Swedish Waffle Corporatism

The Swedish Young Pirates association had a tent at a local municipal festival, and were handing out free waffles as an attraction. They were targeted with eviction from the festival after other people who were selling waffles complained to the festival's management.

Guards and police were called in by businesses who were not able to compete with another organization that did nothing wrong. The Young Pirates didn't violate anyone's property rights. They were simply using their own property, their own waffles, and giving them away for free as is their right.
