Breaking: Greenpeace Nordic intercepts Shell ship (again)

Posted by JulietteH — 3 May 2012 at 7:29am - Comments

Greenpeace Nordic activists have intercepted and boarded a Shell-contracted icebreaker, the Nordica, at open sea to continue the protest against Shell's destructive plans to start drilling in the Arctic. Just two days ago, dozens of activists occupied that same ship in Helsinki, before it left harbour.

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.

Clearly, all this is purely from a business perspective. Shell claim to show some kind of environmental interest, some like that sort of thing. It's 100% advertising.

However, if some senior members of Greenpeace could meet with some of Shell's directors/Executive etc, who knows what results could be achieved?

The government agencies, meanwhile, seem to be keen to let the dead ship beach on Gujarat's coast for dismantling.
