Norwegian Train Drivers Strike For Gaza

From the Stop the War Coaition in the UK:

The Norwegian Locomotive Drivers Union has shown what trade
unions in Britain should be doing now: taking action in
support of the Palestinians in Gaza.
On Thursday 8 January all trains in the whole of Norway, and
all trams and subways in Oslo, stood still for two minutes in
protest against the Israeli invasion. The union issued the
following information for passengers:
Because of the situation in the Gaza Strip, the Locomotive
Drivers Union in Norway has decided to demonstrate our
solidarity with the Palestinian people. This will be organised
by adding two more minutes of stoppage at the station. The
same action applies to all passenger trains in Norway
simultaneously. We demand the immediate withdrawal of all
Israeli troops from the Palestinian territory. Thank you for
your understanding.
