TO SHOW YOU THAT PEOPLE CAN PROTEST PEACEFULLY AND RADICALLY,JUST SO LONG AS THE POLICE DO NOT START A FIGHT!!
HERE ARE THE ICELANDICS KICKING OUT ANOTHER CORRUPT GOVERNEMNT ,WITHOUT THE POLICE BEATING UP KIDS OR SHOOTING PROTESTORS!!
EUROPEAN POLICE WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE ??? WHY DO YOU ALWAYS PROVOKE A FIGHT BY KETTELING THE DEMOSTRATORS(PURPOSELY BLOCKING AND CONFINING PROTESTORS)USING AGENT PROVOCATUERS AND JUST GENERALLY ARRIVING “UP FOR A FIGHT” AND SHOOTING AND BEATING UNARMED PROTESTORS?!!?
DO YOU THINK THAT IS PROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOUR? WELL I SUPPOSE THERE IS NOT AN INTELIGENCE TEST TO JOIN THE POLICE FORCE.
AMSTERDAM POLICE SHAME SHAME SHAME YOU BUNCH OF STREET THUGS!!! F*CK YOU!!
BUT THE POLICE FORCE ATTRACTS A CERTAIN TYPE OF POWER HUNGRY COWARDLY INDIVIDUAL
IT WAS THE EUROPEAN POLICEMEN THAT COLLABORATED AND CAPITUALATED IN WWII. WHETHER IT WAS THE ENGLISH POLICE IN THE CHANNEL ISLES , THE AMSTERDAM POLICE IN HOLLAND OR THE FRENCH POLICE IN FRANCE OR THE HUNGARIAN POLICE IN HUNGARY ,IT WAS ALWAYS THE LOCAL POLICE THAT COLLABORATED WITH THE NAZIS AND ROUNDED UP THE “UNDESIRABLES” FOR THIER NEW MASTERS!!! SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE…..IN MY GRANDFATHERS DAY, WE WHERE IN HOLLAND SHOOTING DUTCH POLICE AND OTHER FASCISTS ,WE GOT MEDALS FOR IT… AND WE ALL STILL THANK THEM TODAY FOR DOING IT!!
ACTUALLY I HAVE MATES SHOOTING POLICE TODAY AND GETTING MEDALS FOR …BUT THATS IN AFGHANISTAN AND WE DO NOT THANK THEM FOR IT!
….BUT IF THEY NEED A PLACE TO STAY IN AMSTERDAM TO CONTINUE THIER “OCCUPATION” ,SO TO SPEAK, OF SHOOTING LOCAL POLICE,I THINK I CAN HELP 😉
BUT MAYBE IF WE HAD DIRECT DEMOCRACY IN EUROPE WE COULD OF ALL VOTED AGAINST THE BAILOUT AND WE WOULD NOT HAVE TO DEMONSTRATE IN THE STREET IN THE FIRST PLACE!
MAYBE IF THE EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS WHERE JAILING THE GUILTY AND HELPING THE VICTIMS ,INSTEAD OF HELPING THE GULTY AND VICTIMISING THE VICTIMS WE WOULD NOT BE DEMONSTRATING
A LESSON FOR POLICE , GOVERNMENT AND THE PEOPLE IS TO BE FOUND IN ICELAND.
WHERE CORRUPT OFFICIALS ARE HOUNDED AND ARRESTED AND THE POLICE DO NOT BEAT UP THE LOCALS!!!
WE ALL HAVE A LOT TO LEARN FROM ICELAND
The Protest Movement. Financial Fraud in Iceland
by Rady Ananda
As proceedings begin against Iceland’s former Prime Minister, Geir Haarde, for the banking crisis of 2008, at least two thousand Icelanders took to the streets in two days of protest this weekend. Iceland joins over a dozen other nations protesting economic measures taken out on the public while banks and large corporations receive bailouts. Class war is on, and it’s gone global.
Mass protests were also held in Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Germany, Italy, France, Slovenia, Lithuania, Latvia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Serbia, Romania, Poland, and the U.S., according to reports from several sources. Folks around the world reject corrupt banking practices and bailouts, while social services are cut and tens of millions have been forced into joblessness and homelessness.
Dori Sigurdsson, an Icelandic blogger, reports that when Parliament returned from recess on October 1st, they were met by a loud, angry crowd who tossed eggs, bread, dairy products and keys at them. People slept outside the Parliament building the night before its return session. He’s posted videos and several images.
Dori notes, “because of the lack of help from the Goverment for the public, many are now losing their houses and cars.” In a nation of only 317,000, 12 percent (or 40,000) have lost or are about to lose their homes, he says. Icelanders condemn the injustice of large companies and their CEOs having had their debts forgiven by government, while theirs are not.
Three other officials were charged with “misconduct in the lead up to, during and following the banking crisis,” reports Ice News. Parliament voted to prosecute only Haarde for negligence, under a 100-year-old law that has never before been used.
Icelanders are also angry that only the former PM is being charged. One commenter on the Ice News article noted, “Is this not a total betrayal of the people?” And criminal, to reasonable minds.
AT LEAST THE ICELANDICS ARRESTED THIER PRIME MINISTER ,ITS MORE THAN THE REST OF EUROPE PUT TOGETHER
Eggs hit Prime Minister, Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir, who rode into power as Iceland’s most beloved political leader with a 75% approval rating.
JUST BEEN FOOLED AGAIN?
She was installed in January 2009 after a coalition of Social Democrats and Left-Greens formed to replace the Independence Party-led coalition government, headed by Haarde, which was terminated. Should other nations terminate their corrupt governments?
The Guardian notes widespread protest across Europe “amid growing fury at austerity measures being imposed… Disruption in more than a dozen countries this week included a national strike in Spain and a cement truck driven into the Irish parliament’s gates.” Press TV also reported on protests planned in several nations last week. (See cement truck video here.)
Even in the US, thousands recently protested in Washington, D.C. for jobs instead of wars.ANSWER Coalition’s Brian Becker told reporters that the US spends a billion dollars every two days for its military invasions. That’s much lower than the trillion dollars a year that Robert Higgs of the Independent Institute calculates. We do know that Congress spends 58 percent of its discretionary budget on the military.
Many economists note that unemployment in the US is two to three times higher than what the Labor Dept. reports. In July, economists put the number at 28 percent, compared to the 9.5 percent rate reported by the feds. For September, the Christian Science Monitor showed unemployment at 16.7 percent, while the feds reported 9.6 percent.
In the US where 95% of the public rejected both Wall Street bailouts (under Bush and under Obama), we learned that banksters then rewarded themselves with million dollar bonuses. The boldness of their depravity is sure to have its rebound effect. Is it time to terminate this government, too?
ITS TIME TO SQUAT YOUR HOUSE. DO NOT LET THE THIEVES STEAL IT!!
The Guardian also reported that a “UN agency has warned of growing social unrest because of a long ‘labour market recession’ that could last until 2015.” 2015!
Thank goodness mortgage squatters are growing in number in the US. This is even before it was discovered that “foreclosure mills” fabricated documents to seize peoples’ homes. Some of those mills do not even hold legal title, Ellen Brown reports.
In Iceland, the Guardian noted, “Birgitta Jónsdóttir, one of three MPs to join the protesters, said: ‘There is a realisation that the IMF is going to wipe out our middle classes.’” That’s true of every nation sucked into the greed of banksters, the US included.
Protesters are out again right now, Monday night, Dori told me (6 pm Eastern, 10 pm Iceland time).
“The protest is still on, and it is peaceful – but with lots of noise that can be heard in the Parliament building.”
Shattered glass and injuries at Iceland parliament protests
Over 30 windows were broken during protests at the Icelandic parliament building, the Althingi, last night. Three police officers and one protester were also injured.
The 8,000-strong protesters also showered the building in paint and food colouring and one window was smashed at the neighbouring Domkirkjan .
Police and protesters never clashed directly and the crowds were held back effectively by fences erected earlier in the day. A large bonfire was lit in the middle of Austurvollur Square (outside parliament) and police described the vast majority of the protesters as peaceful. Nobody was arrested despite the high level of vandalism.
Several MPs’ cars were pelted as they drove away after the meeting of parliament ended around midnight; none more so than the Minister of Finance’s car.
The protesters were protesting various things; but mostly the perceived lack of promised government help to indebted householders. Many were also there to call for new elections.
PEOPLE DO YOU LIKE BEING DICTATED TOO BY PAEDOPHILES AND THIER PROTECTORS?!?!
AND POLICED BY THUGS AND MURDERERS?
IT IS THE GOVERNMENT THAT IS DISPENCABLE ,NOT THE PEOPLE!!
SOCIETY CAN AND DOES FUNCTION WITHOUT GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT CANNOT FUNCTION WITHOUT SOCIETY, AS IT NEEDS TO LEECH OF THE PEOPLE TO SURVIVE. IT WILL THEN OFFER UNREAL DREAMS AND UNTRUE NIGHTMARES TO FOOL AND SCARE YOU INTO BELIEVING WE NEED THEM.
