  • Description

    The icelandic writer HALLDOR LAXNESS, (the prize-receiver) together with the reactor (headmaster) (dekan ?) of Copenhagen university, leave house together with the mrs. LEONIE SONNING, chairman in the so called SONNING-COMMITTEE who every year give away a sum of 100.000 D. Kr. to important people. The student of the university (and lots of left-people) demonstrated outside the university, most against mrs. SONNING, because the money comes from here hiring out flats to people for a high price, and they said most of it is slum, (which is not quite correct.) The students suggested the prize- receiver HALLDOR LAXNESS, to refuse the prize, but he want it, and said that he has deserved the prize, and whold not refuse, so the demonstration was also against him, but not against Iceland which has been mentioned by Laxness. The Students turned over police car, and send stone through windows during the ceremony.
