Break the Silence

It was all triggered by the murder of 28-year-old Finnish man, Jimi Karttunen, on September 10. While out in Helsinki, Karttunen approached a Neo-Nazi Finnish Resistance Movement demonstration. Several days after the initial attack, Karttunen died in hospital from a brain hemorrhage. The news of the tragedy travelled fast. Outside of Helsinki Central Station, a small vigil sprang out of the growing dialogue. Flickering candles illuminated bright yellow chalk that read ‘Stop the Hate’. Soon, there was an event on Facebook for an anti-racist protest.
