It's in our hands
Iceland's coalition government collapsed on Monday after an unprecedented wave of public dissent, plunging the island nation into political turmoil as it seeks to rebuild an economy shattered by the global financial crisis.
Clattering pans and crockery with kitchen utensils, thousands of Icelanders have joined noisy protests against the government's handling of the economy. The cacophony of kitchenware has led commentators to describe the protests as the "Saucepan Revolution."
Rallies have been held each Saturday since October. Though largely peaceful, the protests have seen Reykjavik's tiny parliament building doused in paint and eggs hurled at Haarde's limousine. Last Thursday, police used tear gas to quell a protest for the first time since 1949.
Of course, Iceland is very small and Reykjavik is close to everything and everyone.
And eggs? That's just wrong.
Why not shoes?
Even though the United States is very large, and the Village is very far away.
