...And Because I Love You...(Viva Norwegian people)

Oslo, in April 26 2012, 40,000 people started to sing the song Anders Behring Breivik told in court that he despises the most.

The song is the Norwegian version of Pete Seeger's "My Rainbow Race", rewritten in Norwegian and released in the early 1970s by singer/songwriter Lillebjørn Nilsen who is the lead in this recording from the Norwegian Broadcasting corporation (NRK).

This extremely well known and popular song was sung by the crowd at the Youngstorget square before they all walked to the court building, still singing, laying down roses outside while court was still in session.
