Norway should relocate 1,500 children and families with children from Greece over two years, according to the Norwegian Organization for Asylum Seekers. On Thursday, there was a demonstration at the Storting (Norwegian parliament) regarding this.

During the demonstration, the organizations behind it delivered 9,000 postcards signed by people who believe Norway should take greater responsibility in this matter.

One of the organizations was the Norwegian Organization for Asylum Seekers (NOAS).

“Norway has failed the children in the Moria camp in Greece. The situation in the camp has been serious for a very long time, and children have not been given basic human rights. Following the catastrophic fire in the camp, the government will finally evacuate vulnerable people from the inhumane situation. But it should have been far more than 50. It is high time that the government acts on this”, says Secretary-General Ann-Magrit Austenå in Noas.

The letter and postcards were delivered to Storting politicians Olemic Thomassen (H), Hans Fredrik Grøvan (KrF), and Solveig Schytz (V).
