ACTIVISM. Resistance Movement activists conducted a public action at the annual motor show at the Elmia Exhibition Centre in Jönköping on Easter Saturday.
The Bilsport Motor Show attracts car enthusiasts from all over Sweden, as well as a lot of other people, mostly White Swedes.
The activists walked from the gathering place to the show in a united group, past all the queuing drivers, many of whom happily greeted the Resistance men. The police also caught sight of the comrades and followed them to Elmia.
Once the Resistance men were in position outside Elmia’s main entrance, they lined up with flags and two different banners and started handing out leaflets. A lot of people took leaflets and asked the activists questions, which resulted in many interesting conversations. The atmosphere on the scene was very good and it was clear the Resistance Movement was generally popular among the visitors.
The police were not happy with the Resistance Movement’s presence, however. After some deliberations they lied to the activists by saying they didn’t have the right to stand there because they were on private land and the landowner didn’t want them there, adding that they would be forced to leave the site. The activists knew very well that the police were lying as usual and therefore refused to move. The police, who presumably didn’t want to create a scene among all the people, did not enforce any removal. Instead, the officers returned with a new message a while later, stating it was apparently fine to stand in the location.
The police eventually disappeared from the site, leaving the Resistance Movement to spread the National Socialist message to the Swedish people in peace. Many of those present sympathised with the organisation and stopped to converse a while and wish the Resistance men good luck.
After standing in the location for about two and a half hours, the successful activity was concluded.
