ACTIVISM. At the end of September, activists from Nest 2 gathered to protest against the Skövde Pride festival and inform the townspeople what the LGBTQP lobby really stands for. The activists were also forced to deal with a large and unruly man who thought he could disrupt the Resistance Movement’s action.
The Resistance men arrived in the Pride area on Hertig Johan’s square in central Skövde at around 12.30 p.m. They made a short stop at St Helena church, on the east side of the square, where a large man was seen watching and photographing them. When the Resistance men moved from the church, the man followed them for just over 100 metres to the other side of the square. He then positioned himself in the way of the banner. Below the Resistance men can be seen passing him beside the church.
Despite several appeals, the man refused to move, after which he was finally reprimanded. Aftonbladet subsequently reported that someone was said to have been taken to hospital with a split lip and possibly a missing tooth during the activity…
The Resistance men then went on to where the pride parade was taking place and gave out leaflets.
