A statement from the Icelandic anarchist collective aftaka.org on the recent collapse of the Icelandic government.
From: http://www.ainfos.ca A statement from the Icelandic anarchist collective aftaka.org on the recent collapse of the Icelandic government.: "The Icelandic Government has Collapsed... and what?---- The Icelandic Government has collapsed and some people talk about a revolution. In a way it is true. Simply ordinary people turned this government down by writing articles, holding speeches, noise demonstrations, bonfires, car horns, direct action, civil disobedience and sabotage. A nation that before had no sign of life, only citizen obedience and servility, finally stood up and said: “No thanks! No more shit.” ----- But what will follow? Have we reached the goal? Is the minority government of the Left Greens (Vinstri Gr�nir) and the Social Democrats (Samfylkingin) enough? Are we just going to be happy with new elections this spring? ---- From the beginning of the economic crisis, following the collapse and nationalization of the three major Icelandic business banks, loud voices have been heard, demanding that the government would resign and elections would take place as soon as possible."
