When the Norwegian parliament (Storting) gathers to talk about the electricity situation on 19 September, several actors plan to gather for a demonstration outside the building.
The main initiator of the protest is Industriaksjonen, and the demonstration takes place in collaboration with the Facebook group “We who demand cheaper electricity,” the newspaper Klassekampen writes.
According to the newspaper, the protest requirements are a maximum price for the necessary consumption of electricity for households and industry, political control of power exports to ensure the security of supply, and renegotiation of the agreements related to the foreign cables to England and Germany.
A number of people from political parties, organizations, businesses, and private individuals will participate, Boye Ullmann, leader of Industriaksjonen, told Energinytt24 – the Facebook group’s own online newspaper.
