Activists from the group “Stop oil exploration” were removed by the police on Monday morning after they stopped traffic in Trondheim city center.

At 7:45 AM on Monday, several protesters blocked the traffic at the Elgseter bridge in Trondheim. The group is part of an international campaign, which has announced that the protests will also spread to other places in Norway during the week, the newspaper Adresseavisen writes.

The activists wore reflective vests and had banners with the inscription “Stop oil exploration.” The protest blocked all traffic in and out of Trondheim city center in the morning rush hour.

The police arrived at the scene and assessed the situation. After barely half an hour, the protesters were carried out of the roadway, and the road was reopened.

  1. Disruptive, confrontational tactics like these are not helpful and can instead alienate the very public (opinion and support) environmental activism desperately needs.
