Oulu City, 30.10.2015

Around 50-70 Immigrants left their emergency housing unit to local police station and protested about conditions they have to withstand. Main problems seemed to be the food they get and the fact that they are supposed to clean their own rooms for themselves.

«We’ve served normal food. The most common menu is rice with several different sauces. Basically we serve refugees the same food as we serve to city’s other facilities like schools and daycares» Says emergency housing vice director Janne Salmivaara.

Salmivaara cannot say precisely why the food has arised such dissatisfaction among refugees.

«It’s difficult to comment such reaction, but apparently some don’t like the taste of our food» Says Salmivaara.
