POLITICAL STRIKE: Thursday ALL trains in the whole of Norway, and all trams and subways in Oslo, will stand still for two minutes as a result of a political strike organized by the Norwegian Locomotive Union and the Oslo Tram Workers Union in protest of the Israeli invasion of Gaza.
A large selection of Norwegian trade unions and organizations has endorsed a new campaign for the withdrawal of all State investments in Israel. The call is endorsed by so far 6 of the largest national trade unions.
The Union of Trade and Office Workers calls on all members to ask their employers to remove Israeli produtcts from stores. The union is the by far largest union of workers in all types of private and public stores in Norway.
The confederation of Norwegian Trade Unions (LO), with apr. 1/5 of the whole Norwegian population as members, condemns the Israeli bombing and invasion in Gaza and calls for demonstrations.
The Norwegian Church has protested Israels invasion of Gaza and was, according to media, “called to the carpet” by the Israeli embassador.
We have started a 24 hour vigil in Oslo for the people in Gaza. We are selling candels which people can place on a mount. We also have a metal fence with ribbons for each of the dead in Gaza. A red one for the adults and a pink one for the children. The death toll is 770 i Gaza and rising. The carnage and destruction is horrific.
