Demonstration Alert – U. S. Embassy Norway (May 26, 2021)
Location: U.S. Embassy in Oslo, Norway
Event: The U.S. Embassy has been advised of a planned demonstration by the Ethiopian Association in Norway on Saturday, May 29, from 1:30-2:30 PM, at the U.S. Embassy. The anticipated number of demonstrators is unknown at this time, but Oslo Police expects turnout to be low. Oslo Police will direct the demonstrators to a designated area away from the Embassy grounds. This designated area is a grassy field located approximately 100 meters northeast of the Embassy.
Although most demonstrations in Oslo are coordinated with local police and remain peaceful, the Embassy advises that even demonstrations that are expected to be non-violent can sometimes escalate into violence. Therefore, the Embassy advises U.S. citizens to avoid the demonstrators.
