Anti-Islamisation Marchers Attacked in Norway

Øyvind Heian, the head of Norway Patriots (Norgespatriotene) organised a small demonstration in the centre of Oslo against the Islamisation of Norway on Saturday.

He found himself pelted with eggs, kicked and spat at as 15-20 counter-demonstrators attacked his group of 10-15 people.

The police used this altercation as an excuse to call off the demonstration.

When asked who had attacked the group, the police said that it had been disrupted by individuals with 'completely different views on the subject', and stressed that those responsible for the violence would be treated as just that - individuals without group affiliation.

Islam in Europe has more:

The police were notified in advance of the legal demonstration that was organized by SIAN, which wants to "stop the Islamization of Norway", but a fight broke out on Egertorget already half an hour before the event was supposed to start.

Police inspector Johan Fredriksen of the Oslo police told VG Nett that the group was attacked by 15-20 people who had a completely different view on the issue, but a more primitive way of communicating.

He didn't want to say which groups the attackers belong to, and says that the police sees the counter-demonstrators as individuals. One person was lightly injured in the fight, and one person was arrested. Fredriksen says that though many disagree with the group's ideas, it was a legal demonstration.

The demonstration was called off after the attack against the 10-15 anti-Islam protesters.
Øyvind Heian, head of Norway Patriots (Norgespatriotene) told Dagbladet.no that eggs were thrown at him, he was spat on and kicked.

Police intervened after he was pushed into a police car and the Blitz activists (anarchist-communist youth movement) surrounded the car.

In recent days the Blitz movement and Red party organized an SMS campaign against the demonstration. According to one of the organizers of the counter-demonstration Norway Patriots are Nazis whose motives go further than to just show their opposition to Islam.

Both SIAN and Norway Patriots deny they are racist organizations and describe themselves as organizations against immigration to Norway.

Sounds like a little more than a few disgruntled individuals, does it not?

Interesting how we hear all about the alleged motives of Norgespatriotene, but nothing at all about the alleged and actual motives of 'Blitz' and 'Red Party'.
