Finland: Woman Tries to Stop Plane to Prevent Migrant’s Deportation, Gets Swiftly Arrested
From Information Liberation:
Finnish Greens party legal officer Aino Pennanen tried to copy Swedish activist Elin Ersson’s recent stunt and stop a plane from departing to prevent a migrant’s deportation on Tuesday but she received no support from other passengers and instead got swiftly arrested.
On Tuesday police at Helsinki Airport removed Aino Pennanen, the legal officer of Finland’s Greens party, from a plane for refusing to be seated. Pennanen said she was protesting the deportation of a fellow passenger.
Police cited Pennanen for causing an aviation misdemeanour but she is not suspected of having committed a crime.
Pennanen broadcast live video of her protest on Facebook as it unfolded on Tuesday. The plane’s departure was delayed by about ten minutes.
She thought she was going to achieve social media fame and be the next Elin Ersson, instead she was arrested immediately and managed to delay the plane for only ten minutes.
