Activists took advantage of the final of the "Let's dance" dance competition, broadcast on TV4, to carry out a live action, in the middle of a performance.

Since 2006, Swedish celebrities have followed one another on the floor of "Let's dance" like "Dancing with the stars" in France. Last Saturday, TV4 broadcast the final of the 18th season of the dance competition between comedian Hampus Hedström and ski champion Charlotte Kalla.

It was during one of the stage performances of the latter, associated with the professional dancer Tobias Karlsson, that three individuals appeared on the floor without being invited.


Quickly evacuated by the security service, the three troublemakers had time to scatter yellow powder on the dance floor and wave a banner mentioning the name of their association. One of them was violently hit by a camera attached to a heavy telescopic crane while placing himself in his path. The images suggest that this collision is a deliberate act of the cameraman but, in a program like "Dancing with the Stars", the movements of the cameramen are choreographed and rehearsed in advance.

These three activists are members of an environmental association called Återställ Våtmarker. "Why are we interrupting 'Let's Dance'? We are in a global climate crisis and emissions (of carbon dioxide, editor's note) must fall. Despite this, Swedish politicians and leaders are increasing emissions, according to the association's Instagram account. We also like to dance but we love life more. All effective manifestations are troubling. Creating irritation and debate is not dangerous, it is a prerequisite for getting people to wake up and act. »
