So, in keeping with this ongoing theme of Global Awakening, I wanted to do a segment in which we’d highlight films and videos available for viewing online that work towards that goal. Everything you’ll find here is highly-recommended by Vibin’ Higher, whether for your own research, or to pass on to those that you think might be interested.
In this installment, we’re featuring a documentary that takes a look at what’s been happening over in Iceland, with their “Pots and Pans Revolution.” This topic is tremendously underreported, especially by mainstream media (who has remained more or less silent on it). Delve into the Icelandic Revolution for yourself below!
“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.”
