The Nazist Finnish Resistance Movement (Suomen Vastarintaliike, SVL) has killed a passerby during their street event on the 9th of September, near Helsinki Railway Station.

According to still unconfirmed information the Nazist Finnish Resistance Movement (Suomen Vastarintaliike, SVL) killed a passerby during their street event on the 9th of September, near Helsinki Railway Station. Already the same day, SVL published on their website a picture and a video featuring the person they assaulted, along with a text glorifying violence. According to the victim’s family, the young man that SVL assaulted died in hospital last night, September 16th at 10 PM, from the serious injuries he received. Anti-fascist network Varis takes part in the grief of his family and friends.

The Helsingin uutiset news media writes that the Police of Helsinki “confirms that a case of assault was registered at the Station square on Saturday 10th of September, and that a death is connected to it”. Although a crime report and witness accounts were delivered already the day following the assault which led to the fatality, police does not yet comment on whether there was a cause-effect connection. The victim’s father, interviewed by yellow paper Ilta-Sanomat, says that “his son was knocked to the ground with the result that he hit his head on the pavement and lost consciousness. He was taken to Töölö hospital. On Thursday he was sent home with doctor’s permission. He didn’t remember anything about the event, but his friends told me. Yesterday on Friday, he had a brain hemorrhage at home. He barely had time to call the emergency number before he lost consciousness. He died there [in hospital] at 10 PM. I managed to visit him in the hospital, he was in respirator”.

According to the father, the victim had walked by the SVL’s street event, and told the Nazis what he thought about their far-right politics, for which he was beaten up with fateful consequences. In SVL’s own version, the bypasser had recognized the organization’s flag and started “behaving aggressively”. SVL published on their website a picture where the victim of the violence lies on the ground next to a splatter of blood, and commented on it as “a swift restoration of discipline” to a bypasser of different political opinion. SVL has also in the past assaulted random passers-by during their street events, for example in Myyrmäki, Vantaa (suburb of Helsinki), and in Jyväskylä. SVL uses this as a way to build an image of themselves as a violent paramilitary group, in order to attract violent young men to join in their activities.

After the violent assault SVL actively advertised the happenings online, e.g. in Twitter. For example, SVL member Eppu Torniainen tweeted September 11th, “Feel like spitting and issuing violent threats? Do it somewhere else”, to which member Juhani Keränen replied: “@JesseTorniainen seems that guy was caught by surprise, when the other side didn’t have patience for his childish noise”. The news was also published by antisemitic media Magneettimedia, which SVL has control over, as well as racist “news” site “MV-lehti”, with the headline “Video: hothead opposing ‘racism’ makes fool of themselves in Helsinki”. In the article itself, the violent assault was described as “disciplining action”. SVL’s tweets were retweeted mainly by the movement’s finnish, swedish, and norwegian members, along with a few other far-righters. In addition, SVL’s internet radio “Studio 204” spread info about the assault. The numbers in the program’s name refer to Adolf Hitler’s birthday, 20.4.1889.
