A school without any traditional Finnish surnames

A primary school in Eastern Helsinki has 532 pupils representing 22 different languages

By Irina Vähäsarja

Somali, Finnish, Urdu, Finnish Finnish, Finnish, Somali, Finnish, Finnish, Persian, Russian, Somali...
These are the first twelve languages in the list of the mother tongues of first-graders at the Keinutie Primary School in Helsinki’s suburb of Kontula.
Yes, this is one of those schools, where one in four pupils has an immigrant background and in which none of the pupils answers to the name Virtanen.
A school that some might tell you is no longer good enough for everyone.

A week ago Helsingin Sanomat reported that some of the parents in the Greater Helsinki area have started to regard with disfavour schools with a high proportion of immigrants.
The parents fear that the teacher’s time is spent on children who do not speak Finnish, and as a consequence, their own children’s learning could suffer.
”In a way, I get their point, as they do not know what the school’s weekdays are like”, says Arja Rasilainen, who is teaching the fifth-graders at the Keinutie Primary.
Well, what are they like? Let us go and see.
”Why is Kaaba important for Muslims?”
Teacher of Islam Abdelhai Azzouzi is projecting a picture of a mosque onto the whiteboard.
As one has to pray to that direction, the fifth-graders and sixth-graders know. On the other side of the corridor, some other fifth-graders are looking up Ecclesiastes in the Bible and what it tells about Tuonela (the name for the realm of the dead or the Underworld in Finnish mythology).
The lessons of various religions are held at the same time. It makes it easier to to find slots for "S2" lessons (Finnish as the second language) and all other native language lessons in the timetable.

The 532 pupils in the Keinutie school represent 22 different languages. Sixth-graders Hamida Asir and Ayaan Moge would like to study Somali for more than just two lessons a week.
”One can forget one’s own language”, Ayaan Moge fears.
Finnish is used in all of the other classes, and it is recommended that Finnish would be spoken even during breaks. The school operates under the terms of the majority in many other matters, too.
Suvivirsi, a Christian hymn that is traditionally sung when the schools close for the summer holidays, has not been abandoned.
”Our policy has met with approval. It is possible to negotiate with the teacher, if the guardian of a child does not want the child to take part in one of the lessons”, says principal Timo Mustonen.
Uusmaalaisten laulu, the Song of the People of Uusimaa, can be heard from the music class. The fifth-graders are training pesäpallo (”Finnish-rules baseball”) on a sand pitch, trying to catch the ball - some of them are wearing scarves.
On the other side of the field, there is the Nalli School, an annex to the Keinutie Primary School. The branch school has a total of 100 pupils.
Miikka Särkiniemi, who is teaching second-graders does not sign up to the claim that the teacher’s time is overly spent on immigrant children.
”It is true that there are vast differences between the pupils’ language skills. I am just trying to follow the mainstream and hope that everyone can take home something”, Särkiniemi notes.
In fact, Särkiniemi is more concerned about the fact that special education teachers have to spend time on bridging the gaps between various S2 groups.

The Keinutie Primary School gets financial support from the city to cover costs of ”positive discrimination”. The funds are allocated on the basis of the parents’ education level and income, as well as the proportion of pupils with an immigrant background.
The support has been used to employ additional teachers and special needs assistants. Some of the immigrant pupils start their school in a preparatory class.

Keinutie is the nearest school for children living in the suburbs of Kurkimäki, Kivikko, and around Keinutie itself. About nine in ten children living in these districts choose the Keinutie Primary School for the first years of their education.
”Of those who do not come to our school, one may start school at the Finnish-Russian School, another may choose language immersion, while a third one wants to attend the Christian School”, principal Mustonen lists.
Principal Mustonen does not regard the selection of schools according to the proportion of immigrant pupils as a great threat - at least not in Eastern Helsinki, where practically all schools are multicultural.
”The parents put the most weight on the school’s ability to take care of its fundamental duties”, Mustonen believes.
Päivi Räisänen’s daughter goes to the Keinutie Primary.
”If she were to be starting school now, I would perhaps reconsider the matter”, Räisänen says. According to her, the school is restless, which is partly attributable to the number of immigrants.
Jani Rautiainen, the chairman of the parents’ association, is more satisfied. His daughter goes to the Nalli branch school.
”We have nothing to complain about. It is only a bonus that the environment is multicultural”, Rautiainen notes.

Let us ask the pupils. What is the Keinutie Primary School like?
”Nobody is bullied or left alone”, says fourth-grader Joonis Mohamed.
”We hold on to equality between various cultures”, asserts fifth-grader Benjamin Rosenberg.
In addition, pupils have fun at school, it is neat, and there are lots of friends and the best teachers.
The food is good, though not always.
Occasionally some pupils squabble and fight, and there are those who pee on the floor of the school loos.
Nothing more earth-shattering than that.

Default Concerns about growing racism in Savo and Karelia

No violence from flash mob invitation in Lieksa Tuesday evening

Quote:
Police in North Karelia and North Savo are concerned about increasing manifestations of racism in the area.

Police in the eastern town of Lieksa were informed that young people in the area had been invited on Facebook to convene on Tuesday evening in a suburb with a large immigrant population under the heading “Who’s afraid of a black man?”

Police patrolled the centre of Lieksa and its suburbs on Tuesday evening and the early hours of the night. A few dozen young people showed up on the scene in their cars. Police checked the identities of those who showed up.

Officials did not witness any conflicts with immigrants during the time of the enhanced surveillance. Police are nevertheless investigating whether or not the invitation and the related events might fall within the definition of a crime.

In Iisalmi, in the north of Savo, police have had reports of residents of immigrant background being targeted by verbal abuse. Racist graffiti has been seen in public places, and in one case, a young woman was threatened with physical violence.

Veli Pallonen of the North Savo police says that the threat was preceded by racist taunting. Two local men have been questioned on suspicion of attempted aggravated assault.

Default Roma camp in Kalasatama evicted in massive police operation

Quote:
About 40 police officers emptied the makeshift camp set up by Romanian Roma in the Kalasatama area of Helsinki on Tuesday.

In the massive operation, up to seven police cars surrounded the Satama Social Centre. The centre’s door was broken down, and police officers in riot gear climbed on the roof of the building. Police dogs and a police bus were also on hand, says a Helsingin Sanomat journalist who was on the spot.

The approximately 30 Roma who were there were given an hour to vacate the area. A leaflet written in Romanian instructed the Roma to go to the day centre maintained by the Deaconess Centre, where further information would be available to them.

The City of Helsinki is not offering accommodations.

“They have been instructed over the past two weeks to set up camp at a camping ground at their own expense, or to contact their embassy or the day centre. The main policy line is that the city is not arranging accommodation for them, and that they must get by on their own”, says Jarmo Räihä of the Helsinki Social Services department.

The Roma left the area peacefully. They had not been notified of the exact eviction day in advance.

“We have no place to go. We were given an hour to leave, but we have no car or any possibility to take our things with us”, said Regina, whose comments were translated by Keiju Oksanen, a Satama activist. Regina said that she had lived at Satama for over a year.

Oksanen said that not all of the Roma who had been living in the centre were present during the eviction, and their goods were left behind. They are to be taken away. Some cars and caravans were also left behind the fence that is being put up. They are to be towed away by the City of Helsinki.

The Public Works Department of the City of Helsinki has started putting up a fence around the social centre. The area is to be cleaned, and the Satama building is to be demolished starting on Wednesday.

Default Finland: Kärkkäinen fined on publishing information about Jews

Quote:


10/21/2013

The court ordered that the Kärkkäinen have to pay a fine of 90 days, which means an amount of 540 €.

Criminal conviction is due to Kärkkäinen MagneettiiMedia magazine and its website in autumn 2012 and spring 2013 on publication about Jews.

The District Court of the writings contained information and opinions, which clearly slander or insult Jews.

"Scripture must be regarded as typical and as a serious anti-Semitic propaganda. The statements are likely to raise intolerance, contempt, and possibly even hate the subject of the ethnic group, "the court notes.

The court ordered also that the company will have to pay 45 000 euros fine. According to the court by J. Kärkkäinen Oy is guilty of "incitement against an ethnic group".

Suspected female Finnish jihadist posts armed threats on Facebook

Finnish security services say they are investigating a suspected Finnish female jihadist who has posed with weapons and published threats against Shia Muslims on the social media website Facebook.

The photo uploaded to Facebook shows a burqa-clad figure posing with an assault rifle and brandishing what they claim is a suicide bomb device.

A comment on the page - written in Finnish - says the woman has come to Syria because “there are lots of Shias to kill.”

A spokesman for the security services Supo said the woman is known to them, but said they are not taking a concrete position on the written comments.

Human trafficking victims usually face work-related exploitations, according to the Finnish Immigration Service and Joutseno Reception Centre.

The victims of work-related exploitation are usually tied to the job and cannot get out of the situation.

They are, for instance, not paid for their work and their families are threatened.

In spring, a lot of sexually abused people came to the nationwide administered system of victim assistance. Those people had been abused before arriving in the country.

In June, a total of 77 people were within the system of victim assistance. Most of the victims come from sub-Saharan Africa or Asia.

Finland will seek compensation from the EU if last week's sanctions on Russia lead to an economic crisis in the country, Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said on Wednesday.

"It is without doubt clear that, if sanctions hit Finland disproportionately, we will seek support from our European partners," Stubb said at a press conference.

"We have to stick to the principle of economic solidarity. In practice, this means that those member states most affected by the sanctions should also receive some form of compensation."

Stubb did not specify what type of compensation he would demand.

Finland struggled with recession in 2012 and 2013 and is already feeling the effects of weaker trade with neighbouring Russia since the beginning of the Ukrainian conflict.

The Bank of Finland estimates a three-percent fall in the Russian economy would shrink Finland's output by 0.5 percent.

"I dare say that there is a potential risk of -- and I stress that it is potential -- an economic crisis 2.0," Stubb said.

"The indirect impacts of the sanctions can be significant."

Finland's government presented its annual budget on Wednesday, adapted to take account of the possible effect of a weaker Russian economy.

The budget focuses on boosting growth, with measures such as reduced taxes for lower income groups to increase domestic demand.

"Recovery is in the air, but there are a lot of risks which cast a shadow on Finland's economic situation," Rinne said.

"Ukraine is the main risk."

The European Union announced broad economic sanctions against Russia last week, including limiting access for Russian state-owned banks to Europe's financial markets, a ban on arms sales and curbing trade in sensitive technologies that will hit Russia's key oil sector.

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin retaliated with an executive decree banning or limiting food and agricultural product imports for a year from nations that have imposed the sanctions.

Russia has already halted some food imports from a range of European countries and has threatened to limit the amount of chicken products it buys from the United States.

The steps announced by the Kremlin also forbid companies in Europe and the US from striking future deals in Russia's vital oil and arms sectors.

Springtime economic news seemed to show signs of improvement, as export markets saw an upward turn and employment figures looked hopeful for the first time in years.

But autumn is now to bring with it a new bout of bleakness in the job market.

”Looking at all these recent employer-employee chats and the slow-down in economic growth, I’m sorry to say that we have a very difficult autumn ahead of us,” says CEO Pasi Holm from Pellervo Economic Research PTT. “The number of employed will decrease and unemployment will rise.”

Major Finnish companies like Itella, Fazer, VTT, Sanoma, Valio, DNA and the Radiation and Nuclear Sagety Authority (STUK) have all announced recent layoffs or codetermination talks.

The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK) calculates that the last two months have seen more job losses than before. For instance, in July 1,000 employees were let go, while at the same time last year only 200 people lost their jobs.

Fewer companies now put their workers on furlough, instead choosing to terminate their agreements entirely. The reason for this, says Pekka Tiainen from the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, is the record-breaking economic slump. Many firms simply cannot afford to wait for better days.

Open positions few and far between

At the same time, the number of open jobs in Finland has fallen even lower. Statistics Finland’s figures this week state that some 28,000 positions are currently available, 15 percent less than last year.

For many getting the axe, this means that a new job is unlikely to be waiting behind the corner.

”Firms aren’t advertising new positions as easily as they used to, because they believe the ongoing slump will only continue or get worse,” Holm says. “Some people may retire with no one to take their place.”

Tiainen, who is a Doctor of Social Sciences and long-time job market researcher, considers the current employment picture to be unusually severe. He says a large number of those now unemployed are so-called backstairs jobless, who do not register in official figures.

“We are at about 450,000 out-of-work people right now, which clearly constitutes mass unemployment,” he says. “Over the course of the year the situation will reflect on various groups of people. Last year 650,000 people were unemployed when some were laid off while others were re-employed. Unemployment directly affects the lives of a million Finns, either through personal experience of familial relations.”

Statistics Finland’s official stats say that the country’s unemployment rate for July was 7 percent, 0.4 percent more than a year previously. Unemployed numbered at 193,000. Unemployment also fluctuates periodically – for instance, Statistics Finland notes that there were 296,000 unemployed in May.

Default Same-sex marriages get green light from Finland’s MPs

Quote:
The Finnish parliament has approved “gender-neutral” unions by a narrow margin, bringing it in line with other Nordic nations and becoming the 12th European nation to do so.

The law will give homosexual marriages in Finland the same rights as heterosexual ones, with couples being allowed to share a surname and adopt children.

The vote margin of 105 to 92, with one MP absent, was expected to be even closer.

“Finland should strive to become a society where discrimination does not exist, human rights are respected and two adults can marry regardless of their sexual orientation,” said Alexander Stubb, the center-right prime minister, in an open letter before the vote.

But opponents to the law argued that children have the right to a father and a mother.

“This is a question of the future of our children and the whole of society, and such changes should not be made without thorough evaluation of their impact,” said Mika Niikko of the nationalist Finns party before the vote.

The result was a triumph for supporters of marriage equality who gathered around the parliament in Helsinki on Friday afternoon, as the results of the vote were released. Shouts of “I do” were heard as they waved rainbow colored flags.

There was also a much smaller group of opponents who had turned up, although there were no reports of violence or disruptive behavior, and local media described it as a carnival type atmosphere.

The law will force a number of changes to other legislation, which will take a long time to finalize and is not expected to take effect until 2016 at the earliest.

Thousands of people have resigned from the Lutheran Church in Finland, after the nation’s parliament approved a same-sex marriage law and the church’s archbishop expressed support for the vote, Finland’s Yle News reported.

By late Saturday, around 7,800 people had officially resigned from the state-supported Lutheran Church via an online service, which was specifically created to ease the registration process.

The resignation frees the individuals from obligatory church membership taxes, which is where the majority of the Lutheran Church’s income comes from. By the end of 2013, some 75 percent of Finns – 4.1 million people – were listed as members of the church.

Which of the eurozone’s 18 member states will be the weakest performing economy in 2015?

Italy, which has recorded no economic growth since 1999? Cyprus, which is still reeling from its financial sector collapse in 2012-13? Or some other hard-pressed southern European nation? No. In all probability, the sick man of the eurozone will be Finland.

The Finnish economy is in its third consecutive year of contraction. Any growth in 2015 will be not much bigger than a snowflake. The country will hold a general election in April. The question is whether the dark outlook will benefit The Finns, a populist-nationalist party which was known as the True Finns when it shocked Europe by coming third in the 2011 election with 19 per cent of the vote.

The case of Finland is a striking example of how prejudices and oversimplifications fail to capture the complex economic realities of the eurozone. After the Greek debt crisis erupted in 2009, pundits divided the region into two parts: a northern bloc of creditor countries supposedly characterised by economic efficiency, fiscal rigour and respect for the law; and a southern bloc of debtor states supposedly distinguished by economic weakness, profligate public finances and artful rule-bending.

Geographically and culturally speaking, Finland is as northern as they come. Even more than Germany, Finland insisted on tough conditions for the European component of Greece’s EU-International Monetary Fund financial rescue. Meanwhile, its own economy was sliding into trouble. Now output is shrinking, business confidence is low and – horror of horrors – public debt is going up.

Alexander Stubb, prime minister, suggested in August that Finland, like Japan in the 1990s, was in the middle of a “lost decade”. When Finland lost its triple-A credit rating from Standard & Poor’s in October, he told Finns that their “golden era” – lasting from 2000 to 2008 – was over and that they needed “to build a new Finland”.

Some causes of Finland’s difficulties are easy to identify. One is the decline of Nokia, the mobile phone company that contributed about a quarter of Finland’s economic growth between 1998 and 2007. Another is the slump in Finland’s pulp and paper industry. Finland’s manufacturing sector lost 76,000 jobs in the six years up to 2012 – a big number for a nation of only 5.4m.

A third factor is the accelerating economic weakness of Russia, driven by falling oil prices and symbolised by its tumbling rouble. Russia is Finland’s largest trading partner, but Finland has signed up to EU sanctions imposed on Moscow over its actions in Ukraine. According to Finland’s central bank, a 25 per cent fall in Russian imports amounts to a 0.9 percentage point drop in Finnish economic growth.

But there are other factors at play. Finland’s image as a lean, mean economy, innovative and internationally competitive, is deceptive. Its public expenditure is one of the world’s highest – equal in 2013 to 57.8 per cent of gross domestic product, according to Eurostat, the EU statistical agency. In the private sector, companies that were a roaring success a few years ago – such as Rovio Entertainment, maker of the Angry Birds mobile phone game – have found it hard to fend off competition and have started to lay off staff.

It all points to electoral defeat for Mr Stubb’s centre-right National Coalition party. In contrast to 2011, however, The Finns are struggling to exploit the government’s unpopularity. A November 21 opinion poll placed the party fourth with 16.2 per cent of the vote, well behind the opposition liberal Centre party, one of Finland’s traditional parties, on 24.5 per cent.

Unlike in Greece, Spain and even France, Finland’s mainstream politicians seem to be holding back the populist tide. This is no small achievement. It offers hope that, once the April 2015 election is out of the way, Finland will lay the groundwork for a new “golden era”, making sure that it keeps its well-deserved reputation for creativity and cool-headed competence.

Finland raises asylum seeker forecast to 50,000

Quote:
HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland's government on Friday raised its estimate for the number of asylum-seekers in the country this year to about 50,000 from its previous estimate of 30,000, following an influx in September.

The figure compares with just 3,600 asylum seekers last year. The interior ministry said in its statement that the new forecast, compared to Finland's total population of just 5.5 million, is similar to the

asylum-seeker numbers of Germany or Sweden.

Thousands of refugees, most of them from Iraq, have in recent weeks come through Sweden, crossing a northern land border in Tornio, near the Arctic circle.

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finland on Wednesday lowered its estimate for the number of asylum seekers expected to arrive in the country this year to 30-35,000 from its previous estimate of 50,000.

The Interior Ministry said the decrease was due to its measures to control immigration, such as opening a registration centre in northern Finland for those crossing over from Sweden.

So far this year, 22,000 asylum seekers have arrived in Finland, mostly from Iraq, up from 3,600 people in 2014.

The Finnish government last month suspended decision-making on asylum claims by Iraqis and Somalis, saying it might tighten guidelines for granting people asylum after reassessing the security situation in both countries.

Published on Aug 10, 2016FINLAND: Michel Paulat, a former Official at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs who now resides in Turku, Southwest Finland, spoke harsh words at an Anti-Islamization rally in Helsinki on the 5th of August. During the event counter-demonstrators tried their best to disrupt the speech, but seemingly without success. Paulat claimed that Muslims are "cruel, arrogant and stupid", have created nothing and don't respect their women. They demand their culture to be imposed upon Western civilization, but murder and disrespect Christians. According to him, refugees are pathetic cowards who refuse to fight for their country and instead leave behind their families in war torn areas. His supporters went wild when he said that "you should not even exist and you should be banned from any civilized society" and "one day we will kick you out, all of you and the young ones".

Especially to you migrants and Muslims. I know you, I am not like most of the Finnish.

I lived in your country for ten years and I’ve seen how cruel, arrogant and stupid you are.

You have not created anything.

You have not done nothing.

You have absolutely done nothing.

You’re just a sick who don’t respect your women.

You force them to be your slaves.

You do not respect other religions, you do not respect the Christian religion. I’ve seen it disappear for ten years.

I have seen you murdering Christians.

And if you don’t like [that] the truth, you are supposed to be tolerant according to your remarks but your not tolerant.

Have you seen a church in Saudi Arabia?

Have you see a Christian in Saudi Arabia who can have his his faith?

You want us to celebrate your holidays?

Do you celebrate Christmas?

Do you celebrate Easter?

You are absolutely out of this world. You should not even exist.

And you should be banned from any civilized society.

But do be spared one day we will kick you out.

All of you and [the] young ones.

You left – you left your country to collapse.

You did not even fight, you have no guts.

You did not stay to fight for your country, for your people, for your family, for your children, you just run away.

But – be assured – be assured, one day. Most of Europe will rise against you.

You tried before to conquer with weapons by war.

But we will defeat you because you are not worth it.

I ask one thing, Finnish people, rise up! Do not let the Islamification grow. Just – just stand up, be men, you have proved it before and [will] prove it again!

Now: Fight for your freedom. Join us, raise your hand, and suomi ensin!

National Police Board to examine outlawing neo-Nazi groups

Police Commissioner Seppo Kolehmainen told Yle that he will speak with the office of the prosecutor general about whether now is the right time to seriously consider outright banning neo-Nazi groups like the Finnish Resistance Movement (FRM).

If implemented, a ban on extreme right wing groups would reportedly not only affect registered groups, if such associations carry out illegal acts.

Last week a man died of injuries he suffered after allegedly being kicked in the chest by an FRM founding member at a demonstration in Helsinki a week earlier.

The incident resulted in many people across Finland calling for authoritative action against such groups.

The suspect in the assault was ordered to be held in remand by a Helsinki District Court on Wednesday, and faces charges of involuntary manslaughter.

"We are facing a new situation," Kolehmainen said Wednesday. "There hasn't been something like this in our court system in decades."

Deputy Prosecutor Raija Toiviainen said she is looking forward to what the National Police Board has to say on the matter.
