From Toffa Berg Photography

Norway, my Norway

Friday was a grim and dark day for Norway. Both with the bombing of Oslo and the shooting at Utøya where 86 youths were gunned down coldblooded by a deranged right-wing terrorist. In this time, Norway have showed their good side, and promoted solidarity, compassion, and a will to reach out a hand to those in need. We have showed that we’re a peaceloving people. Both king and goverment have showed strength and that they’re a part of the people. No cries for more military force or revenge, and I want to sound my voice for the cries for more democracy and justice. 
There are no justice in screaming to alter the law for deathsentence. None of the people who lost their life at Utøya and Oslo will be brought back. The greef will not be lighter to bear if the guilty is killed. So I hope we can show both our self and the world at large that we’re norwegian, the champions of peace and humanity. So my pleed to you, cry for justice, not revenge.
As I see the debates on facebook now rages with both pro and con deathsentence, I would like to say that no humanitarian, solidarity, and democratic society can uphold it’s status and likewise practice deathsentence. Even the UN has branded this type of punishment as amoral.
And to all of you out there in Norway screaming for deathsentence for Andres Behring Breivik, please silence your cry and use it to cry for justist. Make the goverment and the people of the country know that we’ll never forget and that this is a time to uphold the promise of more openess, humanity and democracy. Let the courts know that the need to flex their muscels and give this traitor the full penalty of the law.
