Wall Street protest fever hits Finland

mielenosoitus_narin_440850bThe Occupy Wall Street protest movement originating in New York spread to Finnish cities on Saturday, with people demanding reform to the global financial system.

Around 100 protestors gathered by the Kamppi shopping centre in Helsinki’s city centre. Loosely organised groups also clustered in Joensuu, Jyväskylä, Lahti, Tampere, Turku and Oulu to criticise the country’s handling of the eurozone crisis.

”Our decision makers want to participate in the European bailout fund without hearing citizens’ opinions on the matter,” said protestor Heikki Ketoharju.

Protestors are marching in cities around the world this weekend to call attention to perceived income inequality and corporate greed.
