SIAN Demonstration Completely Drowned Out
By a commentator for Tjen Folket Media.
The fascist organization Stopp islamiseringen av Norge (SIAN) [“Stop the Islamization of Norway’] met overwhelming resistance when they visited the Østfold city of Moss on Saturday.
Members from the fascist organization were on a tour and had arranged demonstrations in different Norwegian cities, primarily in Østlandet. They wished to demonstrate with slogans and flyers, but the propaganda attempt turned into a fiasco for the the fascists and a victory for local antifascists.
Hundreds of anti-racists showed up to demonstrate against roughly ten fascists. Despite the fact that the demonstration was fenced off and protected by police, the fascists were visibly disturbed by the counter-demonstrators. With the aid of slogans like “No racists in our streets”, “The struggle continues – Nazism will be smashed”, and “No support to Breivik’s friends”, the racists were completely overwhelmed.
That the demonstrators were not welcome was underscored by the fact that the counter-demonstrators without interruption were able to drown out the demonstration that lasted only two hours. In summary, first and foremost, there was a good consolidation of local antifascists around the line of sabotaging the fascists’ demonstration with active resistance. And of course, it can be concluded that SIAN is not welcome in Moss.
