The Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR) "is a National Socialist organization. Aside from Sweden, we are represented and active in Norway and Finland as well, making us the largest nationalistic organization in the North. We work both parliamentary and extraparliamentary."[1]

In 2017, the Finnish Police Board entered a lawsuit which urged the court to ban the Nordic Resistance Movement. The organization states that "The Police Board do not wish to criminalize this political organization on grounds of some criminal activities it’s members have perpetrated, but solely because of the fact that the Nordic Resistance Movement’s political viewpoints is considered to not be in accord with ”good custom”, which is specified to mean that the organization is in conflict with "the views of the current time on morality and justice." [...] Even those who do not sympathize with the Nordic Resistance Movement’s opinions ought to be worried over the actions of the police here. If the politicized Finnish Police Board gets their will through, then they will be able to ban all political opposition on the same phony grounds of being ”against good custom”, even if the court would not deem them criminal in any other way. If the ban is passed in Finland there is also the risk that we will see similar abuse on freedom of speech in other Nordic countries.”[2] Later in 2017, the court prohibited the Nordic Resistance Movement in Finland. The ban has been appealed and is therefore not legally binding.
