This documental comic strip narrates the racial and gender discrimination suffered by the author in her working place. It also narrates the struggles she faced during the summer and fall of 2005 within the labour union, which made visible sexual and racist abuse in Sweden. This is the first part of the chapter “BASTA,” which is part of a series of documental comics called “Invisible Voices”, which try to give space to the voices that aren't listened to in the public debate in Sweden.
