Hundreds Protest in Front of Iceland’s Parliament

This is the fifth Saturday in a row that protestors have gathered on the square. Around 700 people attended the protest meeting last Saturday, Morgunbladid reports.

Protestors demand a correction of the principal of mortgages and the abolishment of indexation. Additionally, the organizations call for a national government (made up of all political parties) to rule the country.
