Update[edit]

Eh, how about a few updates about Haarde's illness and the election call...? —Nightstallion 00:34, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Finally, after 2 hours I'm done. The article is updated and with sources, but the Haarde part is still a little blank. Jasandia (talk) 18:01, 17 October 2011 (GTM)

Pepper spray / tear gas[edit]

"with pepper spray before using the tear gas" ? According to Wikipedia, pepper spray IS a tear gas. Nicolas1981 (talk) 14:55, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

In general, Lachrymatory agents do include "pepper spray", but it is usually delivered as a liquid, not a gas. "Tear gas" is sually CS gas.--Cerejota (talk) 18:12, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Motivations[edit]

I think the article could use some more back ground information. Citing the current economic crisis is pretty vague. The economic crisis is everywhere, but riots haven't broken out in New York or London. Why has the response in Iceland been so violent? -ErinHowarth (talk) 20:08, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps it's because the kroner is now as valuable as the Confederate dollar. The U.S. dollar and the pound sterling haven't collapsed in the international market (yet). A mention of this in the introduction is probably warranted, rather than just a link to the Icelandic financial crisis. I'll see what I can do. DerekMBarnes (talk) 05:19, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, if the kroner has so little value that would indicate a great deal of suffering. Almost no one would be able to buy food or heat. I think conditions were like that in Germany before the Second World War. -ErinHowarth (talk) 03:16, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Aftermath[edit]

Strongly missing an Aftermath section to this article... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.208.147.243 (talk) 21:59, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Alllllright this needs to be finished. Please some Icelander, do so. We want to know what happend, as news in Europe doesnt talk about it. Also, redirecting the revolution under financial crisis is lame. I d stick with revolution, as from what i know, it realy happend. Thank you very much for any updates to come. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.108.154.1 (talk) 07:34, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, anything written in English on Iceland is generally rare. Would authors' comments on the success/failure of the revolution be appropriate? 144.82.213.206 (talk) 00:55, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Time to change this article... and title!![edit]

First, this REVOLUTION is ongoing. it's not something of 2009 alone. Have a look to the Iceland wiki page and you will see. It requires links to other English Wiki articles such as the Constitutional Assembly formed after the revolution, etc. But don't worry, I know something about this and I'm going to add. It should be called '2009-2011 Iceland protests' or directly 'Kitchenware Revolution', because it will be still ongoing in 2012 BUT it MUST be changed and updated. -Jasandia (talk) 16:42, 17 October 2011 (GTM)

Finally, after 2 hours I'm done. The article is updated and with sources. Still thinking in changing the title Jasandia (talk) 18:00, 17 October 2011 (GTM)
