Did you know: Icelanders overthrew their government, jailed their bankers, and are rewriting their constitution?

Did you know that Icelanders made their whole government resign? Did you know that they jailed the bankers responsible for the crisis? Did you know that the constitution of Iceland was scrapped and is being rewritten by private citizens; using a crowd-sourcing technique via social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter?

It’s just astounding how little attention has been given to the Icelandic revolution. The people of this island country have not just managed to get out of the biggest crisis after World War 2, but have also made a real clean-up of everyone who was involved in the breakdown of their banks and economy.

The problem is that it’s good news and good news don’t sell newspapers, and this is why the mainstream media has virtually ignored almost everything that has happened there. Yes, there has been some reporting in the style of: “ Iceland manages to regain solvency again” or “Iceland back on the track”…………….but this is not what really happened there.

The people literally took their country back into their own hands and sanctioned everyone who contributed to the breakdown. And by that I mean that they managed the resignation of Iceland’s entire government, and the jailing of the bankers responsible for the economic collapse there. So you really might call it a revolution.

They made the complete opposite of other western governments, which bailed out almost all banks and corporations that were hit (or better responsible) by the crisis. This thing just repeats itself over and over; corporate-owned media won’t report on this topic, because they would have to tell the truth about what really happened and who is responsible for it.

But no, this whole disaster was transferred to the backs of millions of taxpayers who will have to pay for something they are not responsible for. Do corporations and banks show solidarity when you are unable to pay your mortgage?

No, they come and take your house and everything else you’ve got – to get ‘their’ money. This video will give you some insights of what really happened in Iceland. Make your own judgement and share this information far and wide.
