A US judge in Anchorage has slapped a massive accumulating fine on Greenpeace of $2500 per hour, rising to $10,000 / hour, for every hour Greenpeace activists block Shell Oil ship MSV Fennica from leaving Portland, to sail for Alaska.
BlurBrain- Fortunately for Greenpeace the Portland police saved them a ton of money (more’s the pity) by simply cutting the ropes from which the protestors were suspended.
An even greater pity was that they didn’t just let the dumbasses fall the 60 feet or so to the water and then, “leave them what survive the fall swim for shore.” No, the dadgum fire dept. took the trouble to rig new lines before the anchors were cut giving the protestors the option of either lowering themselves voluntarily or being lowered, like it or not.
Of course, by putting on this silly demonstration, Greenpeace wasn’t only blockading the icebreaker, they were interfering with all shipping, both coming and going. More
