Activists Board Shell Drillship in New Zealand

Actor Lucy Lawless and Greenpeace New Zealand activists on the second day of their protest to stop a Shell-contracted drillship from departing Port Taranaki for the remote Arctic, where its exploratory oil drilling programme threatens to devastate Alaska's coastline. The activists deploy a new banner which reads '#SaveTheArctic'. Six Greenpeace New Zealand activists, along with Lawless, famous for her roles in 'Xena: Warrior Princess' and 'Spartacus', boarded the vessel and scaled its 53-metre drilling derrick more than 24 hours ago. Yesterday they hung a banner from its highest point, which read 'Stop Shell'. The activists are equipped with survival gear, and enough supplies to last for several days.02/25/2012
