Aluminum manufacturer Alcan, which hopes to enlarge its smelter near Hafnarfjördur in southwest Iceland, sent a recently released DVD to all homes in the town this week.
The combination of CD and DVD features a concert with Iceland’s king of pop Björgvin Halldórsson, who grew up in Hafnarfjördur, and the Synphony Orchestra of Iceland, as Morgunbladid reports.
A letter from Rannveig Rist, CEO of Alcan in Iceland, was sent along with the DVD, explaining that the gift was in relation with the 40th anniversary of the smelter near Hafnarfjördur.
Earlier this year, Alcan invited inhabitants of Hafnarfjördur to go to the concert with Björgvin Halldórsson and the Symphony Orchestra, but not all could attend.
The letter further said that Alcan intends to introduce its operations to the citizens of Hafnarfjördur in the next few months, before the vote about its enlargement takes place.
On Thursday, a group of citizens in Hafnarfjördur who campaign against the enlargement of the smelter returned the DVDs and encouraged others to do the same on their website.
