Protesters demanding ceasefire gathered on Thursday evening to hold a torchlight procession against the violations against human rights during the conflict in Gaza.
This time, no appeal were held, though the power of the procession were tremendous when it was revealed that almost 3000 people attended.
Media have also made heroes out of two Norwegian doctors, amongst them Mads Gilbert, who touched the country through one SMS containing this message:
"sms fra Mads Gilbert:
Takk for all støtte. De bombet det sentrale grønnsaksmarkedet i Gaza by for to timer siden. 80 skadde, 20 drept, alt kom hit til Shifa. Hades! Vi vasser i død, blod og amputater. Masse barn, gravid kvinne. Jeg har aldri opplevd noe så fryktelig. Nå hører vi tanks. Fortell videre, send videre, rop det videre- Alt. GJØR NOE! GJØR MER! Vi lever i historieboka nå, alle!

SMS from Mads Gilbert:
Thanks for all the support. They bombed the local grocery store in Gaza city just two hours ago. 80 wounded, 20 killed, it all came from Shifa. Hades! Death is everywhere, blood and amputees.

Were alive, in the history books. Everyone!

It was announced that the two Norwegian surgeons left Gaza on Saturday, the 11th of January after having worked almost 24/7 since the conflict began.
In the meanwhile, protesters in Stavanger, Norway have announced that they will keep protesting every Saturday and Tuesday throughout the war in the Middle East
Clash in Oslo between protestant riots and police.
As the protests are proceeding, more violent riots have occured in the capital of Oslo. Riots have attacked shops and police resulting in the generally peaceful city ending up looking like a warzone. Politicians and regular peace campaigners condemn the attacks, claiming they are caused by immaturity and stupidity.
"Fighting war with violence is not the solution", a peace campaigner said while condemning the attacks.
Time is the only factor that really can determine the continuance of the conflict, both local, in Norway and in Gaza.
