Seven environmental activists from the group Extinction Rebellion, with white-painted faces and in red suits, interrupted the Easter service in Skien church on Sunday.

At noon, the police announced that they had moved out after seven protesters interrupted a service in Skien.

The demonstrators were wearing red suits and had white-painted faces. The police were quickly on the scene, and everything went smoothly.

“The activists from the group Extinction Rebellion say they have carried out an environmental protest and that they will follow the police order,” task leader Kamilla Aardal said.

“We do not know why they chose to demonstrate in the church and what they wanted to protest with the demonstration. As for the consequences for the seven, we are a little unsure whether they can actually be punished for the incident,” Aardal said.

  1. I fully support the environmentalists, and the Ukraine War is crippling the internationally united environmental action we desperately need, but …
    Easter services would have many children, and these “activists” were dressed up to frighten if not terrorize them.
    (I do wonder how many of these witch-like … persons … have children themselves.)
    This stunt should be legally prosecuted, if it can be, to the maxL.

  2. There is a report that children and the elderly were indeed terrorize by these characters.
    Have they been identified? Are they genuine environmental activists, or provocateurs intended to discredit environmentalists?
    Either way, again, this stunt should be legally prosecuted to the max.
