The Nordic Resistance Movement will hold its annual tribute to the Nordic worker on Monday 1 May in central Sundsvall, Västernorrland County. Pär Öberg, Simon Holmqvist and Anders Gudmarsson are all scheduled to give speeches on the day. The audience will also have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers on stage and socialise with the organisation’s representatives. There may also be a surprise or two planned as well.
