Geir Isene announces a demonstration in Norway which will coincidences with the ISO SC34 meeting in the Nordic nation. International members of the SC34 are supposed to convene in Oslo for a meeting.
Steve Pepper, the former Chairman of the Norwegian committee responsible for deciding the Norwegian vote on OOXML, is calling for a demonstration to take place outside the building where SC34, the ISO committee that has been landed with OOXML, is holding its spring plenary.
The demonstration will take place outside Håndverkeren, Rosenkrantzgate 7, Oslo, Norway, on Wednesday April 9 at 12.00.
Among the slogans are
- Ecma: Withdraw OOXML!
I wonder if a wiser call would be the demand to remove the A-liaision status of ECMA International. Looks like some persons will take their lunch break on the streets.
Update: This group has also posted a complaint to the Norwegian Minister of Science regarding the way Standard Norway has been handling the OOXML case. Only ODF is accepted as a document standard in Norway.
