Finland is a small country but a very proud one about its political and legal system. Some Finns believe they are, however, so different from other people on this planet and they can’t explain why.
For example…in Finland the law functions like magic; they believe that the law is so comprehensive that no-one in this country can behave in a racist manner and make the same mistake over and over again.
You can ask questions about the political and legal system but no-one will answer your questions…the Finnish system is supposed to respect human rights and give you a lot of freedom but still there’s a reject stamp on each question you ask, especially if it’s about family reunification.
This blog entry is about Sauli Niinistö, the President of Finalnd.
I have never seen him once organize a seminar or meeting with our immigrant community. Have you?
Why hasn’t he??? Is there a Finn that can answer this question? What about a foreigner?
What does Niinistö think about immigrants, refugees, or about me as a foreigner who lives here?
Who knows? Come on! Hands up! Speak up! Why doesn’t anyone ask this question to Niinistö: “Why don’t you speak up and defend our ever-growing culturally diverse society? Why haven’t you shown any interest in us, immigrants and refugees alike?
IS IT FEAR MR PRESIDENT???
Or is it because we are still such a small community that you still haven’t noticed that we’re here?
Small in size maybe but in which respect? In values, in will?
Do you have any news or information about the president’s new, even old thoughts about foreigners?
Can Niinistö understand my suffering – or aren’t I worthy of his attention?
He’s been president of Finland for some time. During his mandate he has hosted Independence Day celebrations at the Presidential Palace. He’s been seen dancing among supermen and superwomen on that day. Everyone has their eyes on him. The media watches him like white on rice but they don’t speak about anything else except how he’s dressed.
I believe the media in this country is materialistic because it is more interested in expensive clothes than in the suffering of others never mind growing social problems like poverty.
Niinistö went on official trips abroad, here and there; he spoke about different things but he NEVER EVER noticed our community, us foreigners, his neighbors who live in same country.
Tell me WHY??????
The rich people of the UAE are just like him. Since the Finnish governments needs money, they only respect rich foreigners from countries like the UAE.
No-one can call me a second-class citizen of this country. I am first-class and will always be no matter what anyone does.
In a nutshell, this is the course of humanity in Finland: Some treat me well while others look down on me.
Those that want to relegate me to the lower human leagues make my blood boil!
