40,000 Norwegians Sing Outside Trial

    People gather beside flower decked railings as they participate in a protest during which the gathering sang a song hated by mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik in Oslo on April 26, 2012.   Tens of thousands of rose-waving Norwegians gathered in central Oslo to deride mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik by singing a song he hates, viewing it as Marxist indoctrination. Some 40,000 people, according to police, massed in the rain at a square near the Oslo district courthouse where Breivik is on trial for his July 22 attacks that killed 77 people, to sing "Children of the Rainbow" by Norwegian folk singer Lillebjoern Nilsen.

Over 40,000 people crowded into the central square of Oslo, singer Peter Seeger's "My Rainbow Race" in the rain as the trial took place inside.

Protesters also marched on the courthouse in Oslo and lined walkways
