While commenting on the organizers’ FB page that was used to promote the march over the past few days, I noticed that they began warning their followers to behave, ”no violence”, ”no burning of flags” ”no trouble making of any sort” etc. etc.
Next Tuesday in Helsinki there will be a pro-Israel rally, the numbers will leave this paltry showing in the dust. What took place in Helsinki yesterday (20.11.2012) was representative of the immediate area of Helsinki, and they could only muster that size of a crowd.
Next Tuesday will see a greater cross section of Finnish society, supporters of Israel (and real peace), coming by bus, car and train to the city’s center from all over Finland. There will be over a thousand, perhaps closer to two thousand I suspect.
NOTE: Only at demo arranged by the Left and Muslims in support of Islamic Neo-Nazis, would such a warning be necessary.
About five hundred demanded a solution to Gaza in Helsinki
Helsingin Sanomat: Palestinian support for the demonstration attracted about 500 people in Helsinki on Tuesday. The protesters opposed to Israel’s attacks on Gaza. They think that Israel attacks violate international law and are causing a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza.
The demonstration was organized by the Finnish Palestinian Settlement Association, together with NGOs. According to police, the event passed off peacefully. The demonstration impeded traffic in the center of Helsinki for an hour or so.
