Today there was a Pride Parade in Helsinki (which I didn't directly participate this time, although I helped out as a volunteer), and during the parade the participants were attacked with pepper gas and smoke bombs. Apparently the people responsible were caught trying to hide the spray, but FUCKING HELL. A Finnish article here, and of course the first comment belongs to a whiner who feels it's awful that they had to sit in a streetcar decorated by rainbow flaqs.

Oh, that's terrible. I'm so sorry to hear about that. I'm glad at least they were caught.

I always associate horrible acts like that with the U.S., but of course really I know better.

From what I've been reading about other Prides it seems like violence has been a "theme" all year, which is very sad. I'm glad the guilty party was caught though.
