"This chapter has ended, but the story of the battle to save the Arctic has just begun. Seven of us climbed up that drillship to stop Arctic drilling, but 133,000 of us came down. We did what we came to do. Together we sent a clear message to Shell that has echoed across the globe - it's time to draw a line in the ice and say: enough."
-- Actress Lucy Lawless after she was arrested with five other Greenpeace activists for "occupying" an Artic bound oil drilling ship. Shell is the first major international oil company to make exploitation of the Arctic a major focus. Freezing temperatures, extreme weather conditions and a highly remote location make an Arctic oil spill virtually impossible to contain and clean up. Over 135,000 activists e-mailed Shell executives to support the occupation and demand they leave the Arctic.
