On Tuesday 19th July 2005.a group of approximately 20 of us hiked to the main junction approaching the site.

This was a first in Icelandic history:the police had to make up a word for “lock-on�. Thirteen of us were “detained�, apparently “arrested�, and later released without charge....with the warning that Impregilo were “looking at this incident with grave eyes� and were likely to make a civil case. Impregilo have since changed their mind. For a change, the media did report that the protesters were “friendly�!
