INTERNATIONAL DAYS OF ACTION AGAINST THE ICELANDIC STATE AND ALCOA
26 Aug 2006 12:18 GMT
The Icelandic highlands are the last great expanse of true wilderness left in Western Europe. Now the country's hydroelectric potential has been targeted by multinational corporations, who intend to establish large-scale heavy industry in these hitherto pristine hinterlands. These multinational vandals - willingly helped by the Icelandic government - are about to produce an environmental catastrophe of unprecedented proportions.
IMPORTANT ADDITION OF DATES FOR DAYS OF ACTION!
1 AND 15 SEPTEMBER - INTERNATIONAL DAYS OF ACTION AGAINST THE ICELANDIC STATE AND ALCOA
No matter the environmental and social cost, no matter the ever increasing protests from the Icelandic and international communities and the intensifying warnings fom the scientific sector, the Icelandic government is hellbent on going ahead with its plan to inundate the projected Hálslón reservoir at Kárahnjúkar between 15-30 September.
They must be stopped!
