It is no surprise that we feel separate from one another, this is exactly how the system has been held in place for so long. We are made to feel separated by the mainstream media and entertainment. But the truth is that were are interconnected and many people are expanding their thoughts and behaviours . We are starting to recognise our own power – the same power that each of us has. When we look at events in our recent history there are actually plenty of examples of people working together, acting in unity for the greater good. These can be seen as indicators of the shift in consciousness in action.
In 2011, Time Magazine named ‘Protestors’ as the person on the year.
“Massive, effective street protest” was a Global oxymoron , until – suddenly, shockingly – it became the defining trope of our time And the protestor once again became a maker of history.
While we are not suggesting that you take to the streets right now, it is important to notice the changes that have been brought about in recent years by peaceful protests. In Greece, Spain, Iceland, Turkey, Egypt, America, Canada, Russia – and many more, people are unifying to bring awareness to the issues that matter to them – and they are being noticed. These protests are clear signs that the population of these countries are dissatisfied and starting to demand change.
Iceland’s Financial System
A particular group of protests worthy of note are those that took place in Iceland from October 2008to January 2009. The three main Icelandic banks were privatised in 2000. The banking system had been robust and virtually self sufficient to this point, but over the next five years, the three banks borrowed $120 billion, for unneccesary and lavish investments! More than 10x the value of Iceland’s economy. When the Global Economy took a downtown, the banks collapsed in the space of a week, taking people’s life savings with them.
Furious residents took to the streets and protested until they forced a change, and their governments resigned. Since then the economy in Iceland has improved, with the deficit almost eliminated, and unemployment at a low. They united and came together in a peaceful social action to raise awareness and demand change.
