Protest in Iceland - 8 arrested june 15 2009

Today there was the dayli protest against the discussion on parliement about the Icesave saving accounts in Europe.
The goverment is about to put inot law,that the goverment will pay the debt,that the Banks made.
That means ,in the amount of 650 billion kronas.
People belive that ,if it will be payed by the goverment ,then taxes will have to rise,and the welfare system in Iceland will go down.

The protest started peacefully,but then a few protesters sat down on the street in front of the parliement .
That was not acceptable by the police,and the protesters did not obey the police,so 8 where arrested.
