Indefense to Meet British Parliament

Published March 16, 2009

The activist social networking group Indefense is to meet with the
British government on Tuesday to submit a petition from the Icelandic
people.
The petition, some 83,000 names strong, voices an objection to British PM Gordon Brown’s use of an anti-terrorist law to freeze Icelandic assets in the UK. RÚV reports that a 15-person group from Indefense will travel to the UK with the petition, meet various British MPs, ministers and officials, and formally submit the petition to the British parliament on Tuesday. The group says that part of their reason for the trip is to get an answer as to why an anti-terrorist law was used in response to an economic crisis.
