A Short Film on Smash Asem in Helsinki

Now you can have a look on Smash Asem demonstration in Helsinki, Finland, a demonstration which never actually happened because of the Finnish police's actions. A short film is filmed by Mr. Jere Leskinen, a student of journalism at Helsinki Polytechnic Stadia. Jere Leskinen says that You tube is perfect for social issues and it never occurred to him to offer the film to other media. See the film from here or go to You tube and find it under the name "omniholic".

In the end of the film there is a man in front of the police chain with his cell phone. He is Paavo Arhinmäki, a representative of Helsinki City Council and member of Finnish Left Alliance. There was accusation against him that he pushed the police and provoked them to arrest him, but as the film testifies such provocation did not happen.

The video is amazing! Proves the point that it was the *police* who performed a demonstration.
