And there was the CONIFA World Cup. The World Cup of minorities and unrecognized States, Östersund and its 50 000 inhabitants, its 10 degrees in the evening, its anonymous (some of them arriving from refugee camps), the 20-0 of Padania against Darfur and even french winners (the County of Nice) !
A strange mix of nations asking their independence, people fighting for their rights and regionalists campaigning for their culture. The June 1st, Assyrians won against Iraqi Kurds, a few months later Kurds save thousand of assyrians in Irak.
