Tallinn poised for two public meetings on Sunday ({{commentsTotal}})

Riigikogu hoone.

On Sunday thousands are expected to protest the planned fuel excise duty hikes outside of the Parliament building while just a few hundred meters down hill, a public meeting will be held to remember the anniversary of the Bronze Night riots in 2007.

“Police have registered the events on Sunday and there is no reason to worry about the different meetings. Authorities have met the organizers of the events and cooperation has been good,” Urmas Tuisk of the police, told ERR.

Police said the event in Toompea on Sunday noon, which is expected to draw 3,000 people, is well organized and private security firms will be brought in to guarantee participant safety.

Later that day the Tõnismäe event has been registered as a public meeting and candles will be laid where the Bronze Soldier statue used to stand. The event is organized by Sergei Tšaulin, who was a member of the Night Watch group during the 2007 events.
