Prime Minister Juha Sipilä on Saturday strongly condemned the violent demonstration staged by right wing extremists at Jyväskylä and said such demonstration could not be acceptable under any circumstances.
 
Talking to news agency STT in Kajaani in regards to the Neo-Nazi demonstration, Sipilä said the government parties had not yet had time to discuss the events of Jyväskylä, but the matter would be taken up when they meet on Sunday evening and Monday. 
 
“Of course, this is a police matter. In government we make every effort to see that these violent protests do not become more commonplace in Finland,” said the prime minister. 
 
According to Sipilä, the events reflected, to some extent, events seen elsewhere in Europe by other extreme right movements.  
 
The demonstration in Jyväskylä was organised by the self proclaimed National Socialist Finnish Resistance Movement.  
 
They are against multiculturalism, along with the Finns Party lawmaker Olli Immonen, who has previously been seen participating in similar events with the same representatives of the Finnish Resistance. 
 
Juha Sipilä does not want to take a position on Immonen’s role in the situation.
 
“I can’t and I do not wish to speak about his dealings with them,” Sipilä said, adding that Immonen had discussed his opposition to multiculturalism with the leader of the Finns Party, Timo Soini.
 
“Soini has said that they went through the matter during a summer meeting. I believe in and I trust that Soini and the Finns Party will take care of the situation.” Sipilä also said that there had been no ambiguity or controversy in the government’s multicultural agenda.
