The event drew several dozens of people. A lot of people waved slogans such as "We should be friends with our neighbors, not fight with them," "Finland’s foreign policy is a good example for us," "Estonia is not a colony of the United States" and "Stop NATO."
The activists marched from Baltic Station, the main railway station in Tallinn, toward the parliament building and staged a protest there. According to the police, the event went smoothly.
In July, during a NATO summit in Warsaw, the alliance decided to strengthen its military presence in Eastern Europe on a rotational basis with four battalions in Poland and in the Baltic nations in a bid to protect countries from alleged Russian aggression.
Russia has repeatedly warned that amassing troops and weapons on its borders is a provocative act that can destabilize the region and the global security environment.
