Lynge, a Greenlander, is no newcomer to the unionist debate. Since 2013, she has maintained a Facebook page that takes issue with many of the arguments against keeping the kingdom together.
In addition to historic ties and the familial bonds that have formed through intermarrying, Lynge has argued that a unified Kingdom of Denmark is greater than the sum of its parts.
“Denmark has more international clout as part of the kingdom. Without the Arctic, it’s just a bit player. As an Arctic country, we can play a historic role as an influential, visionary nation,” Lynge wrote in a Facebook posting in April.
Greenland and the Faroe Islands, too, Lynge says, also benefit from remaining a part of the kingdom, both through the protection of being tied to a larger country, but also as part of multi-ethnic state.
“There is a lot more that binds us together than divides us. … The diversity that leads to just makes us more colourful and multicultural. How and why would you break that up?”
As one of its first goals, the new organisation will seek to make the kingdom more relevant for the lives of all subjects by making it into a “popular movement” and taking it out of the hands of the bureaucracy it feels dominates discussions about its future today.
