This coming weekend in the square in Lahti, anti-immigration Close the Borders demonstration and counter-demonstration -An Open Lahti will be held at the same time.

The demonstrations are expected to total more than 2 000 people.

Häme Police Department Detective Chief Inspector Martti Hirvonen explains that the police are preparing for protests.

– We seek to determine the number of participants, and according to that tailor the measures. Before the events we are following closely the discussions on social networks, which in recent days has been a noticeable increase in tensions.

Tightening of the atmosphere is also reflected in Lahti’s street scene.

For example, on the weekend a small melee took place at night in the center, which involved groups of Finnish and immigrant backgrounds. Shouting matches finally ended in fisticuffs.

– The police calmed the situation quickly and the crowd was taken from the scene. Asylum seekers from Hennala were not involved, says Hirvonen.
