Norwegian government and current hunger strikes in Guantanamo

Yep. I officially tried making the world a better place by shouting into a small online community. It’s because I saw this tweet.

My reaction was that of, “what is the Norwegian government doing about this?” So I searched online.

  1. Googled: “Regjeringen Guantanamo” – Isolated for the last month
  2. Googled: “Staten Guantanamo” – Isolated for the last month
  3. Googled: “Stortinget Guantanamo” – Isolated for the last month
  4. Googled: “Guantanamo” – Isolated for the last month and sites in Norway

That last search yielded one result. Edit: Thankfully a bit more attention have been given, though our government remain impressively still. I understand that there are a lot of very complicated crisises around the world as well as that the news agencies have to focus on cases that are newsworthy and of public interest. So I wonder if this isn’t such a case. Politics is prioritization of resources and many issues deservere attention I just wish this has gotten some more national attention and perhaps even a reaction from our government.

Edit: Asked our minister of foreign affairs if our government would take a stand regarding this ongoing hunger strike.
