11.30: Nest 6 begin their activism in Luleå

Nest 6 began the day by gathering outside a large store in Luleå. They stood with a banner, while speeches were held by David Nilsson and Simon Holmqvist. The police were quickly on the scene with vans and a helicopter, which circled above the Resistance men. The police asked a few questions and then kept their distance.

After the speeches, the comrades moved to a bridge in Gammelstaden and unfurled a banner. This action was designed to coincide with the local “Majrundan” event, in which thousands of motorcyclists ride in a procession through Norrbotten and pass under the bridge.

The bridge action was very successful, with a lot of positive reactions from the huge number of motorcyclists who passed by. When leaving the area, people shouted, “Well done, guys!” to the activists.
