An anti-immigration demonstration takes place in Tallinn on Wednesday.

According to the organizers, their aim is to convey the message that "Estonia's borders must be defended."

Demonstrators demand that Estonia retains the right to decide over matters of national importance, such as immigration.

The demonstration started at 11:00 in front of the German Embassy in Tallinn and will move between different locations, including Toompea Hill and the Town Hall Square.

A human chain will be formed around Toompea Castle, the seat of the Estonian Parliament, between 12:00 and 13:00.

Organizers hope that the strongest among them will stay out thoughout the night.

The rally is organized by the European National Front, in cooperation with the Conservative People's Party (EKRE), the People's Party of Unity (RÜE), and several Facebook groups.
