Finland is two weeks away from election day and “The True Finns”, the country’s equivalent of SD (Sverigedemokraterna, Sweden Democrats), have released a longer election film that has been very successful. The video was watched over a quarter of a million times within its first week, which is a lot for Finland’s population size.
Now, however, the international cinema chain AMC has stopped showing the election film of the immigration-critical party “The True Finns” in Finland, which Fria Tider was the first to report on.
According to “Finnkino”, which is owned by AMC, the decision to stop the showing is because they “stand up for tolerance, freedom of speech and democracy, and do not accept racism or discrimination,” according to their Twitter.
This censorship now faces tough criticism, as it is happening when there are only two weeks until the election, where support for “The True Finns” also seems to be increasing.

It (the film) is about how the Finns have finally had enough of the corrupt establishment and are hitting back at the rulers. The film also highlights problems with immigration and the insecurity for women that has arisen in its wake.
The problems created by the establishment mean that the Finnish people’s “energy” creates a monster that forces the rulers to change.
At the end of the film, however, the party leader Jussi Halla-aho notes that of course there is no angry monster:
“As you know, there is no angry monster that will come and save anyone. The old parties will not change their direction. If you want change, you have to vote for change,” he concludes at the end of the movie.
