ACTIVISM. Sweden’s Nest 4 were out in snowy conditions to hold a banner action with the message “This land is our land!” on Saturday, 8 January.
Despite snow and minus-degree temperatures, activists went to Ångermannabron bridge in Sollefteå to inspire passers-by and encourage them to assert their right to their forefathers’ country. The message was received in the usual way, with a fairly even mixture of appreciative and angry gestures.
A particularly unexpected and welcome response came when an unknown sympathiser parked his car about a hundred metres from the bridge, opened the trunk and played “White power” music at high volume from the car speaker system. The scene became particularly comical when another driver pulled over by the roadside to shout insults, only to be drowned out by the music.
The activists report that the severe cold did not feel as chilling during the musical interlude. They let the driver know that his interjection was much appreciated, although they lamented the fact that they were unable to meet him and talk further. If the man in question is reading this, Nest 4 encourage him to apply for a membership today so an acquaintance can be made as soon as possible.
After a period of activism – and after the musical supporter had driven off – the action was deemed a success, and the activists went to have a meal together. Despite the cold, everyone was in good spirits during and after the activity, with the Resistance men eager to engage in future activities.
