Norwegian Child Welfare Services
For several years, Norwegian parents have been persecuted outside the perimeters of the rule of law. The Norwegian state unjustly targets their kids and this correspondence explains why we ask employees to resist the status quo.
For more than a decade, the Norwegian police have been instrumental in violating human rights. They have long ignored our call for responsible policing and in this correspondence we ask some questions that must be answered.
As prohibition continues without regard for the rule of law, AROD have held Norwegian public officials to account for violating human rights:
Regarding the AROD civil disobediance campaign:
Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions
For 10 years the Norwegian Director of Public Prosecutions has denied drug law violators the right to an effective remedy. In this letter, (which is in English) we attempt to open a channel of communication and arange for a constructive legal process by asking how much cannabis he wants delivered before accepting--and supporting--the right to an effective remedy:

AROD against NRK
With the Royal Commission finishing its report, the Norwegian media has been a hothouse for debate on drug policy. In 2020 alone AROD had 28 articles in the national newspapers, but one news organization (NRK) has been adamant in denying a voice to the persecuted population. For this reason AROD has filed a complaint with the Norwegian Press Complaints Commission:
AROD letter to all politicians
As drug policy reform progresses, AROD have sent such a letter to every politician at the Norwegian Storting, informing about constitutional duties in times of moral panic:
