Iceland Revolution Project - Interview with Birgitta Jónsdóttir

Birgitta Jónsdóttir is a member of parliament of Althing, the Icelandic parliament, formerly representing the Citizens' Movement, but now representing The Movement. She was elected to the Icelandic parliament in April 2009 on behalf of a movement aiming for democratic reform..

Democracy and Class Struggle salutes the people of Iceland  who for second time in two years have voted in a referendum against the repayment of Icelandic banks' supposed debt to Britain and the Netherlands.

In response, the British and Dutch governments are preparing to sue the Republic of Iceland for the sum of 4 billion euros in an effort to win back money lost by their own citizens in failed Icelandic banks during the financial crash of 2008. But having failed in the court of public opinion, Britain and the Netherlands now are beginning legal proceedings against the Icelandic Government.

We  must support the People of Iceland who have refused to have the debts of their speculators socialised - Red Salute for Icelandic People.
