Constitutional protest in Reykajvik ,Iceland today - photos and video

Today was the protest meeting in downtown Reykjavik. People are protesting that the goverment is not going to respect the National Referendum last year about accepting a new Constitution for Iceland .
The new Constitution gives the public more power to put matters to a national referendum and more.
Looks like that the political system in Iceland do not like to give power to the people of Iceland

Protest in Reykjavik, Iceland ,today ,video and photos

Today there was a protest in Reykjavik.
People where protesting that the parliament has decided not to follow the national referendum ,about the new constitution.
According to the news here in Iceland , parliament has decided not to change the constitution, even though the people of Iceland had voted in a national referendum to have a new constitution.
You can see here on my video and photos from the protest meeting and another will be held next saturday .

Iceland parliament does not listen to the people of Iceland

Today there is a planed protest meeting in fron of the Parliament building in Reykjavik,Iceland.
The new constitution that was was accepted in a national referendum and was to be in parliament this year .
Parliament would then discuss it and make the new constituion leagal for Iceland.
But now parliament has decided to take the constituion and not discuss it and not vote on it this year.
Even though a national referendum ,with a big majority ,had decided to accept a new constituion.
Looks like that members of parliament are quick to forget what happened here in 2008.

Many members of parliament ,mainly the members to the right in politics, do not like the new constotuion ,because it gives the public limited powers to control what the parliament is doing.
In the new constitution, the public can ,if the like or dont like some of the laws that the parliament are making, the public can demand a national referendum.
Birgitta Jónsdóttir , member of parliament and one of the leaders of the protests in 2008 , is not happy and says that the parliament is going to ignore the national referndum and not listen to the people of Iceland .
Why have a national referendum , when you wont follow the results ?
