Save it for Finns at nearby food shelters.
Iraqi asylum applicants are planning a food strike Lahti’s emergency accommodation unit. Their goal is to get Iraqis in other reception centers involved to protest against the immigration agency’s plans.
The Finnish Immigration Service has decided to freeze the decision-making on Iraqi and Somali asylum applications so far.
The security situation in the countries are being studied. In the future, more and more asylum seekers may be returned to their country of origin.
Currently the idea of Iraqis staying in Lahti is to miss Thursday’s lunch and dinner. Lahti’s Hennala has 359 Iraqis and 22 Somalis.
The majority of asylum seekers all over the country by Tuesday, about 70 per cent, are Iraqi. 17 350 asylum-seekers have arrived in Finland this year.
