"We had a strong wish to do something concrete (...) to support the fight for freedom of expression. That is why we decided to make Sigtuna a city of refuge for persecuted writers" local politician in Sigtuna Pernilla Bergqvist says in an interview with Swedish Radio. She also encourages other municipalities and cities to follow their example and become an ICORN member.
Sigtuna is a municipality in Stockholm County in east central Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Märsta.
