Iceland - Elderly citizens demonstrate - September 30, 2016

Older people in Iceland are suffering shortages and have problems to make end meet. The elderly citizens’ association Grái herinn organised a demonstration in protest against cutbacks in income and what they call ‘a lack of interest among the political class in issues concerning them’. A statement from Grái herinn indicates that wages for older people need urgently to be raised and welfare cutbacks scrapped.
