On 4 March 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Oslo issued a Demonstration Alert regarding an upcoming demonstration on 8 March, which reads in part as follows:

“A demonstration is planned to take place at the U.S. Embassy in Oslo off of Sørkedalsveien in the Huseby neighborhood on Monday, March 8, 2021. The group plans to gather outside Parliament at 1 PM, then march from Parliament to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and finally come to the U.S. Embassy. The demonstration is scheduled to conclude at 3 PM. The Embassy anticipates 20 demonstrators; local police will direct them to protest in a designated area away from the Embassy grounds, approximately 100 meters northeast of the Embassy.

“The start times and number of demonstrators involved in demonstrations are variable. Furthermore, while most demonstrations in Oslo are coordinated with local police and remain peaceful, even demonstrations expected to be non-violent are unpredictable and can escalate into violence. Accordingly, U.S. citizens are advised to proceed with caution and consider avoiding these areas from approximately 12-5pm.”
