Björk will hold a press conference to introduce a pedition with a performance today, Monday 19th July at 4.00pm in the Nordic House, Reykjavik. All reporters are welcome.

In a report from Björk says:

„Within two weeks time the Icelandic Government is due to sign the contract that gives Magma Energy Sweden Ab the exclusive rights to exploit the Icelandic energy resources for the next 65 years, renewable for other 65 years!

On Tuesday 13th July a Formal Proposal was submitted to the Public Representative of the Icelandic Parliament, signed by Björk Guðmundsdóttir, Jon Thorisson (the Icelandic assistant to Eva Joly) and the writer Oddny Eir. This Proposal, concerning the sale of Iceland's natural resources to the company Magma Energy, aims to initiate an open discussion and encourage reconsideration of this sale, ensuring that the interests of the public are being protected and that clarification is achieved on all aspects of this decisive case concerning the future of Iceland.

In addition to the Proposal, Björk Guðmundsdóttir, Jon Thorisson and Oddny Eir have also put forward several questions they feel must be asked by the government, by the parliament and by the public before this business exchange can continue.“
