Yesterday there was a demonstration in front of the Parliament building, to protest a parliamentary proposal to withdraw Iceland’s application for EU membership. Not that there is a national majority for membership, but the people want to see what the EU has to offer before they make up their minds on whether or not they want to join. The government is trying to take away that choice, or at least delay it for several years.
Here are some snaps from the demonstration:
The demonstration was peaceful, like most demonstration in Iceland tend to be.
It continues today.
