What is worth demonstrating for?





















Yesterday thousands of people were on strike and demonstrating to say a big NO to the new regulations that will change employees conditions for the worse!

I hope the politicians will know what to vote for!

SO WHAT IS WORTH DEMONSTRATING FOR??

Do you remember Paris a few weeks back??


But locally there are situations like:
An unsafe road where kids are going to school?
Local hospitals closing down?
An industrial company that the owners are selling, and will be moved out of the country?

I think STRIKING/ DEMONSTRATIONS are a democratic right that is important!!

Have YOU been out striking?

I don`t know the name of todays model, but I was allowed to put it out here. So thanks, Mr.X :)

Strike.















It is a long time since I have seen so many people at the old market place in Stavanger.
We had a legal strike today all over Norway.
More than 1,5 million people, members of different unions were out in a political strike between 14:00 and 16:00 this afternoon. It is difficult to say how many took part here, but as you can see, it was quite crowded.

The rain was pouring down and it was cold, but I think the politicians representing the Stavanger region received a clear message, and I hope that they will take what they saw and the appeals that were made,- back with them back to Oslo.

The working conditions / rights, are rapidly changing. Fewer permanent jobs, and then of course more people who are not able to get a bank loan without a permanent job.

Today,  planes, busses and trains stopped for an hour or two.
Nurses, teachers, scientists as well as engineers were out demonstrating.

What I remember the most was :

"You should not endure the injustice that does not concern yourself".

It is an old saying, but still so true!

Artistic "Jingle Bells".





















I like the fact that there is ART by different artists around in public spaces,

like this, outside one of the buildings at the University.

Unfortunately, I don't know who the artist is, but when I find out I will add it on this posting.
