Youth Against Heavy Industry invade offices of Icelandic National Power Compnay

Landsvirkjun action

10.3.06
The Reykjavík offices of the much loathed Landsvirkjun, the Icelandic National Power Company, were gatecrashed yesterday by over thirty angry young people who banged drums, shouted and blew whistles in defiance against Landsvirkjun, heavy industry and ecocidal dams in the Icelandic highlands.

Some held a banner with the by now famous subversion of the company name: ILLVIRKJUN (Evil energy.)

Although Landsvirkjun officials called the cops the cops restrained themselves and did not repeat last week's much criticised violence against the youths. The Killers of Nature just had to bear the bad vibes.

A Landsvirkjun PR man complained there was no interest from the group of protesters to enter into dialogue with him. Seems like he and his bosses need a few more visits like this to get the point that by now it's too late for any "friendly" dialogue.

Landsvirkjun's crimes against Europe's last great pristine wilderness and against 'democracy' will not be forgiven by coming generations.

It was the immediate investigation and utter annihilation of Landsvirkjun as a company that was the chief demand of the day.
