FRJÁLS ÞJÓÐ (Free Nation) was a weekly newspaper published in Reykjavík, Iceland from 1952 to 1967. Its policy was to protest against increasing American influence in Icelandic daily life. It was opposed to Icelandic membership of NATO and to American bases on Icelandic soil in peacetime. It protested that American soldiers could wander around Iceland without being monitored, and also protested that American base television programs were visible to the Icelandic general public.
