Elin Errson, the Swedish student activist who tried to prevent an asylum-seeking Afghan man from being deported, is our new hero. And we’re not alone in our admiration.

On Monday, Errson boarded a flight headed from Gothenburg, Sweden, to Istanbul, Turkey. She refused to take her seat until a 52-year-old asylum-seeker, who was ultimately to be sent back to Afghanistan, was removed from the flight, according to the Hill

Errson live-streamed her protest aboard the flight on Facebook. Since then, the footage of the protest has been viewed 2.9 million times.
