The man, Friðrik Helgason, told visir.is that he wanted to protest the injustices suffered by honest people. Fridrik demanded that the government uphold their election promise of reducing household debt.

“We have paid our loans for many years and now they are walking away with everything, our house, land and horses,” he said.
