Trial for disbanding the Pohjoismainen vastarintaliike (PVL), Nordic resistance movement starts today

Today starts the trial for disbanding the Pohjoismainen vastarintaliike (PVL), Nordic resistance movement.

Finland is bound by the UN Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (1965) which condemns all propaganda based on ideas or theories of superiority of one race or group of persons of one color or ethnic origin, or which attempt to justify or promote racial hatred and discrimination in any form.

The Nordic resistance movement is by their own words a movement which is based on the world view of National Socialism. The movement publishes material as print as well as in digital form. The material is by its character discriminating and promoting racial hatred.

Based on the human rights conventions that bind Finland the Non-Discrimination Ombudsman finds that the National resistance movement does not enjoy the freedom of speech nor the freedom of assembly and freedom of association.
