Cairn tugs drag icebergs out of the way of its Arctic drilling rig
A lot of people on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere have been asking us a lot of questions about the interdict (injunction) - most of which we can't answer; we're gagged from saying anything that might be interpreted as asking others to do certain things on our behalf. We're so gagged that we probably can't even tell you what those certain things might be, in case that's seen as suggesting you do them.
So, in the public interest, we've decided to publish the full interdict (pdf). Feel free to download it, share it and discuss it; we'd be interested to hear your thoughts (although obviously we may not be able to reply).
its latest move to cover up the truth about its Arctic drilling,
Cairn Energy has obtained an extraordinary, wide-ranging legal
interdict (injunction) against us, gagging us from posting Tweets and Facebook
updates containing photos of yesterday's
occupation of their Edinburgh headquarters.

We assembled at about 8am this morning near to Cairn Energy's offices in Edinburgh. It was a strange gaggle of people in suits and an army of polar bears. Such a gathering was going to attract attention so we couldn't hang about - we crossed Festival Square which was starting to get busy with people heading for work and straight through the doors of Cairn's office building.

In a small boat launched from the Greenpeace ship Esperanza Kumi Naidoo, the Executive Director of Greenpeace International crossed into an exclusion zone and scaled a controversial Arctic oil rig 120km off the coast of Greenland.
