Our activists arrived at Sarpsborg town hall at around noon on Sunday with flags and leaflets. We chose the town hall as it’s the site of one of the polling stations in the upcoming general election.
At first we didn’t encounter any problems and had several conversations with passers-by. However, after a while the police inevitably turned up and started acting very aggressively.
They weren’t interested in having any dialogue with us and appeared to be visibly provoked by our presence. Two of the policemen were upset that independent journalists were filming in a public place, and one of them struck the camera out of the hand of one of our members.
I have noticed over the years that even among the most intelligent and educated of us, the ignorance, with regards to how our financial system actually works, is almost total. That’s even true when it comes to people who actually have an economic education, or who actually works within the financial marked. Now, of course, some of them do understand, but choose to stay silent to this most unfair system, due to the fact that they themselves benefit from it. Still, believe it or not, many simply do not have a clue. So, actually, you’re no dummy if you don’t understand the financial system. It is, I’m sad to say, the way it for just about all of us.
