Like we need more Jew haters in the country…..
There is no moral imperative for the importation of people who hold extreme anti-Jewish views into the country, especially during a time when islamonazis implicitly declare that they will (and have) infiltrate their numbers. The overwhelming number of these people have proven to be frauds. This is dangerous stupidity on a massive scale.
NGOs push for action on Syria with Helsinki march, concert
A consortium of Finnish NGOs is staging a demonstration in Helsinki on Monday evening urging the government to raise the refugee quota and to take a more active role in peacemaking efforts to end the Syrian Civil War. It is to be followed by a benefit concert, which Yle is streaming live.
An array of Finnish non-governmental organisations are arranging a demonstration in Helsinki billed as the Save Syria peace march on Monday, United Nations Day. Police advise motorists to avoid driving in central areas of the city between 5 pm and 6.30 pm, when the event is scheduled to take place. Police expect traffic to be disrupted, especially along Mannerheimintie, Kaivokatu, Esplanadi and Unioninkatu.
The march is to begin at Railway Square and end at Senate Square in front of the Lutheran Cathedral, where demonstrators plan to form a large peace sign.
Dozens of organisations are taking part including Lutheran and Muslim groups, trade unions, student and arts groups, as well as rights organisations ranging from UNICEF Finland to the Finnish League for Human Rights and the Feminist Association Unioni.
NGOs call for higher refugee quota
The coalition of NGOs organising the march and benefit concert have issued a statement calling on the centre-right government to take a more active role in the Syrian crisis.
“The Finnish government must do everything it can to help find a peaceful solution to the Syrian war,” it says. “Finland must operate actively within both the UN and the EU to bring the warring sides back to the negotiating table.”
The statement also calls on the state to accept more of “the most vulnerable” quota refugees from Syria.
“Instead of reducing the refugee quota, it should be raised. Refugees in distress must be assured safe routes to Finland and Europe,” it adds.
Yle streams benefit concert
Following the march, there will be a benefit concert at The Circus near Narinkkatori. Yle will stream the concert live beginning at 8 pm. Hosted by Yle’s Rakel Liekki, the show features Finnish pop-rock stars such as Maija Vilkkumaa, Tuure Kilpeläinen, Erin, Vuokko Hovatta, Scandinavian Music Group as well as Somali-Finnish rapper Bizzyiam, Palestinian singer Jowan Safadi, Syrian refugee violinist Refat Zin Eddin and keyboardist Fares Shems. All proceeds go to support aid efforts in Syria through aid groups partnering with the Finnish Foreign Ministry.
The Syrian Civil War has been going on for more than five and a half years. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that more than 300,000 people have been killed, with millions displaced by the conflict.
