Activists Board Shell Drillship in NZ

Image | July 17, 2012

Greenpeace New Zealand activists stop a Shell-contracted drillship from departing the port of Taranaki for the remote Arctic, where its exploratory oil drilling programme threatens to devastate the Alaskan coastline. Six Greenpeace New Zealand activists, along with Lawless, famous for her roles in 'Xena: Warrior Princess' and 'Spartacus', have boarded the vessel, scaled its 53 metre drilling derrick and are hanging banners from its summit, reading 'Stop Shell' and '#SaveTheArctic'. They are equipped with survival gear and enough supplies to last for several days.02/24/2012
