ICELANDERS DEMONSTRATE THE POWER OF NON-VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION

You know, in Iceland, when their elected representatives ignored their calls and letters and pursued an agenda favoring corporations and the wealthy, citizens surrounded their parliament and here’s what happened: “Protesters were calling for the resignation of government officials and for new elections to be held. The protests stopped for the most part with the resignation of the old government led by the right-wing Independence Party.   A new left-wing government was formed after elections. . . It was supportive of the protestors and initiated a reform process that included the judicial prosecution before the Landsdómur of the former Prime Minister Geir Haarde.   Their country, as a result, did NOT bail out the corrupt banks.   Iceland recovered from the 2008 financial crisis more quickly than most nations around the world.

How about them apples? 🙂
