The Norwegian anti-Islamic group "Stopp islamiseringen av Norge" will hold a rally outside of the Parliament building in Oslo today. Large counter-protests are expected. The last time the group held a rally the leader was attacked & Beaten.
The rally is set to begin in 10 minutes. I will provide y'all with live updates.

So far, normal activism is taking place in the form of chants, no violence. A large security perimeter is around the group for extra security.
