From Norway – in solidarity
Gaza demonstrations November 17th

The Palestine Committee of Norway arranged several big and small demonstrations in support for our friends in Palestine, and especially the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip, Saturday November 17th. In the main cities, Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Tromsø, Lillehammer, Hamar, Narvik, but also in smaller towns, people met to condemn the attacks, the bombing, the killings of civilians, but also to protest against the Israeli occupation.

The slogans for the day were:
Stop Israelis terror on Gaza
End the blockade

Immediately, we at Stop the Wall acted in solidarity with the victims, their family, and the nation of Norway by sending the following letter. Each day since the attack we have learned more details about the motivations of this person. It is now known that he was motivated by extreme hate, racism, and Islamaphobia, while his victims were political activists who believed in justice.

Political parties in Norway and India have taken the first steps in moving towards the isolation of Apartheid Israel. Over the last month, left-wing parties in Oslo and New Delhi have passed similar resolutions condemning the Apartheid Wall, affirming Palestinian rights and calling for sanctions and arms embargos on Israel.
