Organisation Days 2024


EVENTS. On the weekend of 24-25 February, the Resistance Movement held this year’s edition of Organisation Days, which took place in Småland. The event included various kinds of training, a boxing tournament and numerous announcements.

On Saturday morning, comrades from various parts of the Nordic region gathered in a venue next to the Småland forests. Some long-distance guests had already arrived the day before, while others opted to get up long before dawn and drive the whole distance in one go before breakfast.

Nest 7 was responsible for organising the event this year. After all the participants had entered the venue and taken their seats, the opening ceremony began, with several uniformed comrades marching into the room to music, holding flags aloft and appropriately greeting the guests. The host David Wåhlander then briefly presented the day’s schedule and the code of conduct for the weekend.

The first item on the agenda was a short speech by Emma Nordh about the Prisoner Help programme.

Prisoner Help exists so members of the organisation know they have support in everything they do if, for any reason, they have problems with the state due to their political work. Prisoner Help is also intended to help comrades with other legal problems. It was strongly emphasised that everyone must make it known when problems arise so they get the help they need.

Comrades help one another, as we are always stronger together, and this is essentially the only way forwards. The importance of continuously supporting Prisoner Help financially was also underlined, as it can be considered to be somewhat like the organisation’s own insurance policy.

After Emma’s speech, the next item on the agenda was a selection of workshops. Two sessions were held one after the other, with a short break in-between. The choices available varied greatly, including everything from courses in AI, leadership and the Police Law, to more practical things such as first aid. There was also a more dramatic practical exercise in which the participants got to experience what it’s like to be pepper-sprayed. The hosts of the workshops ranged from experienced lecturers from the National Leadership to regular members with specialist knowledge in a certain field.

Shortly after the second round of workshops finished, it was time for lunch. The kitchen team had been working since morning to put together a cabbage pudding they had made from scratch. This was very well received by the visitors, who went back for seconds until everyone was full and content. The break also gave everyone the opportunity for a bit of relaxed social interaction, as they had the chance to get to know comrades they rarely meet a little better.

When the lunch break was over and all the plates had been cleared away, everyone who was going to participate in the annual boxing competition had time to get changed. Tables and chairs were moved to the side and several sets of scales were brought out to correctly divide people into weight classes. A new feature this year saw the fighters divided into lightweight, middleweight and heavyweight classes. The judges noted everyone’s weights and drew up a schedule for the matches. While a warm-up was held for the participants, a boxing ring was set up downstairs, where the audience was waiting.

Warmed up and ready to go, the fighters then jogged down to the basement. Here, for the next few hours, many sweaty and sometimes bloody matches were fought between comrades. The atmosphere was always very positive among the participants and the audience, who cheered loudly from the sidelines. To avoid long wait times for the participants, the weight classes were varied continually and the fights were scheduled one after another. In the end, a winner was chosen in all classes, with two of the victors having previously won Resistance Movement boxing tournaments.

The awards ceremony was scheduled for later in the evening, but before that it was time for Andreas Holmvall to give a talk about what the Resistance Movement’s media department had done in the previous year. The topics covered were similar to those at previous events, being divided into graphics, photos and videos. Various leaflets and banners were displayed, along with a short clip of the best photos, before three longer video clips from public activities were played in their entirety. Holmvall concluded by emphasising how much Resistance Media has managed to achieve despite incredibly few resources, stating that things can only get even better in the future.

Afterwards, everyone had the opportunity to socialise while the kitchen team put the final touches to dinner. There was also the chance to buy literature of various kinds, for those interested. The dinner consisted of meat and potatoes, which, according to many, never goes out of fashion. After the tasty meal, it was time for Simon Lindberg to take the stage.

Lindberg gave a speech about how the Resistance Movement is the best and most highly regarded National Socialist organisation in the North, and perhaps even the world, as well as the most culturally relevant – despite what other nationalist groups may claim. People around the world see the Resistance Movement as a source of inspiration, which Lindberg himself has repeatedly received gratifying proof of via contact with nationalists from all corners of the globe, who seek everything from guidance to direct collaborations with the organisation.

What was said next likely came as a bit of a shock to the majority of the audience; namely that Lindberg no longer sees himself as the most suitable person for the leadership position. Instead, he had decided – on his own initiative and without any intrigue, and with the support of the National Leadership and the Nordic Council – to hand over responsibility to the experienced and trusted Fredrik Vejdeland.

Vejdeland took the stage together with Lindberg, and with a comradely greeting to resounding applause, the change of leader was confirmed. The new leader remained on stage, while the former departed, but not without a standing ovation and cries from the audience, who showed their appreciation for Lindberg’s many years of hard work as leader.

A short speech followed from Vejdeland about how he sees the change of leadership and what he considers its advantages to be. A few brief points were made regarding what will change in the future, but the details were reserved until the following day.

Immediately afterwards, it was time for the awards ceremony for the boxing tournament. The three best competitors in each weight class each received their respective medal, while the fighters who won the gold also got to take home a coveted championship trophy. Both Martin Saxlind and Marcus Hansson retained their titles for another year, despite fierce competition for first place.

The schedule for the day had now come to an end. Most people took the opportunity to get some much-needed sleep, while others stayed up into the night to socialise.

The next day, everyone rose early at 07:00, to account for those who had a very long journey ahead. As soon as breakfast was finished and the venue had been prepared, the first item on the day’s agenda began.

The Nordic Resistance Movement’s new leader, Fredrik Vejdeland, gave a talk about the restructuring that will take place under his leadership. However, he emphasised that the organisation is functioning extremely well, and that things should not be changed just for the sake of change. Still, certain aspects can be improved, with clarifications made in some areas.

The key words here were stability, structure and organisation. Three new goals were also introduced for the organisation to focus on at present. The speech was very well received by the audience. After the applause subsided, the venue was rearranged for the next part of the programme, which consisted of statements from the National Leadership, followed by a Q&A session.

The new leader talks about what is to come

New directives were issued to the participants, certain matters were clarified due to the change in leadership and everyone had the opportunity to ask questions or make comments related to the organisation. After just over an hour, the stage was prepared for the final item on the agenda, which was to express gratitude to everyone who contributed to making the weekend as successful as it was.

But first Fredrik Vejdeland took to the stage again and awarded medals to those who had demonstrated particular sacrifice in the struggle by putting their own freedom at risk for the good of the organisation. The leader also appointed new activists, who all received an activist pin on stage and applause from the audience.

Another leadership change was announced over the weekend, this one at Nest level, in the form of Victor Johansson replacing Hampus Maijala as chief of Sweden’s Nest 7. Victor spoke briefly about how the Nest has grown under Hampus’s leadership and what he himself hopes to achieve in the role of chief.

Before the weekend came to an end, Pär Sjögren stepped forward with a bouquet of flowers and called Simon Lindberg up on stage. The former leader’s work for the organisation was praised and he received the bouquet and a comradely greeting. Next, the rest of the National Leadership came on stage to thank Lindberg, to resounding applause, closely followed by every participant in the room. A fitting conclusion for the tremendous work Simon Lindberg has contributed to the organisation over many years.

Thus, the schedule was completed for this edition of Organisation Days. It was an incredibly rewarding and well-planned event that provided competition, community, education and several surprises.

The organisation is eternally grateful for everything Simon Lindberg has accomplished during his time as leader and wishes the new leader Fredrik Vejdeland all the best in shouldering the enormous responsibility that comes with leading the world’s most influential National Socialist movement!
