Joint Statement of the Antarctic Micronational Community
We, the undersigned leaders of the Antarctic micronations, organizations and new nation projects, decisively condemn the actions of Alexey Palkin and of all people associated with the so-called “Antarctic Union”, who unilaterally and without our permission declared us members of this “union”, as appears on the group’s website.
None of the entities we represent bear any connection whatsoever with the group in question, and we call on Alexey Palkin and other people associated with it to immediately remove the mentions of us from their website. Not only are such claims factually incorrect, they constitute a copyright violation and should our demand not be met, we will take all the necessary measures to protect our intellectual property.
We furthermore condemn the so-called “Antarctic Union”’s claims to be issuing “Antarctic passports with visa-free passage to over 100 countries”, offering “houses in Antarctica for sale” and being related to some nonexistent “Bank of Antarctica” as outright fraud disguised in micronationalism, and reserve the right to contact the relevant law enforcement authorities in order to put such activities to an end.
We reaffirm our commitment to Antarctica as a unique natural reserve, free from human intervention, attempts at colonialism and international con artists.
