Icelandic Democracy Advocate to visit NZ
Hordur Torfason is an Icelandic democracy activist who initiated that country's recent Peaceful revolution. Now he's coming to NZ to remind us how democracy can really work
We are coordinating a nationwide tour by Hordur Torfason - an Icelandic activist who initiated the recent 'cutlery revolution' in that country: This resulted in:
- Resignation of the whole government.
- Nationalization of the bank.
- Referendum so that the people can make economic decisions.
- Incarcerating the responsible parties.
- Rewriting of the constitution by its people via Twitter and Facebook etc
All of this was accomplished Peacefully.
Interestingly the Icelandic economy is now doing well and the IMF and other heavyweight economists agree that Iceland did the right thing http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/08/top-economists-iceland-did-it-right-everyone-else-is-doing-it-wrong.html
Hordur Torfason is currently lecturing on meta modern democracy in Europe. The time is right for New Zealanders to hear what he has to say.
He will be visiting here in March 2013 and we are raising funds for this in the most democratic way – through www.PledgeMe.co.nz/691
People give their credit card details and only if we reach our target, the funds are deducted. This way, all New Zealanders can see this inspiring man talk for free. Dates currently confirmed include Auckland - March 18th & 19th, Wellington 20th & 21st, Nelson 24th followed by Christchurch 25th and 26th and Dunedin 27th and 28th. Please help us spread the word.
