Transnational Republic and State of Sabotage had agreed to join the summit.
The opening ceremony of Amorph!03 took place on August 29 in Finlandia
House, which hosted the legendary CSCE (aka KSZE) conference in 1975.
During the following days the micronations opened temporary embassies
at Harakka island. Here the public could obtain detailed information about
the micronations, their histories, state of affairs and policies. Some
micronations accepted applications for citizenship. During the festival
the state representatives gave public lectures and hosted festivities.
On August 30, 2003, the »State of Sabotage« was declared accompanied
by the unveiling of a monument designed by HR Giger.
