Dear Monica Mæland,
On Wednesday 21 September 2020, more than a hundred citizens demonstrated outside the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and at the intersection of Frederiks gate-Karl Johans gate against the Norwegian state's collection of oil and gas. The demonstrators did not content themselves with protesting, they used civil disobedience and blocked the entrance to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and they sat down and obstructed traffic at the intersection at the bottom of the Castle. They wanted to make it clear that the Norwegian state's oil and gas recovery is doing irreparable damage to nature – our common living environment. They protested on behalf of future generations, on behalf of you and my children and grandchildren. And they demonstrated on behalf of the vulnerable nature.
Our fellow citizens who demonstrated were peaceful, nicely dressed, dedicated non-violent people, and they behaved properly and politely towards passers-by and towards the police.
