The first round of deportations will start in the Restard Gård near the southern city of Gothenburg, where some 2,000 refugees have been placed, mostly since 2015 when a massive migration set off through Turkey to the European Union.
Kurdish activist Rebwar Rahim who has campaigned against the planned deportations said that many of the refugees are families with underage children who often have nothing to return to in their home countries.
“We have collected a group of volunteers, lawyers and activists, and will be present at the camp to show solidarity,” Rahim told Rudaw.
The Swedish social democratic coalition government reviewed an earlier decision regarding the number of refugees it could provide asylum to during 2016 and reduced it to nearly half of the 163,000 it had initially announced.
The new wave of migration has almost polarized the Swedish society with virtually one in two voters supporting the deportations, according to a Gallop survey conducted in April.
Many of the refugees are reluctant to leave the camps despite being informed by the authorities and some have said that they would seek asylum in the neighboring countries if the pressure continues.
“We are not willing to leave since we have suffered a great deal to reach here,” said Parinaz Ahmadi, a Kurdish migrant at the Restard Gård.
