Migrant Tales omistaa videon suomalaisille “anna hukkua” eurovaaliehdokkaille

by

Tässä kirjoituksessa jakamamme video, jonka Migrant Tales haluaa omistaa “anna hukkua” suomalaisille eurovaaliehdokaille. 

Tiestikö, että 36,3%* suomalaisista eurovaaliehdokkaista (85/234) vastasi ”täysin erimieltä,” ”erimieltä” tai ”neutraali” Alma Median vaalikoneen väitteeseen: “EU:n velvollisuus on pelastaa kaikki hukkumisriskillä Välimeren ylittävät Eurooppaan pyrkivät siirtolaiset.”

Selko suomenkielella tämä tarkoittaa, että kyseiset eurovaaliehdokkaat eivät välittäneet tai piitanneet jos ihmiset hukkuvat Välimerellä.

Heidän näkemys asiasta on häpeällinen ja paljastaa heidän poliittisen opportunismin ja jounittelun.

Migrant Tales dedicates the following video to Finnish “let them drown” Euro election candidates

by

Here is a video Migrant Tales would like to dedicate to the “let them drown” Euro election candidates. 

Did you know that 36.3% of Finnish MEP candidates who answered (85/234)  Alma Media’s election compass stated that they either “strongly disagree,” “disagree” or are “neutral” (have no opinion) about the following claim: “Is it the obligation of the EU to save all those migrants who attempt to come to Europe and who are at risk of drowning in the Mediterranean?”

In plain English, it means that these MEP candidates below don’t mind if people drown, or had no opinion if humans drown in the Mediterranean.

Their opinion is shameful. It exposes their political opportunism and chicanery.

Know the names of the candidates. Don’t vote for them.

Austria’s far-right scandal and Laura Huhtasaari selfies with Matteo Salvini

by

THIS STOY WAS UPDATED

What a Saturday! Austria’s far-right FPÖ vice chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache resigns after a video published by two German newspapers offered damaging evidence of him allegedly offering government contracts in return for political support from Moscow, reports The Guardian

According to the Austrian news agency APA, new elections would be announced today by Austrian chancellor, Sebastian Kurz.

The video with Strache, filmed in Ibiza in 2017, was an investigative reporting project carried out by German dailies der Spiegel and Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Perussuomalaiset (PS)* vice-chairperson, Laura Huhtasaai, attended the meeting organized by Salvini in Milano and took a selfie with him offering a poker face in light of the FPÖ scandal and the Lega Nord leader’s close ties with Moscow.

At an election panel on Thursday, Huhtasaari, who appeared visibly encouraged by the PS’ good result in the parliamentary elections of April, gave her interpretation of the Universal Human Rights Declaration.

“All people have the same human value, but human rights are a matter of each state,” she said and which after all hell broke loose with the other panelists after her comment.

Part 2: Mental impact and reality of everyday exclusion

by

In a Migrant Tales’ recent article based on a Maailman Kuvalehti report about the mental suffering of daily racism, we promised some “no filtered” outtakes from interviews with those affected.

You can read the first piece, Part I: Racism causes trauma and mental suffering,here

Eight cases, eight migrants, eight stories, about life in Finland: 

“You meet a shared cult-like mindset at every level of this society. Denial of anything considered unattractive is so widespread that it feels like state-sponsored gaslighting. People here have been taught and convinced that what Finland offers is superior. You eventually realize it’s hopeless trying to get even a closest person to consider ‘other’. This inherent xenophobia and the resultant increasingly hostile environment denied to you is extremely isolating. A double whammy”.

Nicola, UK

“What’s truly maddening is not the absolute absence of process. While abusively deaf and delayed, the process does eventually exists, superficially. It’s that as a Finn your accuser’s unquestionable correctness – and therefore as a non-Finn, your necessary guilt – is assumed a priori from the very beginning. And the show trial and mock process exist to give the fake appearance that this wasn’t simply decided beforehand. The stretched and contorted parodies of a process to which you’re exposed impose more harm than simply never being offered them.”

Ben, UK

“I have experienced how nationalism here goes well beyond national pride, extending to willful denials of reality even in Finland’s Supreme court. This brings an uneasy fear, an imbalance. Justice makes us feel safe but having no recourse, in an assumed developed European nation has a shocking and traumatizing effect.”

Vote in the European elections but not for the “let them drown” candidates

by

EARLY VOTING: 15.-21.5. (FINLAND) 15.-18.5. (ABROAD)
ELECTION DAY: 26.5.


36.3%* of Finnish MEP candidates who answered Alma Media’s election compass stated that they either “strongly disagree,” “disagree” or are “neutral” (have no opinion) concerning the following claim: “Is it the obligation of the EU to save all those migrants who attempt to come to Europe and who are at risk of drowning in the Mediterranean?”

In my opinion, such an answer is shameful and washing one’s hands of the problem. Statement #13 of the election compass reveals to us without a doubt what politicians think about human dignity.

Vote in the European Parliament elections but not for “let them drown” candidates (see list below).

Here is Migrant Tales’ “let them drown” list of shame:

ERR News: Le Pen caught “unaware” of the meaning of the white power sign

by

The leader of the far-right Front National Marine Le Pen was caught “unaware” of the meaning of a white power sign in a selfie taken with Estonian far-right EKRE member Ruuben Kaalep, according to ERR News of Estonia.  

Kaalap removed the selfie from his Facebook page.

What is fishy about the story is that Le Pen claims to have not known the white power sign even if she leads a party that gets it popularity from defending white power and privilege in France and Europe.


Read the full story here.

Le Pen, who was in Tallinn on Tuesday meeting with EKRE members and other far-right parties to ally with far-right groups to set up a new European parliamentary group, thought that the white power signal “means ok,” she was quoted as saying in AFP.

“I was later told that it may have an alternative meaning,” she added. “As soon as I became aware of that, I immediately asked that the photo be removed from the Facebook account.”

The latest white power debacle in Estonia points to one matter: Too many politicians are using it in that country.

In the tweet above, the anti-immigration and anti-EU EKRE ministers gave the white power sign in parliament in April. On the left is Martin Helm, the finance minister, and on the right his father, Martin Helm, the interior minister.

 

Äännestää EU vaalissa mutta ei “anna hukkua” vaaliehdokkaat

by

ENNAKKOÄÄNESTYS: 15.-21.5. (SUOMESSA) 15.-18.5. (ULKOMAILLA)
VAALIPÄIVÄ: 26.5.


36,3%*  suomalaisista eurovaaliehdokkaista (85/234) vastasi ”täysin erimieltä,” ”erimieltä” tai ”neutraali” Alma Median vaalikoneen väitteeseen: “EU:n velvollisuus on pelastaa kaikki hukkumisriskillä Välimeren ylittävät Eurooppaan pyrkivät siirtolaiset.”


Souce: Facebook.

Mielestäni tämä on häpeälistä ja vastuunpakenemista. Väite vaalikonen 13/20 kysymys on selkeä eikä jätä ketään epäilemään mitä poliitikot ajatteleva ihmisarvosta:

“EU:n velvollisuus on pelastaa kaikki hukkumisriskillä Välimeren ylittävät Eurooppaan pyrkivät siirtolaiset.”

Äännestää EU vaalissa muettei “anna hukkua” vaaliehokkaita (katso lista).

Tässä on Migrant Talesin “anna hukkua” häpeälista:
