22 year old actress Q'orianka Kilcher, recently appeared alongside Cuba Gooding Jr in ABC's 'Firelight', occupies the anchor chain of the "Clipper Hope" cargo ship with 27 year old Brazilian activist Leonor Cristina Silva Souza. The protest, near the port of São Luis do Maranhão, Brazil, is currently stopping the ship from leaving to load 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
