ACTIVISM. On Saturday the Nordic Resistance Movement held a protest outside the South African embassy in Helsinki against the ongoing white genocide in South Africa.
On 24 March the Nordic Resistance Movement held a protest against the genocide of whites in South Africa outside the South African embassy in Helsinki, Finland. The protesters consisted of activists, members and supporter members from Helsinki, as well as some guests from farther afield.
The demonstration was part of the Week Against Genocide organised by the Finnish branch of the Nordic Resistance Movement in response to the Red Cross’s anti-white “Week against Racism”. The protest went very smoothly thanks to good planning and the complete absence of the police – the latter likely being due to the three other demonstrations held in central Helsinki at the same time.
Once the Resistance Men had raised the organisation’s flags in front of the embassy, activist Janne Moilanen held a powerful speech about the catastrophic situation facing whites in South Africa.
Moilanen made special mention of how white countries do not offer white South Africans sanctuary and protection, despite allowing racially alien “refugees” to flood in. He also described how the situation for South African whites has constantly deteriorated since they were forced to hand over power to the black population following pressure from the West.
After the demo had finished, the activists continued the fight against the Red Cross’s anti-white activities with a public leafleting session in central Helsinki. There they gave out the last of the leaflets and spoke with the public. Like the demo, the leafleting went very calmly. The only interruption came from some unsavoury characters making a racket, which brought a police patrol car to the scene. The police then sat there for hours at the taxpayers’ expense watching the activists give out leaflets.
With the week’s activities over, Nordfront’s Finnish correspondent took the opportunity to interview local representative Rami Joukanen about how he thought it had gone.
Can you tell us a bit about the demonstration today and what you hoped to achieve?
Today we held a flash demo outside the South African embassy. It was intended to protest the genocide of whites in South Africa, as well as raise awareness about the issue.
How do you think the Week against Genocide has gone?
I think it’s gone well. There has been a lot of activism during the week, both in Helsinki and around the country. We’ve held activities on each of the last six days.
How have the public responded?
Most have been very positive and interested. Of course there have been a few “counter-revolutionaries” who just spout their well-worn mantras and phrases at us, but we don’t place too much importance in such people.
How has the reaction been among the police, media and the rest of the system?
As our readers probably already know, the police arrested one of our cameramen and a Nordfront journalist during an activism session earlier in the week. Apart from that, the police have left us in peace. The media have whined and wailed about it. At the start of the week, they wrote about “Nazis” being “scared”, while towards the end of the week they’ve adopted a very different tone. For example, both the Finnish system media and the Red Cross have complained about our campaign and the positive information we’ve given to the public.
What other activities can our Nordic comrades look forward to in Finland?
I can’t reveal anything specific at the moment, but there’s a lot of stuff being planned. You’ll just have to wait and see.
