A demonstration was held for the second day in a row outside the Central Bank of Iceland in downtown Reykjavík this morning. Protestors demanded the immediate resignation of bank governors Eiríkur Gudnason and Davíd Oddsson.

The protests are organized by the Voices of the People movement with musician Hördur Torfason in the lead, who told mbl.is that people will show up outside the Central Bank every morning until their demands are met.
Torfason also encourages people to attend parliamentary sessions at Althingi to follow discussions on the Central Bank bill.
Yesterday, protestors brought pots and pans with them, as during the series of protests on Austurvöllur parliamentary square, and tried to prevent Oddsson and Gudnason from going to work.
The third Central Bank governor, Ingimundur Fridriksson, has complied with Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir’s request and announced his resignation.
