No news from Iceland… why?

How come we hear everything that happens in Egypt but no news about what’s happening in Iceland:

In Iceland, the people has made the government resign, the primary banks have been nationalized, it was decided to not pay the debt that these created with Great Britain and Holland due to their bad financial politics and a public assembly has been created to rewrite the constitution.

And all of this in a peaceful way.
A whole revolution against the powers that have created the current global crisis. This is why there hasn’t been any publicity during the last two years: What would happen if the rest of the EU citizens took this as an example? What would happen if the US citizens took this as an example.

This is a summary of the facts:

2008. The main bank of the country is nationalized.
The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market stops.
The country is in bankruptcy

2008. The citizens protest in front of parliament and manage to get new elections that make the resignation of the prime minister and his whole government.
The country is in bad economic situation.
A law proposes paying back the debt to Great Britain and Holland through the payment of 3,500 million euros, which will be paid by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with a 5.5% interest.

2010. The people go out in the streets and demand a referendum. In January 2010 the president denies the approval and announces a popular meeting.
In March the referendum and the denial of payment is voted in by 93%. Meanwhile the government has initiated an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis, and many high level executives and bankers are arrested. The Interpol dictates an order that make all the implicated parties leave the country.

In this crisis an assembly is elected to rewrite a new Constitution which can include the lessons learned from this, and which will substitute the current one (a copy of the Danish Constitution).
25 citizens are chosen, with no political affiliation, out of the 522 candidates. For candidacy all that was needed was to be an adult and have the support of 30 people. The constitutional assembly starts in February of 2011 to present the ‘carta magna’ from the recommendations given by the different assemblies happening throughout the country. It must be approved by the current Parliament and by the one constituted through the next legislative elections.

So in summary of the Icelandic revolution:

-resignation of the whole government
-nationalization of the bank.
-referendum so that the people can decide over the economic decisions.
-incarcerating the responsible parties
-rewriting of the constitution by its people

Have we been informed of this through the media?
Has any political program in radio or TV commented on this?

The Icelandic people have been able to show that there is a way to beat the system and has given a democracy lesson to the world — with Joe Smith and Mike Louden.

First of Two Small Compositions 2012 ( work in progress)

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

This soundtrack constructed in GaragBand is a fragment of a piece for piano and string orchestra.

I have been working on and developing Midi/Audio wave production of sound tracks in composition.

I am indebted to “LeadingTone” at tumblr for a source of music theory and further links to ‘scored” videos on YouTube that have enabled me to unlock the lessons I was given as a boy when I was Junior Organ Scholar at Bristol Cathedral.

I apologise for grabbing the Costa Gardia images but the fim also features the opening credit identity for 18ep Productions and includes …” the man in the window image from the Summer riots of 2011 as well as an out-take from the definitive 1922 film “The Man with a Camera”, a film that contains most of the effects and techniques that have featured in film making for nearly 100 years.

The “take a picture” image was shot in Barcelona in 2009 and was graffitti on the stair wall leading to the Westend of the Sagrada Familia.
I found it ironic that any ‘express tourists’ would take home a memory not only of an amazing edifice but the annonymous stamp of a social comment from the heart of Catalonian Spain.

I have also been working to establish the OKfuse ID in terms of intro and closing credits for my work. Clearly the two elements that are emerging from 2011 are the “man in the window” and “take a picture” images.

As all authorities and governments are finding out often to their cost and discomfort, everyone has a camera in their pocket with the facility to produce both still moving image. In some senses, it is proving to be the greatest liberating phenomena for the ‘ordinary’ persons of the world since the invention of the printing press permitted people to read and inform themselves.

Look out for more

{try it with headhones and full screen}

The Real Legacy of Thatcher is:

the betrayal of the mining community “profit before people” :
the callous disregard for human life & suffering :
the failure to honour the ” inner city pledge” :
the militrisation of the police force :
creation of a commercial society based on greed :
the de-skilling of the working classes :
the annihilation of UK industrial infrastructure :
and a broken and divided country ….

Scenes from Manchester 2011 … showing police chasing and beating inner city residents. A reaction to the rioting and looting in protest at the financial cuts crisis.

Significantly the police have always been quasi military arm of the UK government*. More significantly people are protesting world wide at the greed and corruption of Governments and Financial institutions.

This is an ongoing story … so more anon….

*1 Home Secretary Churchill ordered the army with the police into Liverpool in 1911 resulting in shootings and deaths of innocent by-standers, though with all his words he did not have the convenience of the spinner’s tag “collateral damage” … rather, he hushed up courts martial of a soldier who refused to shoot on the public thereby heading off a military execution for dessertion and burying the news under on the grounds of national security.

2 Thatcher engineered the Miners’ strike in the 80’s and confronted them with mounted police violence and at the poll tax riots later towards the end of her period of office.

3 The 2011 coalition government imported thousands of police into London in the face of protests at the financial cuts arising out of the scandalous gambling that banks and financial institutions wrought with nation’s economies world wide.

… and so ……

Visual essay on the financial crisis 2011: as I post this, Greek and Italian members of the EEC are embroiled in the after shock of the international scandal wrought by the greed of the bankers and speculators of the world money market casino.

People of the wold Occupy the streets in protest to be beaten into submission by the police forces of the Governments who themselves, mired in corruption, are unable to control the International Bankers and prevent them from stealing a nation’s wealth for themselves.
