Merry Christmas and jola

It is this time when the tourist town in the northern hemisphere awake for a while during the winter, which is otherwise quiet time. Preparing for Christmas is in full swing and both Christians and people who believe in God, the Vikings hold their festivals, however, on either reason. Cristina peoble celebrate the birth of Jesus, but other, called the ASA believers, celebrating the sun comes back (the Jol), because today is the longest night. This morning we got to see the lunar eclipse and thought it a fun event. In Iceland, which multiplies the rapidly adopt the ASA's, because the religions connects humans with nature, very strong umbilical cord.
-Now europe is submerged in snow and cold we've heard, but here's just a normal winter, frost but no snow yet.

Voice of the barrel.

Protesters beat barrel in rhythm with the Congress house today. There were grandparents, fathers and mothers and children who beat the drums voices to protest low Parliamentary consensus on improving the situation in the country. The missing employment policy and people are unemployed. The missing solutions to problems of poor people. The missing solutions to debt problems of households. The missing solutions to lower the price that is too high now. It seems that the International Monetary Fund is ready to save the rich people, but everybody else bleed for a landlord. That is why people are angry and sad face.

Warm autumn

Unusually warm weather makes that nature has totally confused. Instead of flowers go to winter sleep, they are starting to bloom as the spring. Usually it's winter for us with frost and snow at this time, but now is the weather like in spring, and when the flowers do not complain, why should we then complaining about global warming?

Strong protests in Iceland.

On last Monday night attended by 8,000 citizens to protest at parliament house in the capital. The protest was directed at Congress and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Protesters say the IMF is to make this country in the smoking ashes. IMF to focus on saving the rich people but forbidden to money the state is imposed to help the general public. The government is likely to create a giant deep between rich and poor population. Drive away middle class people of the country and provide houses under its bank owners. Congress seems impossible to disobedience of orders IMF. In some conflicts occurred between protestors and police seem to be subject to the capitalist leaders. Furthermore, it was also a conflict between Protestants and Nazis who plan now to take advantage of the disintegration of the situation. Nazi flag was burned at the stake. Anarchists also took part in protests, but protests were nearly normal people who are losing their jobs and homes in the hands of capitalist clique and bank owners. Icelandic union did not participate in demonstrations, as weak and under control as the Assembly's political party. Many people believe that the revolution is coming soon.

Reindeer decreased

Reindeer in the area south of Vatnajökull has dropped down. Last year 247 animals were counted in this area, but now have found only 113 reindeer. Because have all been banned hunting of reindeer in the region.
It is not information why the reindeer dropped so much between years, because nothing in the environment of the animals as likely to be negative and the last winter rather mild. Possible reason is hunting thieves on a large scale.
