(During the day cops arrested 35 people. Most of them are released by now. 9 people are kept in custody still and 4-6 of them are faced with threat of deportation.)“
nonviolent human chain lock-ons blocked traffic construction
Ob die Polizei auf die friedliche Blockadeaktion mit dem gewaltsamen Angriff aufs Camp antwortete? Ein direkter Zusammenhang lässt sich zumindest nicht ausschließen.

The police attacked the ‚Stop Fennovoima camp‘ at Pyhäjoki – We need help immediately!
Today 28.4. around 3 pm, a riot cops and a police patrol with dogs started to approach the camp. We communicated clearly to the police with a megaphone that they are not welcome, and we don’t want to engage in conflict with them. The police didn’t say anything or answer to any questions.
The police started to shoot people with a projectile / rubber bullet gun and the people at the camp defended themselves by throwing rocks. The police was clearly aiming for the activists heads, backheads and upper bodies with the gun. People got hit several times on the area of their upper bodies. As far as we know, not to the heads though.. The police got hit several times with the rocks, and there was one police car burning up in flames at the area.
After a long struggle with delay tactics, the police managed to move ahead to the camp when the people who were defending the camp disappeared to the forest. In the camp the police shot projectiles towards the kitchen-collective people. The police evacuated all the people from the camp, and took some people into custody.
The police has also threatened to evict another camp location which is still in our use.
We don’t accept giving in to repression and police violence, and the struggle against Fennovoima will continue. Now we’ll need everyone to help build up the camp again, and to continue the fight and actions against Fennovoima. We invite comrades to this fight where ever you are – let’s aim our actions towards the companies which are working with/for Fennovoima, the embassies of Finland, or the local police.“
