So a demonstration has been called for this evening at 7.30 in front of the parliament buildings, when PM Jóhanna delivers her keynote speech.
I have a feeling it is going to be major.
Yesterday on Silfur Egils I heard someone say he would like to see the government step down within ten days, and for the president to salvage what he can of his reputation by appointing an extra-parliamentary government to take over.
I’m starting to think this is a realistic scenario.
A video has been making the rounds, urging people to come out this evening and protest. Against a backdrop of clips from the Kitchenware Revolution it summarizes the key points of anger in Icelandic society today, and ends with the statement: WHEREVER WE STAND, IT IS OUR CIVIC DUTY TO DEMONSTRATE, FOR THE CHILDREN, FOR THE FUTURE.
I just hope people remember to refrain from violence. Loud is OK — inflicting injury is not.
