How the eurosceptic Finns Party is changing the national agenda.
- Targeting people as outsiders is part of the new tribal nationalist agenda to protect majorities against minorities.
- Data, politics, NGOs, racism, Matteo Salvini. What’s going on in Italy with migrants and refugees.
- The popular initiative ‚Against the Construction of Minarets’ stands in opposition to basic human rights and endangers the religious peace. What I found most outrageous in the campaign was the image on the poster where, next to minaret towers, a burqa-clad person was shown. That was the point: hyping up fears by using exactly what the initiative set out to prohibit. The initiative was not against minarets - it directed itself against an entire religion. This is not worthy of a governing party. It was an embarrassing situation which once more went to prove how many of our fellow citizens are prone to being manipulated by a few agitators and to help them get the vote.
