Welcome to Independence Day's traditional torchlight procession and wreath-laying on Thursday 6 December 2019! We hope you will participate in this winter event in abundance. We especially wish that organisations with their flags could participate, because Independence Day's torchlight is a great opportunity to show your flags and gain visibility. The event repeats last year's pattern. The students of Student Union, ÅAS and TUO all gather at the Cathedral Square, where we leave in one procession towards the cemetery.
