A number of heavy industry corporations including RioTinto and ALCOA are invading vast areas of uninhabited wilderness in Iceland for new smelters, refineries and power plants. Come and visit some of the most stunning places of beauty on earth, and help protect them with direct action.

If they continue, every glacial river in the country will be dammed, vast areas will be destroyed by flooding and large scale geothermal drilling.
