President of Iceland Invites Protestors in for Coffee

Around ten demonstrators protested against the crisis outside Bessastadir, the presidential residence, yesterday. President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson invited the protestors in for coffee and he and his wife, Dorrit Moussiaeff, chatted with them for about 45 minutes.

There were also protests outside the offices of the Financial Supervisory Authority yesterday, visir.is reports.

Activists locked the doors with a chain and fastened a note on the door, which read, “Political measures undertaken by members of the public – The institution is closed due to the director’s incompetence.”
