The Finns Party Youth - Independent Thinking

The Finns Party Youth is a Finnish conservative, nationalist and populist political youth organisation. The Chairman of The Finns Party Youth is Samuli Voutila (samuli.voutila[at]ps-nuoret.fi) from Kuopio and Secretary General is Tony Leppäkoski (sihteeri[at]ps-nuoret.fi) from Helsinki.

For The Finns Party Youth conservatism and nationalism are above all the defence of western democratic ideals, respect for unique Finnish national identity and efforts to reform Nordic welfare state. The Finns Party Youth sees populism as a political philosophy that is for the people, by the people, against interests of the elite, corruption and overt bureaucracy. Electioneering on multiculturalism at the expense of Finnish and western culture appears to us short-sighted.

The Finns Party Youth supports free and functioning market economy and companies which create wealth and well-being for the common man and woman. Material goods are not, however, ends in themselves, rather just a means to promote and value humanity and humaneness. On the European level The Finns Party Youth supports independent and sovereign nation-states and is against European federalism. The Finns Party Youth is a member of European Young Conservatives.
