What did the young victims murdered at Utøya believe in?
For many families, this was a dream camp for their children, turned into a hell by admitted terrorist Anders Behring Breivik. My thoughts are with them as they rebuild towards a brighter future.
According to the camp’s website:
We based our fundamental outlook on the democratic socialism. Our vision is that individuals together to create a free and just society, where ecology is in front of the economy, and human values ahead of material prosperity.
Our core values are:
Freedom for all people.
Justice in a society where everyone has equal opportunities.
Solidarity in a society where people take responsibility for each other.
Participation in a society where everyone is involved in creating the future.
Respect for nature and a society in harmony with nature’s carrying capacity.
