    Anti-war protests in Trondheim

    Every Saturday there are protests and marches around town and by simply looking you would think that people in this country and city are really fed up with their poor lives and living conditions.

    The fact is that Norwegians are among the richest nations in the world but are still very sensitive for the World order. So, it is one of the rituals (and also a way of socialising) to protest on Saturday mornings. Against what? Simply choose: the most popular marches I participated were against War in Iraq, for the protection of the Amazon forests, against nuclear weapons, for worldwide protection of sub-tenants, global protest against globalisation, for the better salaries of workers in Asia and a protest for the moratory on scientific publishing.

    The participants usually gather somewhere in the centre and make a circle around few blocks in the town centre, ending temporarily at Torvet before splitting to smaller groups that enjoy the beer in local pubs.
