London, UK. 12th December, 2017. Amnesty International activists stand on a placard stating 'Trans Act Finland' during a protest outside the Finnish embassy to call for revision of Finland’s ‘pre-historic’ trans sterilisation laws and in solidarity with Sakris Kupila, a 21-year-old Finnish human rights activist defending transgender rights and campaigning to change his country’s laws. Finland’s ‘Trans Act’ violates the human rights of transgender people by requiring enforced sterilisation, medical treatment and extensive mental disorder diagnosis before they can legally change their gender. The UN Human Rights Council has requested that these requirements be abolished.
