Oikeutta Eläimille is also a real-life Finnish animal activist organization. According to their official web page at http://www.oikeuttaelaimille.net/, the group was formed in 1995, has nearly 30 local branches and only supports legal methods in fighting for animal rights. Note: I said "according to their home page".

There were numerous members of this group in my class at lukio. Their most visible of their projects were terrorizing old ladies with fur coats, holding demonstrations against McDonald's and taking over a vacant house. The former two acts were probably not related to Oikeutta Eläimille, though.
