PHOTO: MATT LAWREY THE DETAILS What: Hordur Torfason on active democracy Where: Victory Community Centre When: Sunday, 6pm Cost: $10 waged, $5 unwaged Nelson woman Sian Clement is so deter- mined to get people thinking about democ- racy she has organised a series of talks up and down the country featuring an Icelandic expert on the subject. Hordur Torfason is something of a legend in his homeland after he staged a one man protest to express concern at the state of the economy in 2008. Hordur was soon joined by others and the small protest turned into a massive people power movement that led to the resignation of the government. The Icelandic banks were nationalised, senior bankers were imprisoned and the consti- tution was re-written. An entertainment publicist who has worked on everything from The World's Fastest Indian to Kiwi Flyer, Sian was so inspi- red by the changes in Iceland she contacted Hordur through Facebook and asked if he would like to come to New Zealand to talk about democracy and his experiences. Hordur accepted the invi- tation and Sian, with support from Lisa's Hummus founder Lisa Er, has organised a tour that includes a dozen talks from Auckland to Dunedin. Hordur arrived in New Zea- land last week, appeared on Radio New Zealand National with Kim Hill last Saturday and will be speaking in Nelson this Sunday. Sian is thrilled Hordur and his Italian architect husband have been able to make the trip. Social justice is something I feel really strongly about and I think greater democracy is a way to cure a lot of society's ills,'' she said. Sian hopes Hordur's visit inspires people. I see people giving up, think- ing nothing is going to change but I think they're wrong. Look at the way New Zealand stood up to apartheid and nuclear weapons. We were the first country to give women the vote,'' she said. Hondur's talk will take around 90 minutes and be fol- lowed by a question and answer session. Sian said she was huge grateful'' to everyone who had helped make his visit possible.
