Several hundreds of people on Saturday evening gathered in the Helsinki city centre protesting against the vaccination of children and opposing introduction of COVID passport.

About 1,300 people took part in the demonstration against coronavirus vaccinations in the downtown of Helsinki and the demonstration was held peacefully, said Helsinki Police in a twitter post in Finnish.

The protesters gathered in front of the outside Parliament buildings and marched toward the Esplanade Park where the rally was ended at about 6.30pm.

Participants at the rally demanded end to the vaccination of children, abolition of other some other measures including coronavirus testing and introduction of a COVID passport.
