Scania
A Region in Europe
 

In 1991 the SSF became a member of the FUEN (Federal Union of European Nations in Flensborg) and in 1993 of the UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation in The Hague). Concerned about the Swedish Government's lack of respect for the historic borders of Scania, when dividing the state into EU regions, the SSF asked the General Assembly to support a resolution on the territory issue. The support was unanimous.
