Resistance Movement’s House of Culture banner not “incitement to racial hatred”


FREE SPEECH. A banner displayed on the House of Culture in Stockholm by Nordic Resistance Movement activists last autumn did not constitute “incitement to racial hatred”, according to the Chancellor of Justice.

The ruling relates to an activity on 27 September 2018, when activists from the Resistance Movement rappelled down the walls of the House of Culture in Stockholm and attached a banner to its glass façade. On the banner were two symbols of the Resistance Movement – the Tyr rune and the Ing rune – as well as the message “Stop the Extermination of Our People”.

After the activity, the Chancellor of Justice (CoJ) received a report of “incitement to racial hatred” due to the ancient Nordic Tyr rune being featured on the banner. However, the CoJ has said it does not regard the banner as constituting racial hatred and will not initiate a preliminary investigation for “breach of press laws”.

“Concerning the Tyr rune, the Chancellor of Justice has previously reviewed this symbol and found that it does not go beyond that which is considered expressible within the limits of the press and freedom of speech regulations,” the CoJ wrote in its decision on 9 July.

This isn’t the only time the system has attempted to make the Tyr rune illegal. In October 2018 a prosecutor began proceedings to attempt to ban the symbol at Nordic Resistance Movement demonstrations.

The pro-globalist justice minister Morgan Johansson (Social Democrats) has even demanded an investigation into the possibility of banning runes in Sweden, despite the symbols being a vital part of Swedes’ cultural and historical heritage.

Severing a people’s roots is a proven way to make that people lost and easy to manipulate and control. As it states in George Orwell’s 1984:

He who controls the past, controls the future; and he who controls the present, controls the past.

At the time of writing, it is unclear whether the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, which also uses the Tyr rune as its symbol, will be an object of persecution from the system.
