Greenpeace Nordic activists today intercepted at open sea and boarded a Shell-contracted icebreaker, the Nordica, to continue its protest against the oil majors destructive plans to start drilling in the pristine Arctic region. Just two days ago, dozens of activists had already occupied that same ship in harbor in Finland prior to its departure.

The Nordica is heading to Alaska to join its sister ship, the Fennica, to support the Kulluk and Noble Discoverer, the two drillships that are en route to the north coast of Alaska to drill five exploratory wells for Shell in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.
