#Vaasainitiative Let’s make Vaasankatu streets worthy of their name

Dear residents of Vaasa and Vaasa-minded people

We have noted with concern that the name of our city appears in Finland – and even out in the world – in most un-Vaasalike contexts. It is all about the Vaasankatu streets that, in spite of their name, hardly resemble our beloved Vaasa. For example, the rents in the Vaasankatu street in Helsinki have rocketed far above the good base level in Vaasa.

It is time to act now, since the reputation of the whole Vaasa region as the centre of easy living is at stake. All residents of Vaasa and other Vaasa-minded people, sign this initiative in order to demand that cities make their Vaasankatu streets Vaasa-worthy from start to finish.

We prompt the cities to change the name of the street, if not even a sea view can be arranged within a reasonable time after the demands have been made.

Let’s make the Vaasankatu streets worthy of their name with the help of this manifesto. Sign the initiative now!

PS. Because we are sure that this, too, will go as smoothly as planned, we are going to celebrate the milestone of 2.000 signers in Vaasa market square with free Mac and dill for everyone.

Greetings from Vaasa,
