After Extinction Rebellion climate activists stuck themselves in a gallery in Storting Hall, a complaint was lodged with police by Storting. Many destructive politicians have described them as immoral and extremist.
But in 2021, outdoor furniture manufacturer Vestre entered into a three-year collaboration with AS Group, and they were awarded NOK 300,000. Commerce and Industry Minister John Christine Westre owns 70 percent of the company, and was general manager until he became secretary of state last fall.
Referred to as life and health
In the fall of 2021, Vestre AS ended the collaboration two years ahead of schedule, while John Christian Westre was appointed Minister of Commerce and Industry by Prime Minister Jonas Kahr Store.
Dagbladet attributed the breach of the agreement to actions against airports in Sweden in October 2021.
– The destructive insurgency has taken action in several airports in Sweden and we believe it endangers life and health, which is something we do not want or can support, said Vestre, strategy and sustainability manager at øyvind Bjørnstad.
Now it can be revealed that the reason given by Westray AS for Dagbladet, Extinction Rebellion is completely different. Dagbladet was given an email access, which was the new manager’s role as a member of the government, which prevented him from continuing to cooperate.
«(…) Our former CEO Jan Christian has been appointed Minister of Commerce in the new Government of Norway. Therefore, we need to suspend this contract until further notice »writes the same strategy and sustainability manager.
Bjørnstad confirms that the email is genuine. Beyond that, the company will not comment on the reasons for the departure.
– We state the reasons for our termination of this collaboration. As a result of operations at Bromma, Arlanda and Malmö airports, management in Vestre decided to end their cooperation, Bjørnstad writes in an email to Dagbladet.
– No doubt
Over the past year, Extinction Rebellion has faced several fines and trials. Those who went to the church in Sky responded when Easter worship was interrupted by a perishing rebellion that tried to enter with the dead animals hanging on the cross.
They created a traffic jam when they blocked the road in front of the palace and entered Westray’s own corridors in the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
– John Christian Westrey will be Minister of Commerce and Industry because we have stopped supporting him. We think this is understandable, but it explains why politicians’ public opinion is often not their own, says Christian Hanson, a spokeswoman for the Extremist Rebellion.
– Blackens us
Dagbladet has seen documents showing that the agreement should be used for three years and that the Destructive Rebellion in 2022 and 2023 should receive more financial assistance. The company has only applied for the first year of the 300,000 received, but it has not been determined how much they will receive in the coming years.
The climate system reacts to the interpretation used by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to break the agency’s cooperation.
– We are amazed at the need to blacken out the extinction republic Norway as someone who endangers life and health and opposes democracy.
Dagbladet has asked Trade and Industry Minister John Christian Westray for an opinion, but the Ministry of Commerce and Industry points out that he and the furniture manufacturer have no further contact.
“When Vestre became Minister of Commerce and Industry, he was out of business with the company, so Vestre AS was the one to respond,” Camila Peterson, executive liaison manager, wrote in an email.
