Norwegian solidarity with Pakistan

Monday 13 September 2010, by Farooq Tariq

A great initiative to help the flood victims has been taken by comrade Toni Usman in Norway. He is a professional actor of television, film and stage in Norway. He has been able to organize a special theater performance in Oslo on 19th September.

Prominent actors and directors are working voluntarily for this performance. There are already eleven cultural organisations including the Artists Association of Norway who have sponsored this performance. The proceeds of this show will go to Labour Relief Campaign Pakistan. We have got the information that 10,000 Norwegian Kronor have already been donated for this show by two organisations.

Toni Usman has been a member of editorial board of Weekly Mazdoor Jeddojuhd and a supporter of Labour Party Pakistan for long time. We wish him all the success and hopefully this initiative will bring the two social and cultural movements of Norway and Pakistan more closer.
