Zagreb Scandza Forum Postponed

The Plague on the Stairs, Theodor Kittelsen, 1896.

530 words

It is not without a certain excitement that I realize that current events, horrible as they may be, will force many of our contemporaries to reevaluate their blind faith in the Liberal world-view. This isn’t business as usual — and the naive need a wake-up call. But these events also interfere with our own plans.

Considering the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic and related travel restrictions, we are forced to postpone the Zagreb Scandza Forum until later this year. I have waited as long as I reasonably can in order to avoid making a premature decision, but now I can delay no further.

Some European countries have closed their borders for a month and some have even closed their borders without a time limit. We have no way of knowing if the Croatian borders will be open for travelers in late April/early May; but even if the Croatian borders may be open, many other countries may well have travel restrictions that prevent our speakers and guests from going to Croatia.

Under such circumstances, it is impossible to organize a conference. Even if all borders would be open again in time for the event, it is impossible for attendees and organizers to currently make travel plans — and not everything can be left to the last minute. With that in mind, it would be unethical to continue selling tickets and encouraging guests to book flights when it is no longer certain that the event will be possible in early May.

Most importantly, we have speakers and guests in high-risk age groups, and we should encourage them to refrain from traveling until the situation is under control. Their safety must be our number one priority right now.

Rest assured that the conference is not canceled, but only postponed. When the smoke clears away, we will set a new date as soon as possible. A pandemic is the prime example of force majeure, so I hope that you will understand our decision to reschedule. (If you have already bought a ticket, it will of course still be valid at the new date.)

This decision does not come lightly, because we have already made substantial payments which we have no hope of getting back. In other words, this turn of events has already hurt our organization financially. In addition, we have recently been cut off from our credit card processor.

If you appreciate our work, and if you want to help us get through this challenge, please consider sending us a contribution (it is needed!). We will never stop doing what we do, but with your help, we will be more effective.

If you want to send us cash or if you prefer some other transaction method, please email me for instructions: [email protected]

This has been a difficult decision, but I am convinced it is the right one. We will overcome even this obstacle!

    Are there still tickets available? I couldn’t make the original date but I would definitely think about going if I’m free that weekend.

      We will open ticket sales again as soon as we have set a new date.

    Hvordan kan en Norsk organisasjon nektes banktjenester? Er ikke det i mot kontraheringsplikten? (Finansavtaleloven paragraf 14)

    Oh cripes. What a year. Let’s hope the Chinese virus can do more for nationalism than AmRen and Scandza combined.

    Absolutely the right decision. Relatives in Croatia tell me that the country is in lock down. Despite little evidence of Coronavirus in Croatia, its long maritime border with Italy and the large numbers of (in normal circumstances, very welcome) Italian visitors make it vulnerable to the spread of the disease, so there is little chance of a return to normal by May.

    I didn’t even know there was Scandza Forum in my country in the first place.
    Thanks Corona-chan, see you all in Zagreb 🙂

    In these weird times, when many of us are ‘quarantined’ in our homes (at least in California), we need to hang together by the internet, and specifically this Counter Currents site, to keep in touch. Just being able to confer with the folks in now-faraway Croatia is a blessing here. Also, with the enforced work stoppages and slowdowns, we have more time to read new books and re-read the older books we have on our White Nationalist outlooks. Perhaps those of you with a scholarly bent can write a completely new book on the subject.

    I am fervently looking forward to the day when we have entire enclaves of our own people, in firm touch with other such enclaves statewide, countrywide and worldwide. It would be the beginning at least of a White Ethno-state. Since I live in Los Angeles, an epicenter of danger in the face of an epidemic, I would like to have a clean, white-run motel to escape to, but alas, we are not that organized yet. Well, we have a few weeks, at least, of enforced ‘thinking time’ to figure out how we can restructure our future. to benefit our own and save ourselves from another epidemic such as this.

    Keep posting! And again, it is so heartening to hear from our friends in Croatia — I will make it a point to visit there, if and when I can fly again. Thanks for letting us know of your plight. Rest assured that Americans, especially older Americans, are in a tizzy right now as well, not even being allowed to leave our homes except for food, medicine and water. We’re all in this together. Heads up!

    Now to add to Croatia’s woes, Zagreb has been hit by a severe earthquake that has badly damaged much of the old city including the Cathedral. The only silver lining is that everyone was locked down indoors, not out in the streets with lumps of masonry flying around. The street scenes are alarming (but no rioting, looting &c., I wonder why?).
