ICELAND: When is it enough? When is the rubber band stretched too far?

REYKJAVIK RIOTS (2010) The global economical crisis hit hard on Iceland in 2007-2008. The conditions were very difficult for the Icelandic people and the victims. They lost their houses, their cars and their livelihood. On Octobre 4th 2010, thousands of protesters gathered on a national symbolic square in front of the Icelandic parliament in Reykjavik. This was the first day of the new Icelandic Parliament. A frontline protesters engaged in confrontation with the police, who formed a protective lineup guarding the building. The protesters threw their keys, eggs, tomatoes, potatoes and red paint against the politicians and the building. A deafening wall of sound was made of empty barrels, pots and pans, fire alarms, vuvuzelas and drums in protest against the new government.
