the spreading of information.

The Swedish Easter protest of 2011 against the losses of sickness benefits that were caused by the social policy reforms of the Swedish government was characterized by its decentralized network structure, its rapid progress and its use of the internet and social media for the spreading of information. It is the aim of this essay to use the Easter protest of 2011 to investigate how the Church of Sweden takes position in a social issue. The material for the essay has mainly been media reports from newspapers, TV, radio and blogs. The Facebook has played an important role for the protest as it was one specific Facebook page that inspired people all over Sweden to organise themselves locally. On Easter Monday 2011, public manifestations where held in several cities and towns all around the country, and throughout the process, which started in early January, the deacons of the Church of Sweden seemed to take and keep the initiative. Higher levels of the Church and of Swedish Christendom through the Christian Council of Sweden reacted when the process had been going on for a while. To summarize, the consequences of the social policy reforms had been an issue for the Christian Churches in Sweden since their implementation in 2008, and the initiative of two deacons and one catholic theologian were the sparks necessary to light a fire that would be publicly seen for almost four months and cause much debate over whether or not the Church had overstepped its role in a secular society and become political.
