That was the ratio of counter-demonstrators to demonstrators today at an anti-Islamization demonstration in Norway.
Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer didn’t have time to translate the full news report on what happened, but he sent this summary:
The Norwegian Defence League (NDL) and Stop Islamisation of Norway (SIAN) held a demonstration in Stavanger (west coast of Norway) on Saturday.
Approximately a hundred police officers in riot gear had to protect the meeting out of fear that ‘anti-racists’ would ‘disrupt’ the demo.
NDL and SIAN were cordoned off in a designated area and no one was allowed in once it kicked off, which kept the anti-NDL crowd at bay, but it also stopped ordinary people from entering the area and listening to the message of the demonstrators.
There were approximately forty people from NDL and SIAN present, and approximately a thousand counter-demonstrators. At lot of people who are sympathetic to the NDL and SIAN probably stayed away, fearing violent confrontations. The Left in Norway is renowned for physically attacking conservatives at demos.
