On several occasions, including all the semi-finals, demonstrations have been held outside the NRK building at Marienlyst in Oslo against Norway’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest as long as Israel is involved.

On Saturday evening, the demonstrators are in place outside Trondheim Spektrum where the final will take place.

Grave light

The demonstrators demand that NRK inform the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) that Israel is to be banned from the music competition.

During the commemoration, 100 people each hold their own grave candles.

– The burial lantern passage should be a reminder of what is happening in Gaza and the West Bank. With today’s action, we want to emphasize to the head of broadcasting and NRK that the actions and commitment continue with full force, says spokesperson Margrethe Guldal Einarsen.

Expected

NRK’s ​​entertainment editor Charlo Halvorsen told NTB on Friday that they expected demonstrations.

He emphasized that demonstrations are part of freedom of expression, and that it is therefore perfectly legal.

– But ruining it for others, such as interrupting a live broadcast, is not okay, says the entertainment editor.

During the first dolphin final in Oslo on 13 January, Rødt politician Jorunn Folkvord interrupted the live broadcast. The incident took place when presenter Fredrik Solvang was to interview Christine Dancke and Oscar Westerlin.
