'Clipper Hope' Anchor Occupation in Brazil

22 year old actress Q'orianka Kilcher climbs from a makeshift platform on the anchor chain of the "Clipper Hope" cargo ship and returns to the Greenpeace ship "Rainbow Warrior" near the port of São Luis do Maranhão, Brazil. The seven day protest is currently stopping the ship from loading pig iron which is a key ingredient in the steel making process. Greenpeace research has linked this commodity to rainforest destruction, slave labor and the invasion of indigenous land. The steel is eventually bought by major car companies including Ford, GM, BMW and Mercedes.05/21/2012
