Demonstration Alert – U. S. Embassy Norway (May 5, 2021)

Location: U.S. Embassy in Oslo, Norway

Event:  Oslo Police provided notice of a planned demonstration by members of the Manchester United football supporter club outside the U.S. Embassy on the evening of Thursday, May 6th, from 7PM – 7:30PM. The precise number of demonstrators is unknown at this time but turnout is expected to be low by Oslo Police. Oslo Police will direct the group to a designated area away from the Embassy grounds, a grassy field located approximately 100 meters northeast of the Embassy and next to the grocery store. Although most demonstrations in Oslo are coordinated with local police and remain peaceful, the Embassy advises that even demonstrations expected to be non-violent can sometimes escalate into violence. Therefore, the Embassy advises U.S. citizens to avoid the demonstrators.
