Greenpeace e-mission accomplished

Greenpeace e-mission accomplished

It was direct action Greenpeace style.

Shortly after 2pm yesterday protesters converged on the 187m ship Almar in runabouts as it was carrying the first imports into Tauranga Harbour of coal for Genesis’ Huntly power station, to provide extra electricity this winter.

They managed to pull up alongside, threw grappling hooks and managed to get one protester on to the rope before being foiled by port security.

You know, I think they have a word for attempting to board another ship using grappling hooks — I think that word is piracy. Greenpeace is a pack of criminals.
