Tallinn Pride route approved

Jul 31, 2007
By TBT staff and wire reports

TALLINN - The Estonian North Police Prefecture has approved the route for this year's the Tallinn Pride event, due to take place August 11.

Tuuli Harson, spokeswoman of the Tallinn North Police Prefecture said the organizers of the event had submitted a slightly revised route for the procession and the police approved it July 31.

"After the Tallinn municipal authorities registered the public meeting… the organizers still face a [consultation] with representatives of the police and security companies in order to discuss public order during the procession," Harson told the Baltic News Service.

Lisette Kampus, the main organizer of Tallinn Pride, told The Baltic Times: "We are pleased and relieved. Obviously the safety of participants and everybody else in Tallinn is issue number one for us. We are trying to do everything we possibly can.

"Thr route is not very different to the one we originally proposed, but it takes the police concerns into account."

Kampus also confirmed to TBT that even though the number of participants is expected to remain similar to previous years at around 400, the organizers will be recruiting more security marshalls than ever before "because the risk has been assessed as higher." She also said that the security costs faced by the organizers will be at least 30,000 kroons (1,900 euros).
