The demonstration was organised in support of the Christian Democrat politician by Sara Kulifai, a foreign affairs editor at the weekly Hetek. She said Rasanen had been subjected to a trial and accused of incitement after criticising the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland’s official participation in LGBT Pride celebration events.

Rasanen was found not guilty by a district court in March this year but the Finnish prosecutor’s office has submitted an appeal.
