Tens of thousands of Norwegians sang the song the killer, Breivik hated to hear

Thursday, 26 April 2012
Thousand of people gathered in the squares all over Norway today to "re-conquer" the song the mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik say it has been used to "brainwash" Norwegian children.

Despite the rainy weather people gathered to sing Little Bear Nilsen's song "Children of regnbuen" which is a Norwegian version of the Pete Seegers "My Rainbow Race".
The manifestation of Norwegians gathered in more than 20 locations around the country and was initiated by two individuals.
“I am doing this because we have to take back the song and sing it as a tribute to the survivors, those who risked their lives to save others, and all those affected directly or indirectly,” say Lill Hjönnevåg, one of the organizers.

Lillehammer Bjorn Nilsen, one of Scandinavia's most famous singers, led the singing himself in central Oslo, where 40,000 people had gathered, according to police data.

In the crowd were among others the Norwegian Minister of Culture, Anniken Huitfeldt who had called his Nordic Culture colleagues, including Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth to sing in the demonstration.
Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik said in the lawsuit on Friday that he believes that the songwriter Nilsen is "Marxist" and that he can not stand the song.

The statement led to a campaign on Facebook where the Norwegians were invited to gather on the square to sing the song together. The square is located a few blocks from Oslo courthouse where the trial of Breivik is underway for the second week.
