22 year old actress Q'orianka Kilcher (right), occupies the anchor chain of the "Clipper Hope" cargo ship with 27 year old Brazilian activist Leonor Cristina Silva Souza (left). They hold a banner reading "Amazon Crime." Activists are preventing the departure of the ship from the Amazon to the USA, where its cargo of pig iron will be used to make steel for the US car industry. Greenpeace is taking action to expose serious crimes in the production of Brazilian pig iron (an intermediate product in the steelmaking process) including slave labour, deforestation and the invasion of indigenous lands.05/21/2012
