This has me excited! The Board of the Swedish Skeptics just decided on a date and a city for the 14th European Skeptics Conference: 23-25 August 2013, Stockholm, Sweden. Check it out!
The Swedish Skeptics Association (Föreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning) invites skeptics worldwide, and particularly in Europe, to the 14th European Skeptics Conference, 23-25 August 2013, in Stockholm, Sweden. (No, not 2012, when it would interfere with the Mayan apocalypse.) The conference is one in the series supported by the European Council of Skeptical Organisations.
The organisers wish to hear ASAP from prospective speakers and people who wish to suggest speakers. Note that we aim for an even gender representation and for a mix of backgrounds: activists, academics, medical professionals, journalists and more. We also welcome offers of partnership and support from likeminded organisations.
I wish one day we would not need any skeptics movement, having made ourselves obsolete.

I think it is also impirtant to puncture beliefs such as "We [insert name of country] would never do anything like this"
Example of muckraking: "Norway PM 'hated Sweden' for Nazi help" http://www.thelocal.se/41252/20120605/
F*CK! And this is just within living memory.
Looking forward to hearing more about the speakers etc. when we get closer to the event, and I am definitely aiming for being there.
