Torchlite parade march for all the deceased, wounded and the bereaved after 22th of july 2011 in Norway.

We have to stand together and show the affected, both victims and the bereaved, that we care. Please join our demonstration in every town and city in Norway on Monday

Everybody who wishes can join in several cities in Norway, they all start at monday 25th of july 18.00.

Here’s some quotes from Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s speech at the memoral service:

QuoteToday it is time for sorrow. We shall allow ourselves to stop, and honour the dead. Mourn for those who are no more. 92 human lives are lost. Several are still missing. Each and everyone of those is a tragedy. Together, they make a national tragedy.

Amid the tragedy I am proud to live in a country that has managed to stand firm. I am impressed over how much dignity, care and strength we have. We are a small country, but we are a proud people. We are still shaken, but we will never give up our values. Our answer is more democracy and openness, never naivety.

Cites a girl from the AUF camp (the youth Labour party): “If one man can show so much hatred, imagine how much love we can all show together.

Hope to see thousands of lights tomorrow.
