Bike Rally for Russian political prisoners 7th of September 2013, Helsinki, Finland

This video is filmed at Bike rally for Russian political prisoners arranged in Helsinki Finland on 7th September. Many of the by-passers cheered when the bike rally passed by. The demonstrators ringed their bells, chanted and played drums. The route started from Kolmen sepän patsas and ended in the Russian embassy in Tehtaankatu, where the demonstrators cycled around the embassy and afterwards listened few speeches of the situation of the political prisoners in Russia. Mainly the demonstration rally went well and with good ambience. Sadly when rally was ending (and when the video camera stopped recording) the police suddenly attacked and arrested six demonstrators.
