Angriff auf norwegische Antirassismusorganisation
27.3.12 – Letzte Woche wurde ein Büro der norwegischen Antirassismusorganisation „SOS Rassisme“ angegriffen. In ihrem Bericht ziehen der Kassierer der Organisation, Kjell Gunnar Larsen, auch die Verbindung zur Hetze, die seit zwei Jahren in der Zeitung Dagbladet gegen sie läuft. Wir verurteilen die feigen Attacken! Kein Fußbreit für Faschisten und Rassisten!
Hier ihre Erklärung auf englisch:
„Attacks on SOS Rasisme office
The office of SOS Rasisme in Haugesund (Southwestern Norway) has been a subject of vandalism. Three windows have been broken with stones.
Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning the office has been a
subject of vandalism. Activist and treasurer Kjell Gunnar Larsen has
the following answers to what has happened and what’s the background of
What has happened?
When I came to the office on Monday at around 1130 I was met by a sad
sight. Three large windows had been broken and glass and stones were
spread a long way into the office. The police was oriented about the
misdeed and has conducted a survey to secure evidence. They have also
sent a requisition to a glazier who has taped the windows.
The police however chose not to contact us.
What do you think is the background for that it was exactly the SOS Rasisme office that was attacked?
For me as an active antiracist in this town for several years vandalism
and threats from Nazis is not a new phenomenon, even though we have been
saved for such attacks during the last couple of years.
The Norwegian daily Dagbladet has however run a hostile campaign
against us now for two years where they have twisted and turned the
truth and given place for anybody who has held a grudge against SOS
Rasisme. These people have gotten a place in the paper whatever their
motives have been and how fantastic their stories have been. Dagbladet
has not given us the right to answer to these stories, thus we have not
had an opportunity to come with our arguments in a fair way.
Do you mean that Dagbladet is to blame for the attack against the Haugesund office?
Of course I do not suspect that people employed in Dagbladet have thrown
the stones. But this campaign against SOS Rasisme has of course had
consequenses. They have run a campaign against us and created a witch
hunt. They have created a climate where it is allowed to harass us. The
breaking of windows is only a physical expression of this.
They have also put a lot of pressure on all of our fiscal supporters and
politicians so that they can paralyze us economically, and several of
the fiscal supporters and politicians have not been hard to ask.
We have been a guard dog against the inhuman asylum politics run by the
government. We have consequently critizised the racism they have spread
in order to get votes in the electoral campaign – whatever party it has
been. This struggle has given us enemies. All these factors multiplied
have lead to the central organs of SOS Rasisme have had to prioritize
legal processes instead of working against racism and Nazism for two
But we have no intentions to lay down and die. Around all of Norway
our local branches are active in many ways. We are in the front line in
the work against Nazis and against deportations of refugees who are in
danger of being returned to torture and prosecution. The struggle
against racism continues!“
