Frosti Sigurjónsson, managing director of travel search engine Dohop, has promised to reward the loudest protestors at today’s demonstration against the Icesave agreement with ISK 1-2 million (USD 7,700-15,400, EUR 4,900-9,800).

“It will be no more than 30 minutes of hard work and the hourly pay could be much higher than any Outvasion Viking has earned—if you deliver,” Sigurjónsson writes on his website.
The demonstration begins at 12 noon today on Austurvöllur square in Reykjavík in front of the Althingi parliament, where the final vote on the government’s Icesave bill will take place, vb.is reports.
“All you have to do is show up on Austurvöllur […] and participate in making as much noise as you possibly can. Just for about 20 minutes. It will be fun! Bring your friends and the next brass band. The loudest protestors will get a grand prize.”
Sigurjónsson explained that the purpose with all the noise is to protest the fact that the Icelandic nation will have to pay for the debt of gamblers and their private banks.
“We have suffered enough already. It is in breach of all laws and ethics to make us pay. Both native and foreign specialists have pointed that out. The nation should not accept such injustice without making noise,” Sigurjónsson writes.
