It is thought the arrangement will kick off at Klosterenga Sculpture Park, an area with five mosques and high immigrant concentration. Domestic and international individuals will reportedly be holding speeches.

The Norwegian Defence League (NDL) and Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) are joining forces for the event, according to leftist newspaper Klassekampen.

“We want to wake up Norwegians and so-called moderate Muslims to show the extremism in their own religion,” NDL board member Kjetil Kjønli explained, refuting allegations by Norwegian Centre Against Racism leader Kari Helene Partapuoli the NDL deliberately picked the Grønland area out of contentiousness.

Ms Partapuoli’s organisation will be holding a march on the same day.

This is in cooperation with several LO (Confederation of Trade Unions) associations, Oslo SV (Socialist Left Party), SU (Socialist Youth League of Norway, and RU (Red Youth), amongst others, to “show everything that’s positive about the multicultural society,” she declared.

The Centre has strongly distanced itself from planned counterdemonstrations by Ny SOS Rasisme allegedly aimed at stopping the NDL.

Klassekampen also reports some 114 NDL supporters have signed up for next weekend’s demonstration.
