President Obama Urged to Cancel Arctic Drilling Plans as Standoff With Shell Vessel Ends

Greenpeace

PORTLAND, Ore. - The 26 Greenpeace USA activists that formed the 40-hour blockade stopping Shell’s icebreaker from leaving port have now come down from the St. Johns Bridge in Portland, Oregon.

The climbers caused Shell’s Fennica icebreaker to turn around and return to port earlier this morning after a dramatic standoff which was reported on live TV and around the world.
