The ones hiding their true feelings are the morons who pretend to defend human rights while championing those who would smash those rights. They also hide their true intentions of erasing borders once for all, the ramifications of that should scare any sane individual..
Police have detained three counter-demonstrators who disrupted the anti-immigrant ‘Close the Borders’ demonstration in Helsinki Saturday.
According to the Helsinki Police, the persons apprehended were disturbing the otherwise peaceful procession, and so the police held them until the demonstration was over and charged them a fine for insubordination.
Mika Hentunen, a reporter for Yle described the people who were removed from the demonstration as “leftist radicals”.
There is an idiom in Finnish that ‘to use something as a hobby horse’ is to use something as a pretext for your true intentions. The group of counter protesters were all riding hobby horses, likely meant to accuse the demonstrators of hiding their racist motivation behind what they say is their interest in keeping the country safe.
“A few carloads of riot police and mounted police were on hand,” Hentunen reported.
Hentunen estimates that some 150 people took part in the Close the Borders procession, which began at Helsinki’s Kamppi square and proceeded down Mannerheimintie to end at Senate Square. The demonstration culminated in a candlelit vigil on the steps of the Helsinki Cathedral, in honour of a 17-year-old girl killed one year ago in the northwest city of Pori by an Afghan national.
Helsinki Police say about 200 people turned out for the anti-immigrant march, dwindling to 100 by the end. A similar procession took place without incident on Saturday in the western coastal city of Pori.
