8  January      Ireland – Dublin

9  January      Romania - Bucharest, Timisoara, Constanta, Cluj

Even if only some of these demonstrations take place, it should be considered very good. We must keep our eyes open and hope for reports, preferably in foreign media.

Here in Norway there was a demonstration in Oslo on Tuesday 5 January, with about 40-50 people (very good in this cold weather!).

5:50 p.m.

The national broadcasting nrk had a coverage in the radio program "Her og Nå" (Here and now) which runs between 5 and 6 pm. The part of the program dealing with Norwegian Barnevernet was about 9 minutes long. The first part spoke of the demonstrations and interviewed a CPS representative from Naustdal, the municipality where five children have been taken from the family Bodnariu (The five children of a Rumanian-Norwegian family taken by Barnevernet), the second part was an interview with the Norwegian ambassador in Lithuania, who told the listeners about the upset over Norwegian CPS in Lithuania for months.

The program stated that there have been invitations to demonstrations in 5 countries today, in London, Washington DC, Barcelona, Dublin og Copenhagen.
    The CPS say they do not believe the foreigners know how the Norwegian statute regulating child protection works, they will (again) send out information in English, and 'try to explain' the Norwegian system. The ambassador in Lithuania complains (again) that the foreigners do not want to listen to this "information". An embassy secretary in Washington thinks that incorrect information is circulating.
    The CPS locally in Naustdal have received heaps of postcards etc, and the administrative head of the municipal administration finds the situation so unpleasant that he will have the police monitor websites here in Norway which he thinks spread smear-campaigns on the edge of illegality.

In connection with the demonstrations yesterday 8 January 2016:

The demonstrations have been a great success so far. However, the numbers below have been taken largely from the Facebook page of the support group and they are probably too high. The following numbers of supporters at the demonstrations:

Washington:    700+ in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Washington DC, USA
Protest in Washington
Video

London:    1200 in front of the Norwegian Embassy in London, England
Protest in London
Video
Video

Barcelona:    150+ in front of the Norwegian Consulate in Barcelona, Spain

Copenhagen:    30+ in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark

Dublin:    600 in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Dublin, Ireland

Here we have "a toddler" Cipri Tom who has placed an appeal on the facebook page of FrP (the Progress Party, which has the cabinet minister whose department is boss of the CPS!):
Please help STOP Bernevernet Norway kidnap children from their parents!
Fremskrittspartiet FrP, 8 January 2016

*

Regjeringa følgjer demonstrasjonane tett (The government monitors the demonstrations closely)
Fleire demonstrasjonar er varsla i dag. Regjeringa har tett kontakt med rumenske myndigheiter i samband med dei store demonstrasjonane mot ei norsk barnevernssak. (More demonstrations are scheduled for today. The government has close contact with Romanian authorities in connection with the large demonstrations against a Norwegian CPS case.)

(PROTEST IN DUBLIN: According to the arranging committee, about 600 people gathered outside the Norwegian Embassy in demonstration against the CPS.

! !   Ah, indeed, photo taken from the support group – the national Norwegian broadcasting co has stopped using only state-subservient sources?

The results are beginning to come in. Most numbers are by reports from the support group.

Massedemonstrasjoner mot norsk barnevern i 19 land (Mass demonstrations against Norwegian CPS in 19 countries)
Flere tusen mennesker demonstrerte mot norsk barnevern i Romania lørdag. Denne måneden holdes det nitten demonstrasjoner mot norske ambassader på tre kontinenter i forbindelse med en omstridt barnevernssak.
(Several thousand people demonstrated against Norwegian child protection in Romania on Saturday. This month there will be nineteen demonstrations against Norwegian embassies on three continents in connection with a controversial child protection case.)
VG, 9 January 2016

The article brings interview with ambassadors and authorities etc. Their attitude is all the time that what is missing is for the foreigners to "understand". When Norway informs them, other countries will understand, they believe. Their thoughts are free from any idea that Norway's child protection may in fact be doing something radically wrong – may really, in actual fact, be an abuser.

I have added links to videos from Prague and from London in the reports above. In the one from the London demonstration, there is a long speech in Romanian. One hears several times the words "Barnevernet" and "Satan"! Late in the video we see an Embassy functionary arrive, she refuses to say anything, and goes in, shutting the door. Towards the end one hears the words "diabolic state".

Here is a video with examples included from several demonstrations:

A good revue, with videos, of some of the demonstrations so far:

22 January 2016:

From some of the demonstrations mentioned above we are without reports. The support group's facebook page says that they took place in Moscow and Riga, with 10 and 20 people respectively. These few deserve praise, and their effort is all the more valuable. This is the way it has to start in many places. It is about the number who took part in demonstrations against Barnevernet here in Norway too for many years.

A survey of coming demonstrations (+ one from yesterday) looks like this (I number them consecutively with what I did in my posting of 16 January at time 7:29am):


8.   Vilnius, Lithuania – 21 January 2016

9.   Bratislava, Slovakia – 23 January 2016

10. Tallinn, Estonia – 23 January 2016

11. Oradea, Romania – 23 January 2016

12. Satu Mare, Romania – 23 January 2016

13. St. Petersburg, Russia – 23 January 2016

14. Dublin, Ireland – 24 January 2016

15. Warsaw, Poland – 30 January 2016

16. Melbourne, Australia – 30 January 2016

17. Bistrita, Romania – 30 January 2016

18. Baia Mare, Romania – 30 January 2016

19. Sibiu, Romania – 30 January 2016

20. New Delhi, India – 31 January 2016, outside the Norwegian Embassy

21. Kolkata, India – 31 January 2016, outside the Norwegian Consulate

I have also heard of one more, not yet confirmed, for the coming week:
22. San Francisco, USA Week 4 ?
