FINLAND: DE-RADICALIZATION ORG. SEEKS TO HELP PEOPLE CAUGHT IN RADICAL POLITICAL/RELIGIOUS IDEOLOGIES…….

Good luck with that, while you’re at it, include statists of every stripe……

Sure, try to de-radicalize socialists of both LEFT and Right-wing versions (only right-wing socialists were mentioned in YLE’s article), but the Islamonazis that left Finland for the Islamic State are a more difficult nut to crack. They enjoy a whole community of support (many of which are Muslim Brotherhood connected), Islamic validation (allah ordained) of their actions and motives, in the koran and in the hadiths.

NOTE: Neo-Nazis/ANTIFA nut-jobs don’t have that. It just goes to show how naive and short-sighted these initiatives are.

De-radicalisation project sets up in Finland

A new project in Finland aims to help people caught up in radical political or religious ideologies. The Radinet scheme is targeting those radicalised by extremist dogma, including far-right and Islamist extremist literature.

Those involved in extremist activities may soon be helped to renounce violence by a new so-called ‘exit’ organisation. The Radinet project is funded by the RAY slot machine association, and is the result of collaboration between the Interior Ministry and several organisations opposed to violence.

The goal of the Radinet programme is to help radicalised individuals renounce violence and extremism. Esa Holappa, a neo-Nazi leader who recently left far right politics, is an advisor on the project. The scheme will also aim to help Finns who’ve left to fight in Syria to leave extremist ideologies behind them.

The project has been running since January, and already has dozens of clients among at-risk groups. The organisation has two full-time workers, one based in Oulu and one in Helsinki, along with Holappa who offers his expert advice.

So the pseudo conservative would rather see the un-indicted criminal-in-waiting-for-an-orange-jumpsuit be US president. Screw him, who really cares (outside of Finland) what this jerk has to say anyways?

NOTE: This guy thinks he’s so tough, he knows Trump would never issue an order to invade Finland. Lets hear him dress down the thug president of Russia in a similar manner, a situation that would never happen because he knows that Putin could give such an order.

Experts confused Orpo’s Trump comment – this is how the Minister responded: “If I meet him one day  …”

Finance Minister Petteri Orpo believes that Donald Trump advocates a policy that is not in Finland’s interests.

Chairman of the Conservative Party and Minister of Finance, Petteri Orpo spoke on Monday at a just begun ambassadors event unusually direct words on the ongoing US presidential elections.

Orpo said that he personally hopes that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn’t win.

– I say directly that I personally hope Trump doesn’t win. The world is already in such a fierce turmoil that we need stability, we do not need to add uncertainty, Orpo said.

Rare direct opinion Orpon sparked confusion with policy experts. Ilta-Sanomat interviewed director of the Centre for Parliamentary Studies, Markku Jokisipilä, who deems Orpo’s comments as exceptional. According to him, it has not been so in Finland has a tradition of not taking a direct position on the internal affairs of other countries.

Finland midfielder Hetemaj opts to miss game against Kosovo

Finnish footballer Perparim Hetemaj has refused to play against the country of his birth, Kosovo, in a World Cup qualifier next month. The game is Kosovo’s first-ever competitive international—and Hetemaj could in future choose to represent them rather than Finland.

Finland midfielder Perparim Hetemaj has a big decision ahead of him, as the country of his birth, Kosovo, becomes a fully-fledged international football team. Their first competitive match will be against Finland on 5 August in Turku—and Hetemaj has refused to play for Finland.

Coach Hans Backe, who named his squad for the match on Wednesday, said that he understood the decision.

“We’ll discuss the future in a few weeks, after the first qualifier,” said Finland coach Hans Backe. “The situation is very difficult, you have to respect his decision.”

29-year-old Hetemaj was born in Kosovo before moving to Finland with his family as refugees. He has played 42 games for the Finnish national team and currently represents the Italian team Chievo Verona.

Fifa rules on players declaring for Kosovo remain unclear, but by sitting out the match Hetemaj retains the option of switching to Kosovo down the line.

FINLAND: MASS BRAWL OUTSIDE REFUGEE CENTER, MUSLIM SETTLERS WITH BATS AND STICKS……

Police make arrests after mass brawl outside reception centre

The south-western town of Forssa has seen a violent few days after a group of locals attacked residents of the town’s reception centre. Police detained several people on Wednesday in relation to the brawl and other recent violent incidents in the town.

Police in the town of Forssa on Wednesday detained several people in relation to disturbances outside an asylum reception centre which occurred on Tuesday night.

Witnesses say that a large group of locals approached the reception centre, fighting a group of residents of the centre once they arrived. Police say that both groups used weapons in the brawl.

Police said that video and pictures of the fight, along with lurid claims and rumours about the course of events, including recent assaults in the town, had spread on social media. At present only a few people who were injured in the fighting on Tuesday had come forward, and the authorities are keen for anyone hurt in the violence to inform police.

“I hope that everyone who has received some injury will notify the police,” said Tomi Repo of Forssa police. “Police are only aware of a very small number of injuries, but I believe that there are more.”

The local municipality announced on Wednesday that it was launching a working group to try to stop violence in the town.

“I hope that people understand that violence and these kinds of attacks are always wrong, on both sides, and nobody joins in with them,” said Kaisa Lepola, who chairs the town council’s board.

FINLAND: ”WIND PARK” OPENS ON WEST COAST…….(LOTS OF HOT AIR)

Pure cronyism, as politician/business hacks make money off of public subsidies in a major boondoggle connected to glow-bull worming pseudo science.

The consumer/taxpayer will be the big loser here, they always are. (follow the money)

Finland’s largest wind park opens on west coast

By 2030, wind generation will account for one fifth of Finland’s electricity production, predicts CEO Jari Suominen. He asserts that wind power will set the floor price against which other forms of electricity will be forced to compete.

Tuulivoimalaitoksia peltoaukean takana metsässä.

The site lies between Kokkola and Raahe in Northern Ostrobothnia.

A project billed as Finland’s biggest wind energy development was formally opened on Tuesday in Kalajoki. The Mustilankangas park includes 28 wind turbines in a 1500 hectare area. Its owner, TuuliWatti, estimates that it will generate enough electricity annually to power 140,000 flats or 20,000 detached houses.

TuuliWatti is co-owned by the nation’s largest retailer, S-Group, and St1, which operates a chain of petrol stations along with other energy interests. The park lies 30 km south of the site of the planned Fennovoima nuclear power plant in Pyhäjoki – a project that the S-Group pulled out of four years ago.

TuuliWatti CEO Jari Suominen is bullish about the future of wind power in Finland. He predicts that by 2030 wind generation will rise from its current share of a few percent to 20 percent of the country’s electricity production, alongside hydroelectric and biomass. Suominen argues that wind power will set the base price against which other forms of electricity production will have to compete.

Local opposition

There is still however fierce opposition to erecting windmills in some parts of Finland and Suominen acknowledges that some municipalities have spurned his company’s proposals.

“We’re developing and building our projects where municipalities, local residents and landowners want wind power. Kalajoki is a good example of a place that wanted wind power and now has it.”

Suominen says that the 140 million euros invested in the facility is bringing cash into the municipality.

“The 100 landowners in the Mustilankangas areas will earn about 400,000 euros annually in leases and fees. The municipality is gaining 150,000 euros in annual tax revenues,” he says.

Bigger, more efficient turbines

Along with complaints about the look and sound of the turbines, opponents argue that wind power is over-subsidised and would be unfeasible without public funding. Suominen, too, calls for reforms of the subsidy system.

“It is of course part of an old system that was a product of its time,” he tells Yle. “There was an inherent flaw in that the tariff was fixed and didn’t take into account the rapid technical developments. If this park was built around the turn of the millennium, we would have had to build 300 turbines rather than 28 [of the larger, new type],” he says.

Suominen would like to see the scheme overhauled in a way that would combine market-driven incentives and greater competition.

FINNISH PRESIDENT IS UPSET OVER EU FECKLESSNESS……

No Sauli, the problems don’t come out from nowhere, they sprout from the same geniuses you deride as feeble politicians who end up doing nothing. 

In fact, I applaud their doing nothing, just get the hell out of the way, resign, close the EU doors, and let nation states handle their own problems. Europe has to completely divest itself from the socialist nanny state model, and try free market capitalism and liberty. That is the best safeguard to peaceful nations and prosperity.

Finnish president hits EU over “feeble” decision-making

Speaking to a gathering of Finnish ambassadors in Helsinki, President Sauli Niinistö painted a grim picture of the current status of the EU and of Finnish society. His speech was short on concrete suggestions for improvements in either realm, though.

President Sauli Niinistö has sharply criticised the European Union for what he sees as its weak decision-making and implementation. He spoke on Tuesday to an annual meeting of Finnish ambassadors and senior diplomats at the House of Parliament in Helsinki.

The EU faces an impasse on many issues, one that is “largely self-inflicted,” said Niinistö.

“We all know the steps of this dance: a crisis comes out of nowhere. Summits are held. And then the same thing happens again. And the can is simply kicked down the road. The problem becomes even more intractable,” he observed.

Even when decisions are made, he said, “their implementation often adds up to no more than good intentions,” citing “the feeble approach taken to the joint handling of the migration crisis”.

Niinistö said the EU cannot be “a fair-weather organisation” but that “the signs are not entirely encouraging,” adding that the UK’s Brexit decision is “a serious blow”.

“The EU’s banking crisis, which had already been declared as solved, is making a comeback after the UK’s decision in favour of Brexit,” said Niinistö, adding that “powerful forces are now shaking up the EU.”

FINLAND: 1/5 OF UNIVERISTY PROFESSORS ON CORPORATE BOARDS………

It’s better for them to be involved with businesses, hired for their expertise, subject to the put up or shut up of the free market, than to pontificate their non-realistic abstractions within the halls of government, totally unaccountable for their advice.

Poll: One-fifth of Finland’s professors on corporate boards

Finland’s government has called for better cooperation between the academic community and business in order to translate great ideas into production and boost exports. A recent Yle poll found that one out of every five professors in Finland sits on a firm’s board of directors.

Grafiikka

Image: Yle Uutisgrafiikka

The Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle teamed up with the Finnish Union of University Professors in August to determine how many professors in Finland are serving on corporate boards. The survey was sent to the 2,420 members of the union from August 15 to 17 this year, generating 677 replies for a 28 percent response rate.

The majority of professors responding said they did not participate in business activities. About 80 percent indicated that they did not serve on a company’s board of directors, while the remaining 20 percent said they did. Respondents were asked not to include any companies they may run themselves for lecturing or publication purposes.

Of the 20 percent that said they served on a board, almost 70 percent said their board work was limited to one company. Another 20 percent said they sat on two boards, just over 7 percent were active in three and fewer than two percent were on more than five.

The majority of the companies that academicians were involved with were in the education and research sectors. The second most popular sector among respondents were businesses fell under the ’other’ heading, followed by industrial products and services and health care in third position.

Expertise leads to most appointments

Over half of those professors that served on a board did so in companies that can be considered small and medium-sized enterprises. One-fifth was active in start-ups, and another quarter said the firm was an ‘other’ type. Only three percent sat on the boards of limited liability companies.

By far the biggest reason professors in Finland were asked to sit on corporate boards was their know-how and expertise in the business area or product in question. This accounted for 47 percent of all cases. Less than a quarter said it was because of the contacts they had.

A surprising proportion, 36 percent of the responding professors, owned shares in the company on whose board they served. The same amount reported working for the company as an external consultant. About one in every five academic board members revealed that the company’s business idea was founded in their own research or innovations.

CRONY CAPITALISM BOONDOGGLE: FINNISH MUNICIPALITIES MULLING OVER SOLAR PARKS……..

Groan inducing…….

Spain is often touted for the far reaching ”green” programs, but the truth is that they’ve cost the Spanish consumer greatly, and not delivered as promised. Without massive (taxpayer funded) subsidies, these companies cannot stay in business, let alone generate the required amount of electricity needed for the grid.

NOTE: Finland is not Spain, even in irregular years where less cloud cover is seen it can never come close to the amount of sunlight of southern Europe. Crony business is looking to suck the teat of the taxpayer. These businesses will eventually go belly up, but not before the owners rake in enough cash for themselves thanks to crooked/immensely stupid politicians.

Finnish municipalities show interest in solar parks

The southern city of Hattula, near Hämeenlinna, is hoping to establish a 17,000-panel solar park between the railway and motorway that run through the city. Neighbouring Orimattila and the southwest coastal city of Rauma are considering a similar investment.

Aurinkopaneeleja Ruotsi Vesteråsissa

At least three municipalities in Finland are considering founding solar parks within their city limits to create energy from the sun. A solar park, technically known as a photovoltaic power station, is a large-scale system of panels designed to feed solar power into the electricity grid.

Finland’s largest solar power plant, with a capacity of 420 kilowatts, began operations in June 2015 in northwest Oulu, supplanting the previous holder of the title in Helsinki’s Suvilahti district, near the city centre. Electricity operator Helen estimates the capacity of the Suvilahti solar park at over 340 kilowatts.

The southern municipality of Hattula, located about an hour north of Helsinki in the Häme region, has worked hard to make a solar park of their own a reality.

Hattula’s municipal manager Lauri Inna says the project is in the running to be one of Prime Minister Juha Sipilä’s key ‘new energy’ projects.

“We have delivered a sizable investment support project package to the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment concerning a solar park and an associated biogas production facility,” he says.

The biogas facility would make use of biomass from the local community and agriculture, in addition to the solar-powered electricity.

The planned 17,000 panels would require a large tract of land, and about 10 hectares would have to be reserved. Inna says the exact location is still open.

“What is important is that the project moves forward harmoniously, with landowner cooperation, utilizing municipally-held land. However, our main objective is to take advantage of the land between the railway tracks and the motorway in several areas,” he says.

Enough to power 2,000 homes

The park is expected to produce enough power to supply up to 2,000 single-family homes for a year.

“We are talking about a 5-5.6 megawatt power plant that is calculated to produce between 6 and 7 GWh per hour. This is equivalent to the annual production of two wind turbines,” the Hattula municipal leader says.

He hopes that Hattula will receive government support for the investment. A decision is expected at the end of the year.

“Only once the support has been confirmed can we make our final investment decisions and begin construction. It is certain this won’t happen until 2017,” says Inna.

Finland has committed to an EU goal of 20 percent renewable energy by the year 2020. In addition to its solar options, the country is developing biofuels from forest industry by-products and looking into expanding its wind power alternatives.

FINNISH COURT REJECTS MOTION TO CLOSE DOWN ANTI-MASS MIGRANT (WHAT THE F*) WEBSITE……

The owner resides in Spain….

It’s a real bottom feeder type of site, and outside of few good breaking stories, it has lots of Jew hatred from Magnetti Media that I’ve posted on from time to time. So it’s one of these sites I’m not happy about, though I’m glad some form of free speech observance is still recognised in Finland.

Court throws out motion to close down anti-immigrant website MV-Lehti

A Helsinki district court has rejected a petition by police to shut down the anti-immigrant website MV-Lehti. However the court has sealed the arguments used in arriving at its decision.

MV -nettilehden etusivu.

On Friday the Helsinki District Court overturned a petition by Helsinki police to shut down the MV-Lehti, an alternative news website that police suspect of disseminating false information and encouraging hate speech.

The Helsinki police department called on the court to terminate online communications coming from a certain IP address owned by OVH Hosting Ltd, Net9 Ltd, and the sole trader NP Networking, and which is responsible for publishing MV-Lehti and Uber Uutiset, a sister site to MV-Lehti with similar content.

The court did not disclose the arguments behind its decision.

Inaccuracies, distortions, suspected copyright infringements

Police had previously received dozens of criminal complaints about MV-Lehti. They determined that several of the site’s articles may have been inaccurate, distorted or fulfilled the criteria for copyright infringement.

The inflammatory website was founded in 2014 by Spain-based Ilja Janitskin, who also owns a number of other websites.  MV stands for “Mita vittua” (in English What the f***?) and the website became a talking point after publishing a series of vitriolic articles about migration and other subjects.

The site gained a wider following in Finland since large numbers of asylum seekers began arriving in Europe and media began reporting on crimes committed by some of the new arrivals. The website’s articles were published without attribution, so none of the contributors were known.

In July Finnish media reported that the both the MV-Lehti and Uber Uutiset websites were no longer available.  At the time Janitskin had posted a notification on his Facebook page indicating that the site’s Finnish servers had been taken down and would be reinstated elsewhere in due course.

FINLAND: MUSLIM SETTLERS’ CLAIM OF ”RIGHTS INFRINGED”, PRIOR INSPECTIONS FOUND NOTHING WRONG, HARD LEFT HARPS WHINERS…….

How about the violation of the sensibilities and rights of the taxpayer forced to pay for all this crap?

The Finnish Immigration Service has called on the Kangasvuori reception centre to respond to two of the complaints. It has also conducted routine inspections of the facility and has found that it operates by the book.

Complaint: Jyväskylä reception centre violating asylum seeker rights

Private individuals have lodged complaints with the Parliamentary Ombudsman over the treatment meted out to asylum seekers at the Kangasvuori reception centre in Jyväskylä. The complaints claim the facility run by the Finnish Red Cross, SPR, has infringed on occupants’ rights. The SPR has refuted the allegations.

Turvapaikanhakija katsoo ulos.

The office of the Parliamentary Ombudsman has confirmed receiving complaints charging that a Jyväskylä asylum seeker reception centre has been violating residents’ fundamental rights by actions such as refusing required medical care. The complaints describe the atmosphere at the Finnish Red Cross-run Kangasvuori reception centre as shuttered and “prison-like”.

The grievances also refer to several instances in which occupants felt that they had not been provided with adequate care for conditions such as mental health problems, chronic illnesses or dental care issues.

Complaint a year-long process

The complaint was filed by six private individuals from central Finland, some of whom have a history of volunteer work.

The complainants are calling for an independent inquiry into the state of affairs at the reception centre. However they said that they are not aware of similar problems at other local reception centres.

“There have been problems with health care, and apparently some sort of violence, nighttime raids and police intervention. The asylum seekers don’t feel safe,” said one of the centre’s critics, Jyväskylä’s Left Alliance city councillor Irma Hirsjärvi.

According to Hirsjärvi the complaint was based on accounts provided by asylum seekers, as well as employees and volunteers working at the facility.

Yle interviewed one resident who had been granted asylum. He claimed to have gone without required medical treatment during his stay at the centre. He added that the atmosphere had been tense.

“There are people whose behavior is inappropriate. They only give us instructions, nothing else. Some of them [deliberately] try to provoke us,” the young man said.

Hirsjärvi said she hopes the allegations will be thoroughly investigated.

“The complaint has been the result of a process lasting nearly one year, during which time there were first discussions with Kangasvuori, the Finnish Immigration Service and even within the Finnish Red Cross. Some efforts have been made to remedy the situation, but in some fundamental respects it is still the same,” the councilor noted.

SPR dismisses allegations

The management of the Kangasvuori reception centre and SPR’s western Finland chapter have refuted the claims presented in the complaint. The reception centre would only respond to Yle via email.

Reception centre director Matti Hautala said that the relationship between his staff and the centre’s residents is constructive and professional, and he added that issues such as health care services have not been a problem. Hautala said that police had been summoned to the centre primarily to deal with tensions arising from residents’ use of alcohol.

The Finnish Immigration Service has called on the Kangasvuori reception centre to respond to two of the complaints. It has also conducted routine inspections of the facility and has found that it operates by the book.

The relationship between the Finnish Church’s ”Finn Church Aid (KUA)” appears to be extensive, they (Antti Pentikäinen Exec-Direct) arranged a fact finding trip with KUA’s leadership, along with Anas Hajjar (Syrian MB imam spear heading grand mosque drive) and the leading Shiite imam, Abbas Bahmanpour, to CAIR’s facilities earlier this year.

KUA has been courting sharia driven Islamic voices for some time now, as well as sticking it to the pro-Israel Christians within the Lutheran Church, Antti Pentikäinen spear headed a move a few years ago to keep church spaces free from pro-Israel advocates, and going so far as to smear these Christians as having threatened him, though failed to produce one scintilla of evidence.

The Finnish Lutheran Church is up to its neck in Hamas linked Muslim Brotherhood types pushing ”anti-Islamophobia’ memes in political, media and social networks. They have been fully infiltrated by Islamic hardliners using Western norms of tolerance and coexistence in pushing their Islamic/anti-Western sharia driven agendas.

Church publication of islamofobia picture confuses

Picture meme gave birth to angry feedback because it included the CAIR organization logo. According to the FBI CAIR is directly linked to Islamist Hamas.

Juhani Huttunen

The church published on Facebook Wednesday, 101 Reasons to belong to a church -series, a new picture under the title “The medicine for fear.”

The playful picture offers against Islamophobia, an Islamophobia named medicine which, among others, helps “thoughtless bigotry” and “blind intolerance”. Each pack contains a “Warning:. May lead to peaceful co-existence”

– The picture is bubblegum package, which is derived from Finn Church Aid Shoulder to Shoulder division, which aims to promote cooperation and understanding between religious communities, in particular to prevent radicalism, says the Church Council social media team leader Lari Lohikoski .

Islamophobia-gum package is part of the  Council, on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) organization’s (established in 1994) anti-Islamophobia campaign launched last May. The package is clearly labeled with the CAIR logo.

– Finn Church Aid has been involved in the project with the CAIR organization, which is obviously a major player in role of peace outreach. The church and its organizations are already the most important factors in inter-religious dialogue in Finland, says Lohikoski.

White House guest

CAIR on its website declares that “the leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding”, which is responsible for, among other things, to improve information on Islam and encourage dialogue.

Since the September 2001 WTC attack, CAIR was an important cooperation partner with the White House. US Federal Bureau of Investigation also had a long cooperation with CAIR.

The cooperation between CAIR and the FBI, ended however, in 2008, when CAIR in its start-up phase financially assisted the Holy Land Foundation, whose members were sentenced up to 65 years in prison for multiple connections to terrorism, including the financing of the Islamist Hamas.

 CAIR was not  charged in the trial in question, and has not been convicted of a crime. Its work continues as normal.

Hamas cover the organization?

In the autumn of 2015  the FBI’s evidence in the report made public, however, says that CAIR will switch directly to the sponsoring of organizations and Islamist Hamas.

The report shows that CAIR’s founders Nihad Awad , Omar Ahmad and Nabil Sadoun are former Palestine Committee (PALCOM) organization members. PALCOM is according to the FBI, a cover organization for Hamas. According to this report PALCOM held a meeting, stating the need to set up a new support for Hamas organization in 1993. The aim of the meeting was to gain support for Hamas, enabling it to terrorize the Oslo peace talks going on between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation PLO.

The message in the photo relates only to irrational fears, to which the Church and Christianity are the medicine. – Church board’s social media team leader Lari Lohikoski

In 2010, the United States expelled from the country Sadoun who sat on the board of CAIR, because he was considered to be a member of Hamas. The United States does not classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, but President Bill Clinton’s administration classified Hamas as part of terrorism in 1995.

Cuban volleyball players charged with aggravated rape

Pirkanmaan käräjäoikeuden rakennus ulkoa kuvattuna. Talon edessä poliisiauto.

A Tampere district prosecutor has brought aggravated rape charges against six Cuban volleyball players detained by police in Tampere in July. The men had been competing in the FIVB Volleyball World League finals and were also to have taken part in the ongoing Olympic Games in Rio.

Tampere District Prosecutor Leena Koivuniemi has charged six members of Cuba’s national men’s volleyball team with aggravated rape. The athletes are accused of having committed the offence against in a Tampere hotel during the FIVB Volleyball World League competition at the beginning of July.

All of the accused have denied committing any crime.

The writ was delivered to the Pirkanmaa (Tampere region) District Court on Tuesday but has been sealed, at least until court hearings begin.

The Central Finland Police department took over responsibility for the investigation when the men were picked up during the course of the qualifying games. Police originally rounded up eight suspects, but two were released shortly afterwards.

The men were remanded into custody shortly after police detained them early last month. All have since appealed the remand decision, but their appeals were thrown out by the court.

The players were members of Cuba’s national men’s volleyball team and were to have represented their country in the Rio Olympic Games.

UPTICK IN TURK ASYLUM APPLICATIONS IN FINLAND AFTER FAILED ‘COUP’ …….

Fethullah Gulen and his supporters are islamonazi as much as the AKP itself, we are not doing ourselves any favors in letting them into our countries.

Small spike in asylum applications after Turkey coup

Last week eleven Turkish citizens sought asylum in Finland. The number is equivalent to nearly a third of all the applications received from Turkish citizens up to the end of July—but the Immigration service says it could be a blip unrelated to the recent failed coup and subsequent purge.

Finland has seen a slight uptick in the numbers of Turkish asylum seekers this summer. Numbers are still small, however, and the Immigration service says that it might not be related to the failed coup and subsequent purge in Turkey.

Up to the end of July some 34 people had asked for asylum in Finland after leaving Turkey. Just last week eleven Turkish citizens filed asylum claims, representing almost a third of the number for the whole year.

Turkish émigré sources say that the group of asylum seekers in Finland include supporters of exiled cleric Fethullah Gülen, who Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan accuses of directing the putsch attempt.

Turkey is demanding that Gülen be extradited from the United States, where he currently lives, and has demanded that Germany surrender Gülenists living there.

After the coup failed the Turkish government closed schools, universities and other institutions, arrested journalists and thousands of other individuals it said were involved in the coup attempt.

It would be shameful for them to run into us in the street. They do not want to lose face in front of their community.”

Eyewitnesses reported seeing three people wearing burkas and black gloves driving around Hamburg’s Wandsbek district in a black VW.

They said a sticker with an Islamic logo and the words Sharia Police was fastened to the car’s bonnet.

There were also reports of another incident in the Dammtor area of Hamburg where witnesses claim to have seen five to seven masked people sitting in a van.

Islamic and ISIS symbols were said to be hanging from the vehicles rear-view mirrors.

The sighting were similar to incidents reported in thew city of Wuppertal near Düsseldorf where a group of people who wore vests with the words ‘Sharia Police’ urged passersby to stop drinking alcohol and refrain from gambling to ensure strict Islamic moral laws were being observed.

Police and politicians said they were unaware of the latest reports but a local councillor said the authorities needed to keep close eye on the situation to ensure the incidents were not repeated.

FINNS KOWTOW TO BIG GOVERNMENT STATISM AS FUTURE GENERATIONS LEFT TO TANGLE WITH PUBLIC DEBT…….

That’s if Orpo’s budget proposal goes through……

We already pay a whopping tax on gasoline, the statists/neo-statists want more to pay off their buffoonish funding of muslim settler migration in Finland. (Gas costs on average 1.45 per ltr / $3.80 a gallon).

An end to seven lean years? Finns respond to budget proposal

Finland’s new Finance Minister Petteri Orpo presented his first state budget proposal on Thursday. It is generally seen as a less punishing version of his predecessors’ efforts, in that it included income tax relief and no major spending cuts. Yle caught up with a few Finns on the street to ask them their thoughts on the proposal.

The Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle conducted a man-on-the-street interview with several Finnish passersby recently, after Petteri Orpo unveiled his maiden budget proposal as finance minister Thursday.

Analysts expect that Orpo’s proposed tax-relief measures will put an average of 13 more euros in middle-income earners’ pockets each month. Income taxes paid by wage earners and pensioners will be cut by 0.5 percent on average, while the tax on sweets will be cut by less than a euro.

Taxes will rise in other areas, however: a pack of cigarettes will be 50 cents more expensive if the proposal goes through, and the price of petrol will rise by 2.5 cents a litre. Another major proposed change would reduce the percentage of housing loan interest that can be written off in taxes from 55 to 45 percent.

Always look on the bright side

Orpo declared on Thursday that his budget would put an end to painful austerity policies and return around 400 million euros to taxpayers’ pockets. The general reaction when Yle conducted a man-on-the-street poll of Finnish passersby was one of cautious optimism.

Helsinki pensioner Leena Hilokoski-Björkbohm had a clear message for Orpo: No cuts to health care.

“Pensioners’ budgets are very small, so this should be taken into account,” she says. “Taxation on pensioners could be cut from current levels, too.”

Helsinki pedestrian Marja Häkki admits that she hasn’t taken the time to learn much about the latest budget proposal, but says she did take notice that Minister Orpo has proposed incorporating the chicken pox vaccine into the national immunization programme.

”It will create lots of savings because people won’t miss work. Chicken pox usually continues for a long period, keeping people off the job,” she says.

Häkki says she is optimistic about the future, and has faith that the sitting government can turn the stagnant Finnish economy around.

Debt is here to stay

Kokkola resident Anita Välimaa says her family will be most affected by the changes to petrol and housing costs.

“It will probably have a 50/50 effect. We have to use our car and pay off our loans, but I doubt we’ll be eating any more candy now that we did before,” she says.

She says she can’t judge the wider effects of the budget, but says that even if the state were able to mitigate its outstanding debt, the scourge of national debt is here to stay. She also doubts that the country’s citizens have much say in the government’s budget decisions.

“Maybe we Finns are just getting used to having the government decide for us, humbly accepting their decisions,” Välimaa says.

FINLAND: LEFTIST/FEMINIST POLICIES GET THEIR DESIRED RESULTS, FINN BIRTH STATS WAY DOWN, WORST SINCE 1896……

The pill and abortion working hand in hand, in other words, progress!

This is how you kill off a nation. The Left and Feminists will respond that we need more muslim settlers to fill in the gap, and the feckless neo-statists like Alexander Stubb will say that they’re right!

NOTE: You’ll never hear a statist/neo-statist demand that the state offer some incentive for native women/parents to have more children, nope, the only answer is to flood the nation with people (in a totally un-managed way) from here to eternity. This article is just laying the groundwork for that call.

Population projections reveal shocking future trends

Finland is home to fewer children now than at anytime in the last century. In a decade the number of pensioners will exceed the number of working-aged adults. The latest projections from Statistics Finland paint a sparse and elderly future.

The population structure of Finland is changing as births are down, old people are living longer and native-born Finns are moving away. Yle compiled four graphs based on data from the state-owned number cruncher Statistics Finland that outline the developments we can expect to see in the near future.

1. A pensioner boom will set in around 2029

Drawing from 2014 statistics, Statistics Finland predicts that the number of pensioners will exceed the number of 18-40 year olds by as early as 2029 in Finland, a trend that will continue for at least the two decades that follow. It will be matched by a corresponding long-term decline in the number of young and middle-aged workers.The projected changes are based on Finland’s current population structure. The baby boom generation born after Finland’s wars are retiring en masse, and are likely to live longer thanks to improved medical services.

2. The last time there were this few children was in 1896

Some 120 years ago there were about as many children under 15 as there are today, despite the fact that there were only 2.5 million Finns then, less than half of today’s national population.Lowered fertility accounts for a significant portion of this vast drop. In 1896 Finnish women gave birth to an average of 4.6 children. Today that figure is 1.65 children. Statistics Finland reports that since 1969, the birth rate has been below the population regeneration rate, which is 2.1 children per woman. No dramatic changes have been recorded in average family size since the 1970s.

Preliminary data from Statistics Finland shows that in the first six months of this year 26,517 children were born. In relation to the time period in question, this number is the lowest it has ever been in the history of Finland as an independent state.

The number of births in the first half of 2016 was 753 lower than that of deaths, which takes us to the next graphic.

3. Mortality rate will overtake the birth rate

Finland’s mortality and natality rates have been steadily approaching each other since the wars, as shown in the accompanying graph. In 2015, there were only 2,980 more births than deaths in Finland.As a matter of fact, Finns are currently moving abroad at such a rapid pace that the country’s end-of-June population of 5,493,577 would cease to increase already this year, if it were not for immigration.

4. Native-born population begins its decline

Finland’s population increase – meaning the sum of births, deaths and net immigration – is in the black thanks solely to people moving here from abroad. In 2015 Finland’s total population increase was a mere 370 people.Statistics Finland estimates that growth will be sparse in the future, too. Relying on statistical data from 2014, Statistics Finland anticipates that only 36 municipalities will see an increase in population in the year 2040, if immigration is excluded from the equation.

FINDIANS…….

Not to be confused with ”Afro-Finns”…..

The story of Finns’ distant cousins

TEXT SILJA MASSAPHOTOGRAPHY MEERI KOUTANIEMI

Part Finnish, part Native American

In the Great Lakes region there are people with roots in Finland and among indigenous North American peoples. It’s impossible to know how exactly many of these so-called ‘Findians’ exist, but their numbers are estimated in the hundreds. Author Katja Kettu, journalist Maria Seppälä and photographer Meeri Koutaniemi documented their lives over the course of three years. Their experiences form the basis for their book, ‘Findian country’.

A pow wow is a social gathering held in many indigenous North American communities. Dancing is a way of honouring participants’ ancestors.

Descendants of immigrants

Between 1860 and 1924 some 370,000 people left Finland for North America to seek a better life. The main reasons to emigrate were unemployment, social problems and the period of ‘Russification’ before Independence–but a desire for adventure was also a factor. In America Finns worked in the forests and the mines. While out in the woods and at trade union meetings they met Native Americans and even married some of them. The majority of marriages were with members of the Ojibwa tribe, the largest in the region. Finns tended to have less knowledge about their new home country–and therefore also fewer prejudices about the people native to the land.
