NO SLEEP FOR CLINTON ANTI-SUMMIT DEMONSTRATION (PART 2) IN HELSINKI

At night between 20. and 21.3. at about 1.30 twenty anarchist activists held "wake-up-demo" in front of 'Hotel Intercontinental, which was reserved for Clinton and American delegation . Clinton and delegation were woke up with noise from horns and whistles and shouts "Free Leonard Peltier!" Free Mumia Abu-Jamal" "Human Rights now!". After five minutes (and after half of the building had turned lights back on, including presidential suite) police stopped demonstration. After retreat with their banners and placards four activists decided to continue and made new wake-up about 2.45 which continued succesfully about 10-15 minutes until police violently stopped it again and arrested activists (which were released next day). Demonstration was dedicated to all victims of death penalty both in US and Russia, all political prisoners and also to all those jailed refusing military service in Russia. Media told that Clinton "slept badly because of the noise" and some also mentioned the demonstration, but all seemed to suppress the connection and main themes of demonstration, Mumia Abu-Jamal and Leonard Peltier weren't mentioned. If the conscience of world leaders doesn't spoil their nights , somebody has to do it !
