U.S. & NATO Trying to Use Finland as War Base Against Russia
Thank you for this very moving video [BIW protest] and for that you care! Greetings to all the protesters.
Since the end of the Soviet Union our politicians supported, by a very strong opinion of the people, has continued the interaction in a peaceful way with Russia. Now they try to turn the opinion in all ways.
Still we are many who understand to appreciate a good life in peace. It is still very frightening that not our foreign minister nor our defence minister nor the government as such, seems to care about this, but want us to go closer to the bilateral war exercises with the USA and also with NATO.
Part of the very big Baltops NATO exercise this year in the Baltic Sea was taking place on the Finnish coast exercising invasion - although the main exercise was in other part of the Baltics in June. In May the USA soldiers exercised together with Finnish soldiers a land war in southwest of Finland. There were more than 100 USA soldiers and USA tanks for two weeks and the same amount of time 6 – 8 F15 planes exercising together with the Finnish Air Force near the border of Russia and in fact all over Finland, also here in the North.
We protested in Kemi, and other groups protested near the main bases for these exercises and some of these protests were also seen in the news on television. We are trying to build a stronger opinion against these “war games” which are too dangerous.
I believe the strongest fight is the fight of the minds and this has also the pro-NATO side realised. They have the main media – we have each other.
Still there are also small flashes of hope – at times persons with a good competence and a genuine will for peace get their voices heard in the TV media and the newspapers still print also the writings of us who stand for peace.
