No arctic oil!

In Rotterdam over the weekend, 80 of our activists confronted a tanker, that was carrying the same oil the Arctic 30 protested against. Activists that were also on board the Rainbow Warrior III and in inflatable boats attempted to stop a Gazprom tanker from docking at Rotterdam harbour.

Among them are Arctic 30 members Faiza, Sini, Phil, Iain, Gizem, Pete and Anne Mie. Faiza said: "30 of us went to prison for shining a light on this dangerous Arctic oil, and we refuse to be intimidated. This tanker is the first sign of a reckless new push to exploit the Arctic, a place of incredible beauty which is melting before our eyes."

Tell Shell and Gazprom to stop Arctic drilling.

Greenpeace activists on paragliders protest against the first shipment of Arctic oil in the harbour of Rotterdam. The Russian oil tanker Mikhail Ulyanov is transporting oil from the Gazprom drilling platform Prirazlomnaya to Rotterdam harbour. The banner reads "No arctic oil". The tanker is carrying the world's first Arctic oil, the very same oil that the Arctic 30 protested against last year. The oil has been purchased by French oil company, Total.
