Estonian nationalists protest EU refugee quotas

Some 150 protesters from Estonia’s nationalist-conservative EKRE party have demonstrated outside a summit of EU leaders in Tallinn against the EU’s immigration policies and its refugee quota system.
They held banners in German and English urging the end to “multikulti”, short for multi-cultural Europe, a reference often used in Estonia to describe Germany’s society.
“We do not accept (EU refugee) quotas,” EKRE chairman Martin Helme told The Associated Press. “Germany, Merkel and Macron and Juncker cannot tell us who should be allowed to Estonia and who not.”
“I don’t think there should any immigration from the Islamic countries” to Europe, he said.
So far only some 80-100 refugees have been placed into Estonia under the EU’s refugee quota.
Beyond the noise, sometimes drowning out the statements from arriving leaders, no significant incidents were reported.
