Pietarsaari/Jakobstad: Kulturväxternas Vänner (jeppisrescueteam(at)

Report (from old GMM site): This year our march didn't get as much coverage from the media as last year. And for some strange reason there were less people showing up this time, even though the march was announced months in advance and we had flyers put up around town. We were around 30 people marching and most of us carried signs. This year we made a stop at the town center and handed out leaflets with facts about cannabis. Once again the authorities were ok about it all, and only took their mandatory pictures of us.

Pietarsaari/Jakobstad: Kulturväxternas Vänner (jeppisrescueteam(at)

This was the first protest march in Pietarsaari for about 20 years and we got quite a lot of attention from the media. Mostly because it was our first GMMarch here, but also because Pietarsaari is a much smaller place than the other participating cities in Finland. We had about 40 people marching, some playing instruments and others carrying signs. In relation to the population it could be considered the biggest march in Finland. It was a happy gathering and the police didn't interfere much at all (except for taking photographs of us). Unfortunately the streets were rather empty that day so there weren't many people to talk to and inform about our cause.
