ACTIVISM. On Saturday, 20 March, Sweden’s Nest 7 returned to central Vetlanda to distribute leaflets after the terror attack that took place in the town two weeks previously.
About five minutes into the activity, a police car showed up with two confused policewomen who attempted to talk with the activists. Apparently they had mistaken the Nordic Resistance Movement for another group of dissidents who were also conducting activism in Vetlanda on the same day and subsequently walked off to search for them.
Many Vetlanda residents gladly received the leaflets, with some staying to talk with the resistance fighters; however, rabid political opponents also stopped to argue. An especially crazed cat lady tried to grab one of the resistance fighter’s cameras, but was reproved.
After the Resistance Movement re-established order on the square, the activity could continue without further disturbances. Many interesting discussions arose, including one with the aforementioned dissidents, who praised the resistance fighters when they came by to talk.
A short while before the activity concluded, the policewomen returned, now even more confused, but walked past the resistance fighters and went directly into the mall. Presumably they took the opportunity to do some shopping while waiting for reinforcements from real policemen.
The leafleting at the square subsequently came to an end, and the resistance fighters continued the day’s activism with door-to-door leafleting in a residential area in Vetlanda. When the men had completed the activity and were on their way to reconvene, the police showed up and arrested one of resistance fighters – because apparently it’s an offence to defend yourself against someone trying to take your camera.
The rest of the comrades regrouped at the gathering before dividing up to find their arrested comrade, who was released the next day.
