Organizing a Pride celebration – Had a close friend who died

SARPSBORG (Dagbladet): Light rain on the streets of Sarpsborg on Monday evening. Somewhere between 30 and 50 people had traveled to Sankt Marie Plass. All with rainbow flags and flowers. They were silent and hugged each other.

Everyone was clearly affected after the shooting episode in Oslo on Friday night, in which Zaniar Matapour shot and killed Kåre Hesvik (60) and Jon Erik Isachsen (54). In addition, a number of other people were injured in the incident which took place outside Per nightclub on the corner and a London pub.

The last place is a popular night spot for the whole odd neighborhood.

In the same way as in Oslo, they voted against the recommendation of the Oslo police and PST to postpone the event.

The eastern police district deems it safe to arrange for tagging.

– I understand a little about that. There should be a good enough opportunity to mobilize security from such an event.

based on NRK Supposedly one of the reasons for the cancellation of Pride was because the police had no idea about some people in certain neighborhoods.

– Why did you choose to go against the recommendation not to appear?

– I am afraid, not for my part, but for the people sitting at home and struggling.
