Protests in Reykjavik, Iceland, 08.11.2008
Icelanders protesting the government and Davíð Oddsson, head of the Icelandic central bank, following the complete meltdown of the nation’s banking and economic system.
From Dutch NOS TV:
In Reykjavik, about 6000 Icelanders have demonstrated against the consequences of the financial crisis. They threw eggs and tomatoes at the parliament building, and demanded that [Rightist] Prime Minister Haarde should quit.
The government of Iceland is in danger of bankruptcy because the three biggest Icelandic banks have collapsed. Only the IMF may save the government’s coffers. In recent months, inflation and unemployment in Iceland have gone up sharply.
In Brussels, hundreds of customers of the failed Icelandic bank Kaupthing have demonstrated for getting their savings back. They think that Belgium and Luxembourg are not doing enough for them.
