Anti-immigrant ‘Soldiers of Odin’ raise concern in Finland
Wearing black jackets adorned with a symbol of a Viking and the Finnish flag, the “Soldiers of Odin” have surfaced as self-proclaimed patriots patrolling the streets to protect native Finns from immigrants, worrying the government and police.
Soldiers Of Odin USA Division is a direct branch of S.O.O. Finland.
Soldiers Of Odin USA is a conservative organization having members from all walks of life with the same goal; protecting our communities, homes, families, and overall our country.This goal is accomplished with community based services and neighborhood patrols, letting the public know they are not alone.
We’ve been brought together because of the lack of concern and action of the higher authorities in our country; by allowing illegal aliens to into the country, giving them the ability to vote and drive, and accepting refugees into the country who refuse to respect and adapt to the laws of our country. All of this takes place while we have citizens living on the streets and in poverty, especially our veterans; the men and women who fought for us to have the freedoms we have.
We believe in in protecting the streets with observe and report style patrols, and if needed will defend individuals in need. We will work with local authorities, being their eyes and ears for the areas they cannot see or hear, making sure our neighborhoods and their citizens feel safe. We come together to host family friendly events and give back to the community; like donating to homeless shelters and searching for ways to help our veterans.
David MacKinnon has been a busy man since Greater Sudbury Police Chief Paul Pedersen apologized last week for taking a photo with MacKinnon’s group.
The group, the Soldiers of Odin, started out as a far-right extremist group in Finland two years ago, but since splitting with the main group in May, chapters in Canada have been trying to show they’re different.
“We’re just trying to prove that we’re not racist,” he said. “I find what’s hurting us is the fact the police chief made that statement apologizing and that he shouldn’t have taken the picture.”
The Sudbury SOO chapter has picked up about 10,000 dirty needles on its patrols, and volunteered for causes like the soup kitchen and organ donation.
‘Soldiers of Allah’ to counter Soldiers of Odin in Norway
People with known ties to the Oslo Islamist scene claim to have created the group ‘Soldiers of Allah’ (Jundullaah) to counter the controversial Soldiers of Odin group now patrolling Norwegian streets.

JDL partners with Soldiers of Odin on ‘ad hoc’ basis
The images of Soldiers of Odin (SOO) that have made the news and been circulated across the Internet are far from flattering. They purport to show members of the club – which has been labeled racist, extremist and Islamophobic – engaged in violence with anti-racist protesters.
Meir Weinstein has seen the images too. The organization that he heads, the Jewish Defence League (JDL), was present at the event April 1 at Nathan Phillips Square, in front of Toronto City Hall, jointly providing “security” with SOO, when SOO clashed briefly with the self-styled anti-racist protesters.
Weinstein believes the Soldiers of Odin have gotten a bad rap.
Both groups had been asked to provide security for Sandra Solomon, a Muslim apostate who has been a vocal critic of Motion M-103, the private member’s motion that called on parliamentarians to condemn Islamophobia and other forms of racism.
