SWEDEN. The Tyr Rune flags of the Nordic Resistance Movement were seen waving at the finish line of the Vasaloppet cross-country ski race in Dalarna today.
The 90-kilometre-long Vasaloppet runs between the towns of Sälen and Mora and is a favourite Swedish sporting event watched annually by millions of people. When today’s race concluded, the Tyr Rune flags of the Nordic Resistance Movement were there to greet the victors.
The successful propaganda action has been reported on by a series of media outlets, including the Jewish Expressen. The newspaper stated that the display of the ancient Nordic symbol, which is completely legal in Sweden, has been reported to the police.
“We are there with at least one patrol to investigate what has happened and if any crime has been committed,” said Stefan Dangardt, press spokesman for Dalarna police.
Yesterday Nordfront reported on the chaotic state of police forces in Dalarna, who are involved with the closing down of rape investigations and the downgrading of ongoing serious crimes. However, there are clearly still plenty of resources left for important matters such as the waving of Nordic flags.
Nordfront has been in contact with activist Markus Nordh, who took part in the activity.
Hi, Markus. What happened today?
We had a flag action at the finishing line of the Vasaloppet in Mora.
How did it go?
On the whole it went calmly.
Will there be more similar activities in the future?
The race was won by the Norwegian Tore Björseth Berdal following a successful solo run during the final kilometres. It was the seventh year in a row that a Norwegian has won the race.
