Young Swedes SDU, alternatively Sweden Democratic Youth, have been the youth section within the Sweden Democrats since 1 October 2015. The new youth section was founded after the mother party broke ties with their original youth organization after the organisation was accused of racism and ties with extremist groups; the spokesperson of the organization is Tobias Andersson.[1] According to Jimmie Åkesson, the party chairman of the Sweden Democrats, the main purpose of the Young Swedes is to "attract young people to vote for the party" during election seasons, and to "help regrow the party" between election seasons;[2] the group uses a crossbow called the Engelbrektsbåge as their symbol and they describe themselves as democratic and socially conservative with a nationalistic base.[1]
