From the beginning of our devastating financial crisis in autumn of 2008 Icelanders have regularly marched down to the square in front of Althingi, the Icelandic Parliament, to protest.  They gather in numbers to protest decisions and actions of the Icelandic government.  Early on these protests reflected massive disappointment and anger.  Quite understandably as the Icelandic economy had collapsed and three of the largest banks were bankrupt. In recent times the protests have been peaceful and probably sophisticated.
