Over a hundred Finnish nationalists gathered in the city of Turku, Finland on the 22nd August for the fourth consecutive time to remember the victims of Finland’s first ever Islamist terror attack that left two woman dead and 8 others wounded. The Moroccan terrorist came to Finland as an asylum seeker and had already spent some time in Finland prior to the attack. He was enrolled in a Finnish elementary school in order to learn the Finnish language, and despite constant reports from even other asylum seekers about his abhorrent behavior, the Finnish authorities did not act.
On the 18th August 2017, the Moroccan terrorist, named Abderrahman Bouanane, launched a stabbing spree in the Turku centrum. According to his own statements, he sought specifically Finns for his victims, considering the Finnish people to be “infidels”. However, not all of the victims were Finns. Some of the victims were other Europeans, and one of the victims of the frenzy was an Arab woman.

This time, Sascha is joined by Jeff Winston, who is a writer, musician, filmmaker and director of the White Art Collective from the United States, and Hiraeth, a singer-songwriter also from the United States. The word Hiraeth is originally a Welsh word meaning "yearning for a home one cannot return to/a home that may never have existed/the nostalgia, the longing, the mourning for lost places of the past." Hiraeth also serves as a spokesperson for the White Art Collective.
