On 9 June 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Oslo issued a Demonstration Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Event: The Embassy has been advised of a planned demonstration by the Union of Tigrayans in Norway on Friday, June 11, during 3:00-4:00 PM, at the U.S. Embassy. The anticipated number of demonstrators is 30. 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.”
