RESISTANCE MOVEMENT. The Danish branch of the Nordic Resistance Movement held its annual Activist Days event in July, with speeches, lectures, comradeship and activism.
The annual Danish Activist Days event was recently held in Nest 1. The gathering, which lasted from Friday evening to Sunday morning, included speeches, lectures, comradeship, good food and activism.
The participants started arriving on Friday evening, and after breakfast the following morning, the event proper got underway on Saturday with a speech by the Resistance Movement’s national chief, Jacob Vullum.
Vullum’s speech was about engagement in the struggle for our people’s survival, as well as the bleak prospects for those who choose to neglect activist work. He also spoke about how everyone is obliged to sacrifice themselves for one another for the common goal.
After Vullum’s speech, two members were appointed as activists in the Nordic Resistance Movement and were presented with their activist pin badges.
A new Nest Chief was also appointed for Nest 1 – the dedicated activist and speaker, Joakim Johansen.
After the appointments, Joakim took to the stage to hold a speech about the importance of commitment and self-sacrifice in the struggle.
The next presentation was a lecture about violence and pacifism by Swedish visitor Marcus Hansson. The lecture focused on violence in both the animal kingdom and human society, and explored how every non-violent people in world history has ultimately perished.
After the lecture, the MC for the event, Christian Poulsen, announced the big surprise of Activist Days to the participants: a flash demonstration in the centre of Aarhus.
The flash demonstration was a great success, with speeches in three locations in central Aarhus and lots of leaflets handed out. Joakim Johansen served as the speaker, while the remaining activists acted as flag bearers and spoke to people on the streets.
After almost two hours in Aarhus, everyone returned to another surprise. The Resistance Movement had arranged a wilderness activity a week before Activist Days, with three members selected to participate. This exercise was the basis of a documentary film, which was premiered at this year’s Activist Days.

After watching the documentary, which received resounding applause, it was time for dinner, before everyone went outside to enjoy the warm evening weather. Some of the comrades played football, while others cosied up by the fire after a long day.
By Saturday evening, Activist Days was nearing its conclusion, and on Sunday morning everyone said their goodbyes. Filled with experiences, the comrades then went their separate ways with renewed fanaticism and a thirst for new activities and the future of the struggle.
