The Workers' Militia or Arbetarmilisen was originally the paramilitary wing of Arbetarepartiet MSAP in Sweden, but was later on transformed into an independent entity governed by its members. The militia was later once again the private paramilitary platoon of MSAP.
The militia fought for internationalism, socialism and against imperialism, and was actively participating in wars all over the globe no matter the national boundaries. It consisted of well-equipped and experienced manpower, but also supplied local anti-imperialist fighters with guns and gifts.
The Unit has been involved in several controversies, especially when they fought against Sweden in wars that they considered to be imperial. The activity in the unit decreased quickly in 2011, but they were active until late 2013.
The militia was completely donation-funded.
The Workers' Militia has been involved in anti-imperialist wars in:
- North Korea (Operation Fire Spark)
- Germany (Third Sweden-Germany War)
- Sweden (Operation Burning Spirit)
- South Africa (Indonesia-South Africa War)
- Serbia (Croatia-Serbia War)
- Mexico (USA-Mexico War)
- Russia's Romanian Scandal.
The Workers' Militia publishes a newspaperwhich served as a main communication channel with its members. Orders and important articles were published there.
