Boycott for Norwegian Newspapers with Breivik photos on the front page

Thursday, 04 August 2011
Norwegians are now getting tired of the news about the mass murderer and the feeling that the media is trying to make meals out of the tragedy. The latest trend now is to boycott newspapers that carry the killer’s photo on their front pages.

This came in after a massive email campaign calling on the market to boycotting news papers and shops carry the picture of the mass killer. Now several shops in Norway are boycotting newspapers with pictures of the suspected mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, on its front page.


There has been a huge email campaign since the terrorist attacks in Oslo and Ut�ya on July 22.

The campaign has largely been that one should boycott the picture postings of the suspected mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik. Both Facebook and Twitter have seen similar messages sent and also news organizations have received vast amounts of such emails.
One of the messages reads that:
"Today, hundreds of Norwegians gathered on our streets to honour the victims and to show love and support. Please write about this but remove all images of the perpetrator and the massacres in Oslo and at Ut�ya. It was his (Anders Behring Breivik) desire to be exposed - do not let his seed to germinate. Choose love. We do."

The Norwegian retail chain Kiwi has decided not to let some of its stores sell newspapers on with photos Anders Behring Breivik on their front page.
