Iceland: why no news?

If somebody actually thinks we have no censorship, then could explain us why, since we have knowledge of everything about Egyptian revolution, newspapers never told us anything about what really happened in these last two years in Iceland.

In Iceland People has dismissed the Government in full, the main Banks of the Country have been nationalized, the debt contracted with Great Britain and Netherland will not be reinstituted due to the very bad management of the financial and political crisis, an Assembly has just been created to rewrite the Iceland Constitution. People did all this in a peaceful manner. This is all a R-Evolution against the Power which, even here in the European continent, has driven us to the actual crisis.

Why here we could not know all these facts in the last two years long?
What would happen if the rest of European citizens should take example from Iceland people?

This is the story of the events in short:

2008: nationalization of the main Bank of the State. The legal currency value dramatically falls down; the Iceland Stock Exchange is to be suspended. The Country is in bankrupt.

2009: as result of the continues protests in front of the Parliament anticipated elections are to be called and the Prime Minister must leave his charge with all the Government members in full. The very bad economic situation is still continuing in the Country. By a law the reinstitution of the debt to Great Britain and Netherland is decided thanks to a payment of 3.5 billon Euros. This sum must be monthly paid by all Iceland families in the following 15 years at the interest rate of 5.5%

2010: people come back again onto the streets and ask to submit the law under a popular consultation (Referendum)

In January 2010 the Iceland President refuses to promote the law and announces that a popular consultation (Referendum) will be held.

In March the Referendum is celebrated and “NO to the reinstitution of debt” wins with an astonishing 93% of the votes. By far we have to add that the new Government has started an investigation to legally establish who are the responsible persons of the crisis. It starts to be arrested various bankers and high executive officers. A halt order is emitted by Interpol so that all the implicated bankers leave the Country.

In this crisis contest an Assembly is formed with the task to rewrite a new Constitution which must held on account the lesson learnt by the development of the economic crisis. This new Constitution must substitute the old one, just a mere copy of Danish Constitution.

The sovereign People are directly called to realize all this. 25 citizens, without any kind of political affiliation, are elected between 522 which have voluntary presented their candidatures. The only requisites to be elected are to be of legal age and be supported by 30 persons at least.

The Constitutional Assembly started his works on February 2011 and will submit a “Carta Magna” project starting from the recommendations which have been receiving the consensus of all different assemblies celebrated all over the Country.
The new Constitution shall be approved either by the actual Parliament and either the new one which will be constituted after new general elections will be held.

This is the story of Iceland “R-Evolution” in short: dismissing in full of all Government members, nationalization of the banks, Referendum to allow People to say a word on the most transcendental economic decisions, to jail the main responsible persons of the crisis and rewriting of the Constitution by the same citizens.

Have you heard any talking about this on the main Europeans communication media?
Have you heard any comment and/or opinion regarding these events in any of Radio/TV programmes?
Have you seen any image on TV about all these facts? Of course no!

The Iceland People has been able to give a lesson to all European Countries, firmly opposing to the System and give a lesson of democracy to all the rest of the world.
