As for executing or deporting these people.. Don't! You may hate them or love them (or hate them) but it's people like this who have helped make Umeå what it is. Honestly.

QUOTE (Mzungu)
Jamtland was historically an independent kingless state governed by the annual thing called Jamtamót, but was defeated in 1178 by king Sverre of Norway after losing the Battle at the ice of Storsjön. This was the last war fought by the people of Jamtland under their own elected leaders. In 1645 the then Danish-Norwegian province was ceded to Sweden by the Treaty of Brömsebro.

Unofficial flag of the self-styled "Republic of Jämtland"

In the 1960s, an independence movement calling itself the "Republic of Jämtland" was created by humorist/actor/director Yngve Gamlin. Motivated on paper as an attempt to return the province to Jamtish control, the republic was given some form of recognition in 1967 when Mr. Gamlin was invited to an event for visiting statesmen hosted by Swedish prime minister Tage Erlander. Described in some sources as a form of criticism against centralized Swedish government and in others as a marketing ploy, it is likely that both played some part in its foundation (Republic officials typically describe it as "51 per cent serious"). The republic has a self-styled flag and national anthem (Jämtlandssången) and the independence movement hosts the annual Storsjöyran event in the capital, Östersund

Must one have to apply for a special passport,would like to migrate to Jamtland from Småland! 8)

*Note Jämtland!


I know, I know, Jamts have been conditioned for so long, that some of us are not consistent in our spelling.

That will change in the New Jamtland, I assure you. We are going to put the "ä" up against a wall, if you catch my meaning. And then there will be discipline for those Jamts who ramble on incessently in foreign languages on internet forums, pointlessly quoting previous quotes, until the forum is a confused mess of...

um. I'll get back to you, there are some people here to see me.
