Iceland was one of the first countries that was hit real hard from the economic crisis. To evaluate the situation on the island now, a couple of years after the economic brakedown, I went to Reykjavik to have a chat with a couple of representatives of the alterglobalisation movement Attac, which was startet in Iceland after the crisis. I may be neither Jon Stewart nor Freddie Skavlan, but the discussions were interesting nevertheless.
The conversation moves through various themes. The economic situation in Iceland after the Economic crisis, the political situation, the relationship to the European Union, the activities of Attac Iceland, the Kafkaesque process against the so-called "Reykjavik nine" demonstrators, and the Icesave-deal.
