The Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) organized a National Socialist
demonstration “Kohti vapautta” on the 6th of December 2017 in Helsinki.
The police did nothing to prevent the demonstration, but practically
assured its realization instead. In many European countries similar
events are prohibited, especially the use of openly National Socialist
rhetoric and imagery. Hitler-stickers were handed out to people
attending the demonstration, the participants gave Nazi salutes during
the demonstration and the speeches glorified national socialism, death
and revolution. Approximately 300 people participated in the event.
