Iceland, People Building a Revolution

Synopsis

In Iceland, the first European country to wake up to an economic crash, people became aware that they could and should intervene in society and started demanding more democratic participation.
The payment of bank debts by citizens went to referendum. The government was forced to create a Council to write a new constitution: a citizens’ group – without politicians, lawyers or university professors – who opened the discussion process to everybody and managed to approve by consensus a draft proposal.

In Iceland, many citizens are now organized in associations and have substantial proposals for a society where everyone can participate.

Let’s meet the Icelanders that the media refuse to talk about.

This documentary was idealized, conceived and produced by Miguel Marques, Yolanda Rienderhoff,  Pedro Bruno Carreira and LIGHTS ON(E). We had no sponsors whatsoever.

  2. Unbelievable. I really see so much promise in what is happening in Iceland. I have faith in the future. The Icelandics are creating the alternative, they are creating the future and nobody can stop them! GO ICELAND!!!

  3. Awsome ansd inspiring. It feels so good to listen to the voice of sanity, Such hope for the future such as I haven’t heard for so many years in America. America is so corrupt in every way, there are so many hidden government criminal organizations it is hard to keep up with them all.

  13. Congratulations on a new constitution! I wish a few Icelanders would come to Canada and advise the Canadian parliamentarians on how to revise or make a new constitution. And I sincerely hope Icelanders will keep vigilant because there are always those who want to take away personal freedom.
