Loldiers of Odin versus Soldiers of Odin
The right-wing group Soldiers of Odin started their anti-immigrants patrols in the streets of Tampere several months ago, supported by the nationalist Finns Party. They are not the only one in Finland to perform such patrols that are only beginning to worry representatives of the government.
To fight against this intolerance patrols, a troupe of clowns, dressed in typically colorful garb and calling themselves the Loldiers of Odin decided to set up a counter-patrol following the way taken by the right-wing group and performing acrobatings, songs and even an impersonation of “Odin, defender of the streets”.
An attempt to “make the streets both safer and hilarious-er for all people”, to contest the use of such patrols and to raise awareness for migrants and refugees situation. The clowns, however, didn’t encounter the same comprehension than the one they were aping as some were arrested by authorities.
