Description

Gudmundur Pall Olafsson, an Icelandic researcher, has succeeded in bringing a governmental attempt to dam wilderness areas for hydroelectric power to the public's attention. A personal symbolic gesture of planting a half-mast flag in the middle of an endangered area turned into a media symbol. The government is still trying to bring heavy industry into the area despite environmental risks.
