Statement on Nordiska Asa-Samfundet

Friday, May 19th, 2017

by

In these times racist, fascist groups have been advancing their hateful agenda on many fronts. Heathenry is no stranger to this, having faced our own long struggle with such groups.

It has recently been confirmed, thanks to the journalism work of Huginn’s Heathen Hof, Nordiska Asa Samfundet is one such group. Additional investigation has uncovered incontrovertible evidence of their whole-hearted embrace of such ideas & beliefs.

Translation: “We Scandinavians are an indigenous people. Stand firm against cultural appropriation from status quo-extremists in the modern liberal society. There is an intentional anti-Nordic rhetoric. There is an ill will against us. There seems to be an ongoing agenda to annihilate us. Just like the other indigenous peoples we were colonized by another civilization. This hydra has oppressed our people enormously through the times. They burned all our, in the tradition and science and herbs etc. knowledgeable ones alive. Asatru was forbidden because it was the history of our people´s tribe. They are the stories of the creation of the universe and the lines of our people. Propaganda is spread with the purpose of damaging and marginalizing us. They invent terms to gloss over our rights to a language and tradition of our own and they try to forcefully assimilate us. We are not allowed to be ourselves and think independently. As soon as we are the least proud of our people´s history and the ancestors we are declared idiots and punished. They use historically correct scientific empirism as a method of reducing and trying to control the flow of fact. They arrange a climate where we are always pushed back and discriminated against. They have the government and the ugly media behind them.
The government hires experts to gloss over our existence. We are trolled away in lies and cover-ups. When we try to organize ourselves and stand up for our rights we are called evil white fanatics. However, eventually dignity wins and history will punish our enemies very hard. If you are unaware that you are hurting us and support ethnic discrimination of Scandinavians then you shall have to study yourself better. Think before it is to late!!! Hail you Nordic people, you ancient and free. All the best to you.

Making matters worse are their ties with the widely shunned Asatru Folk Assembly.18402814_10210666653795079_3676266845792053322_n

And their ties to the far-right, racist political party the Sweden Democrats:

When confronted on these matters they have defended their actions and refused to budge.

We, the members of Heathens United Against Racism, denounce them for what they are. We oppose them, shun them, & consider them to be outcast, outlawed, & indefensible. So long as they hold such beliefs we will stand against them in defense of our community & Heathenry.

We urge Heathens from across the globe to join us in our stand. There is no space in our community for this rot that has gnawed at us for too long. Just as Heathens around the world came together in Declaration 127 we ask again that all stand in a united front for Heathenry by shunning & denouncing Nordiska Asa Samfundet.

We welcome any groups who would like to add their names to this statement & join us in standing strong for Heathenry’s future.


Light the Beacons 2017

Stand together for inclusive, hospitable Heathenry!

On this coming May Day we call on all Heathens around the world who stand for inclusive, tolerant, and diverse practice to light a beacon in solidarity with all other Heathens who stand for these values in our spirituality. Whether you are lighting a candle in your home with your loved ones or are hosting a bonfire party open to the public we ask you help us shine a light on all the good work, good practice, and good people in Heathenry across Midgard.

This practice has deep roots. In ancient and medieval times different groups and societies across Europe had chains of bonfire beacons they would light as a warning of impending attack and to rally people to the defense of their homes.  Last year Heathens from over 200 locations across Midgard participated in our first lighting of the beacons.  This year, as turmoil, struggle, uncertainty, and fear’s shadow looms over all, we hope to do even better.  Together we will be the light holding back the night, the spark igniting the fire of resistance, and the shield between our community and those who seek its demise.

If you choose to participate please take a picture of your beacon, whether it is a candle or a roaring bonfire, send it to HUAR with the number of people who participated and where, in terms of the nearest major city or region, it took place. If you want to organize a public bonfire event please send us the information and we will help promote it. Together we will ignite a fire in our hearts and homes that will push back the shadows of fear & ignorance, shine light on our honor, and rally the hopes of Heathens everywhere.

If you are participating in this event and posting your fires, no matter how large or small, please send the pictures to us via Facebook or email at contact@heathensunited.org and post them through your own social media accounts and websites using the following hashtags:

Together we stand for inclusive Heathenry and a brighter future for all!


Solidarity Statement with Whitefish

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

by

We, the members of Heathens United Against Racism (HUAR), are horrified by the news coming from Whitefish, Montana. As we have learned an armed gang of neo-Nazis is threatening to march through the town on January 15th to intimidate residents participating in anti-racist action into silence & compliance. They have further threatened Montana’s Jewish community and are organizing virtual lynch mobs to harass & defame these people for refusing to accept the presence of notorious white nationalist Richard Spencer in their midst.

We stand with Whitefish.

We stand with the Montana Jewish community.

We stand with all who fight organized bigotry in their homes & communities.

We call on all HUAR members & supporters, Heathens, Pagans, & people committed to the cause of inclusivity to stand with Whitefish however you can. If you live in the area be at the ready to oppose any attempts by Richard Spencer & the Daily Stormer’s goon squads from marching through Whitefish. We ask everyone to donate to the Montana Human Rights Network.  If you need help in reaching our members on the ground participating in these actions please reach out to us via contact@heathensunited.org.

“If evil you see & evil you know speak out against it & give your enemies no peace.”

Declaration 127

hvars þú böl kannt kveðu þat bölvi at ok gefat þínum fjándum frið


D127sticker2-5The organizations listed below represent a truly diverse set of voices within modern Heathenry. They represent national organizations, resource centers, local kindreds, as well as a plethora of authors and community leaders from every possible branch of our religion and walk of life. These independent organizations have signed this article due to a single shared interest. (more…)


We are Going International!

Monday, September 5th, 2016

As of last night Heathens Against Racism UK has officially become an affiliate of Heathens United Against Racism!  Everyone please join us in welcoming HUAR UK into the fold as our first national section!

Related to that we are restructuring things a bit so that, as an organization, we can act more effectively locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.  Along with HUAR UK we are also forming two new sections to better organize our efforts: HUAR US and HUAR Canada.

If there is anyone anywhere in the world whose locale is not currently part of an existing HUAR section don’t worry!  You are always free to join HUAR International or, if there are enough people in your area, organize a new section for action in your country and contact us directly for more information on how you can affiliate with HUAR.  If you are already part of an existing section and there are lots of folks in your local area who are interested in doing more you can organize a local chapter and ask your section for their approval to be a chapter of HUAR.

Through better organization, communication, solidarity, and work, locally and globally, we will build a strong, inclusive Heathenry for all!
