When Icelanders Protest… || Pt. 1

000031Icelanders have been out protesting in front of the Alþingi quite a bit lately in regard to decisions on whether the nation should join the EU. When Icelanders protest,  they sometimes express their displeasure with bananas. It’s their way of saying that this current government is acting like a “banana republic.”
