Many people across Norway will honour the victims of the July 22nd 2011 attack on Oslo and the island of Utøya.

77 people were killed and around 90 wounded in the terror attacks carried out by Anders Behring Breivik.

On Tuesday, Oslo marks the third anniversary of the massacre with a public forum at government headquarters, at the water mirror towards Akersgata. It will be opened by John Hestnes, assistant leader of the National Support Group, formed after the killings.

Following this, the AUF (Workers’ Youth League) chairman, Eskil Pedersen, and prime minister Erna Solberg will make speeches. The prime minister will lay down a wreath, and there will be a minute’s silence to remember the victims. Representatives from the Norwegian government and parliament will be present.

There will be a performance by Norwegian pianist and singer Maria Mohn.

At 12am there will be a service of hope in Oslo cathedral. Crown Prince Haakon will be present among others.

The full Oslo event will be broadcast directly across Norwegian media.

Across Norway’s municipalities, wreaths will be laid down at memorial stones for the 77 people killed in the attacks on the government quarters and on Utøya island.

In Trondheim, there will be a memorial ceremony in the city hall park at 2pm.

The Norwegian prime minister will take part in a special memorial ceremony on Utøya at 4pm on Tuesday. The National Support Group and AUF will join Labour Party chairman Jonas Gahr Støre, AUF chairman Eskil Pedersen and leader of the support group, Trond Henry Blattmann. All will make speeches.

Anger as Italian MP praises Norway gunman

4 August 2011

Anders Breivik, the far-right extremist who confessed to the killings of 77 people in Norway two weeks ago, has found ideological support in what some may consider an unlikely place: the halls of the Italian parliament.

Mario Borghezio, an Italian politician, has termed Breivik’s philosophy “perhaps great”, a statement for which he was suspended, but not sacked, by his Northern League Party.

Borghezio’s remarks, and those of other right-wing Italian politicians, seem to indicate that mainstream political discourse in the country is moving further rightwards on the political spectrum.

The Northern League in the present European parliament is in the same coalition, the EFD, as the Ukip party in Britain. After this month’s European elections, they intend to have a coalition with extreme right parties like the National Front in France and Geert Wilders‘ PVV party in the Netherlands.

Geert Wilders, left, and Borghezio, right

Borghezio is a good friend of Geert Wilders.

Borghezio was expelled from the EFD group in the European parliament at the request of Ukip leader Farage. However, Borghezio’s party, the Northern League which did not expel him but defended him, then stayed in the EFD.

There used to be another extreme right organisation also called the Northern League during the late twentieth century in Britain and other countries.

EU: Scotland‘s future depends on MEPs as much as independence referendum, say anti-racism campaigners

Thursday 8th May 2014

Labour and No2EU election rivals join forces at Glasgow anti-racism meeting to warn against spread of the far-right across Europe

Scotland’s future depends on its representatives in Brussels as much as the referendum, anti-racist campaigners have warned in the run-up to this month’s EU elections.

Two rival candidates in the looming European parliament votes are to set aside their differences this evening at a Glasgow event challenging the resurgence of fascist parties across the continent.

Labour party activist and former Scottish TUC president Katrina Murray is expected to take to the hustings alongside No2EU’s Andrew Elliott.

Organiser Hope Not Hate Scotland said the meeting was “especially topical” given Ukip’s recent attempts to make inroads into Scotland.

Hope Not Hate’s Rab O’Donnell said it was crucial to cast a vote against racist right-wing organisations.

With voter turnout historically as low as 34 per cent, it was easy for such groups to seize power with a small but hardcore base of supporters.

Meanwhile, Ukip’s 13 English MEPs have sought to bolster their influence in Brussels with the far-right alliance Europe of Freedom and Democracy, whose Italian co-president Francesco Speroni described mass murderer Anders Breivik as acting “in defence of western civilisation.”

“Whatever way the independence referendum goes, it’s still going to be those MEPs sitting in the European Parliament,” Mr O’Donnell said.

“If Ukip increases its seats in the European parliament it will see the same far-right shift that is happening in Westminster.”

The free event, part of the Friends of May Day calendar, is from 7pm in Partick Burgh Halls, Glasgow.

Norwegian murderer Breivik’s victims remembered by Swedish artist


This 2012 video is called One year on: Norway remembers Anders Behring Breivik’s victims.

From daily The Guardian in Britain:

Wounded landscape: how Norway is remembering its 2011 Utøya massacre

Artist Jonas Dahlberg has been chosen to create three memorials, one of which cuts a 3.5m slit in the landscape, to remember the victims of Anders Behring Breivik

Cameron Robertson

Thursday 6 March 2014 11.28 GMT

A Swedish artist has been selected to create official memorials at the sites of the 2011 Norwegian massacres carried out by right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik.

The competition, called Memorial Sites After 22 July, was won by Jonas Dahlberg, who will create three artworks at a cost of 27m Norwegian kroner (£2.7m) to the government in Oslo.

This video is about Zoetrope, a Jonas Dahlberg sculpture.

The most striking memorial is called Memory Wound. The 43-year-old artist has sliced a three-and-a-half-metre-wide slit into the Sørbråten peninsula, which faces the island of Utøya where Breivik killed 69 people. It marks a “symbolic wound” in the landscape.

One hundred cubic metres of the stone cut from Sørbråten will be transferred to the governmental quarter in Oslo, where another memorial will mark the spot where a car bomb was detonated by Breivik that resulted in eight deaths.

A temporary pathway in the capital, between Grubbegata and Deichmanske library, will also be made by Dahlberg, who will later take trees from Sørbråten to create a permanent amphitheatre in the government quarter called Time and Movement.

Breivik, now serving a 21-year prison sentence, told an Oslo court in 2012 that his victims – many of whom were teenagers attending the Labour party’s annual summer camp – were facilitating the “Islamisation of Norway”.

The jury for the competition, who reached a unanimous decision, included representatives of the Labour party and victim support groups. Dahlberg beat 300 other entries, including former Turner prize winner Jeremy Deller. Two memorials will be unveiled on 22 July 2015 – the fourth anniversary of the attacks – with the amphitheatre to come at a later date.

“It is a big responsibility and in many ways the most important work I have done,” Dahlberg told the Guardian. “I was already honoured to be considered when I was invited to be in the competition, so to have won now is a bit hard to grasp.”

The Swedish artist, who lives and works in Stockholm, said he hoped the memorial would provide a state of reflection through its “poetic rupture”. He said: “It should be difficult to see the inherent beauty of the setting, without also experiencing a sense of loss. It is this sense of loss that will physically activate the site.”

The headland of the Sørbråten memorial will be engraved with names of all the victims; visitors will be able to read them but not reach to touch them. “People will find their own way through the landscape around the cut,” said Dahlberg, “looking down at the channel and at the victims’ names from high up, or looking out to Utøya, establishing their own private ways of seeing and remembering.”

Mari Aaby West of the Norwegian Labour party youth league and John Hestnes, of the national support group for victims of the 22 July attacks, had passed on positive feedback from victims’ families who had viewed the designs, said Dahlberg, who did not speak directly to the relatives.

A statement from the jury for Public Art Norway, which included West and Hestnes, said Dahlberg’s idea to make a physical incision in the landscape stood like a “symbolic wound”.

It said: “The void that is created evokes the sense of sudden loss combined with the long-term missing and remembrance of those who perished. The proposal is radical and brave, and evokes the tragic events in a physical and direct manner.”

Designs for two memorials in the government quarter are not finalised, but Dahlberg explained his temporary pathway would lie beside an existing walkway, taking pedestrians off their usual path.

“The design physically relates to the interruption that occurred in the everyday life flow of Norwegian society,” he said. “Yet it is indeed everyday life that must carry on.”

Breivik received the maximum sentence available under Norwegian law. His prison term will be reviewed every two years after he completes a decade in jail.

‘Dutch Breivik’ terror plot in Belgium


This video from Norway is called New CCTV footage of Breivik‘s terror attack in Oslo.

Translated from Kathleen Heylen in Belgium:

Terror suspect wanted to attack Flemish radio and TV broadcasters

15/11/2013 – 06:31 Update: Fri 15/11/2013 – 11:49

In Sint-Niklaas a man has been arrested who is said to have planned to commit terrorist attacks. The man wanted to overthrow the Belgian state, including an attack against the VRT broadcasting organisation.

The 23-year-old man of Dutch origin was arrested on Wednesday night. He was in a bar trying to recruit people to carry out attacks. Like Anders Breivik in Norway, he had described in a manifesto how he wanted to overthrow the Belgian state.

“He’d been planning to proclaim on VRT TV his message and, if necessary, to do this by violence. He targeted some Belgian political institutions as well,” said Anthony Schotsaert from the Prosecutor’s Office in Dendermonde. The Belga news agency claims to have heard from a reliable source that he wanted to strike exactly today, King’s Day.

Pakistan’s Pervez Musharraf to be charged with former PM Benazir Bhutto’s murder next week

July 30, 2013 18:05 IST

Islamabad: Pakistan’s former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf will be charged with criminal conspiracy and murder of ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on August 6, even as his bail plea in the Akbar Bugti killing case was rejected today.

General Musharraf was produced in an anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi amidst tight security for today’s hearing in the Bhutto assassination case headed by judge Habibur Rahman.

Mr Rehman fixed August 6 to be the date to formally charge 69-year-old Musharraf.

The former President’s indictment would be an unprecedented move in a country ruled by military for more than half of its life.

The Rawalpindi court is hearing the case of the killing of two-time PM Bhutto.

Mrs Bhutto was assassinated in a gun-and-bomb attack outside Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on December 27, 2007, when General Musharraf was the president. She was killed after addressing an election campaign rally in the city.

State prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar Ali told media that “Musharraf will be produced at the next hearing on August 6″.

The charges relating to criminal conspiracy and murder will be read out before Musharraf and he will have to sign the charge sheet, he said.

Mr Rehman ordered the police that the accused should be present in the court to sign the charge sheet and respond to the charges.

General Musharraf was not produced in court in the last two hearings due to security reasons, prompting the judge to reprimand the police and order them to present the accused or make arrangement for hearing of the case in the jail.

Now, after this ex-military dictator and George W Bush crony, to another country, Norway; and another murderer, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic racist Anders Behring Breivik.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

Anders Behring Breivik, the right-wing extremist who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage in Norway two years ago, has applied to study political science at the University of Oslo.

Breivik, who is serving 21 years for the massacre at a Labour Party youth camp on Utoya Island and the Oslo bombing, argued that his actions were politically motivated, and since his incarceration has tried to set up a organisation aimed at “democratic fascist seizure of power in Norway”.

Survivors of Breivik’s rampage, meanwhile, are determined to make sure his intended legacy of wiping out the next generation of Labour politicians will never become a reality. Twenty-seven of them are standing for election in polls in early September.

The announcement of their candidacy came as Norway this month marked the two-year anniversary of the attacks, with the Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg, speaking out against extremism but vowing to make sure Norway remained an open and democratic society.

40-year-old Vikernes is a convicted murderer from Norway

Previously received a copy of a manifesto from Breivik

A neo-Nazi linked to Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has been arrested in France today following fears he might stage a large ‘terrorist act’.

Kristian Vikernes, a well-known black metal musician in Norway, was arrested with his French wife Marie Cachet after she recently bought four rifles.

The 40-year-old, who is a convicted murderer from Norway, had in the past received a copy of a manifesto from Breivik, the far-right militant who killed 77 people in 2011.

In a statement, France’s Interior Minister Manuel Valls said: ‘Having received the manifesto before (Breivik) committed his crimes and having been sentenced in Norway in the past for murder, this individual, who was close to a neo-Nazi movement, was likely to prepare a large terrorist act.’

Officers were searching his home in Correze for weapons and explosives, a police source said.

Breivik killed 77 people in a bombing in central Oslo and a shooting spree on a nearby island in July 2011. He was imprisoned last year for a maximum term of 21 years.

Breivik sent a copy of his manifesto setting out his ideology to Vikernes, an official at the Paris prosecutor’s office said.

Breivik’s 1,500-page manifesto outlined his planned crusade against Muslims, who he said were taking over Europe and could only be defeated through a violent civil war.

Cachet, 25, had a legal firearms permit when she bought the four rifles, the official said.

‘The investigation will notably establish the conditions in which these (rifles) were acquired and their real objective,’ Valls said. …

Vikernes, a black metal musician and writer known as Varg, was convicted in 1994 of stabbing a rival musician to death in Oslo and burning down several churches.

He was released from jail in 2009 and moved to France with his wife and three children.

French daily Le Monde reports that National Socialist Black Metal musician Vikernes on the Internet called on French voters to vote for the neo-fascist Front National party of Marine Le Pen. He called Norway “a Soviet state”.

Vikernes claims that Adolf Hitler and Norwegian World War II nazi leader Quisling “represent divine goodness”.

Murderer Breivik’s Belgian accomplices investigated


This video about the mass murder by Anders Behring Breivik is called Norway marks one year since massacre.

Translated from Belga news agency in Belgium:

Secret service conducts research into Belgian supporters of Breivik

28/11/12, 6:25

More than a year after the mass murders in Norway, the intelligence service of our country is investigating whether Anders Behring Breivik received information from Belgian accomplices. In his manifesto there are passages pointing into that direction, the Belgian Concentra newspapers say.

In Breivik’s manifesto there are some Dutch words, suggesting that he got information from Belgian allies. It is investigated from whom exactly the information was, the papers say. From his 1500 pages long manifesto it is apparent how terribly big his hatred of the European Union was.

“If Breivik would not have been arrested, and after the attacks of 22 July 2011 in Oslo he would have returned to the underground, we probably would have to fear attacks against the European institutions in Brussels”, the annual report of the state intelligence service says literally. The Tihange nuclear power plant is named in his manifesto as well.

According to the Gazet van Antwerpen daily, one of the people in Belgium to whom Breivik sent his manifesto, is Tanguy Veys of the extreme Right racist political party Vlaams Belang.

Anders Breivik not first terrorist linked to EDL

People oppose the EDL because of what it is, not because of what some EDL activists say they’d like it to be, and the facts are simple – the EDL is being used as a Trojan horse by Nazis and BNP activists.

From Reuters:

Norway killer Breivik wrote to German far-right suspect: Spiegel

BERLIN | Sun Nov 18, 2012 12:08pm EST

Anders Behring Breivik, who slaughtered 77 people in Norway last year, has written to a far-right gang member in Germany charged with helping in a series of racist killings, calling her a hero of national resistance, a German magazine reported.

Der Spiegel weekly reproduced on Sunday part of the letter the far-right Breivik sent to Beate Zschaepe, charged this month with involvement in the murders of nine immigrants – including eight from Turkey – and a policewoman between 2000 and 2007.

Zschaepe was a member of an underground cell called the National Socialist Underground (NSU), which police discovered by chance about a year ago. Two other male members of the gang were found dead.

The case raised concerns that German authorities had underestimated for decades the far-right threat. Several top intelligence officials have resigned since media revealed documents possibly linked to the NSU had been shredded.

Breivik addressed Zshaepe as “Dear Sister”, according to Der Spiegel, in his letter dated May 7, 2012 – a time when he was on trial in Oslo. “We are both among the first rain drops which indicate that there is a massive purifying storm approaching Europe,” the letter read.

“We are both martyrs for the conservative revolution and you should be extremely proud of your sacrifice and efforts. Know that your sacrifice is being celebrated in northern Europe by tens of thousands of cultural conservatives,” he wrote.

Breivik, who set off a bomb in Oslo before going on a shooting rampage on an island where teenagers were on a summer camp, was found sane by the Oslo court in August and jailed for the maximum 21-year term, although this can be extended. He saw himself as a warrior against Islam.

Der Spiegel also reported that Breivik called on Zaepsche to use her trial as a platform to espouse her views, as he had tried to do, but the magazine did not show that part of the letter.

In an interview with Der Spiegel, Federal Prosecutor Harald Range said he believed Zschaepe, who gave herself up, was involved in all the murders. The trio had “planned everything, organized everything and in the end carried out everything together”, he said.

Wilders supporters threaten rock singer’s life


This video is a Dutch regional TV interview with singer Bennie Jolink about his Hitler-Wilders-Breivik painting.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Monday, September 3, 2012, 13:07

Singer Bennie Jolink has been threatened because of his painting in which he shows Geert Wilders with Adolf Hitler and Anders Breivik.

In an interview with Nieuwe Revu weekly the singer of the band Normaal says that at his office threats have been received. Messages hoped that he would die or get serious illnesses. In the interview Jolink says that he does not need security guards: “I protect myself by laughing out loudly about it.”

Jolink also received messages of support for the painting.

That the supporters of Wilders’ xenophobic party now threaten this rock singer’s life, saying they would “come to get him”, shows that Bennie Jolink was not that wrong in depicting Wilders together with Breivik.

The decline in popularity of Geert Wilders and his Party for Freedon (PVV) in the Netherlands can be traced back to two months ago when a 63 year old Turkish man was attacked, and later died from his injuries. The couple who inflicted the injuries were named Henk and Ingrid, which are the names of the typical Dutch couple that Wilders had championed in public speeches: here.
