Lucy Lawless joins Greenpeace action against Arctic oil drilling.

Right now Greenpeace activists are stopping a Shell drill ship from leaving the Port of Taranaki in New Zealand for the Arctic.
Climbers - including actress Lucy Lawless - have scaled the rig's drill derrick and set up camp, equipped with enough gear to last for days.

BREAKING NEWS:

Updated at 5:17 pm today by Radio New Zealand: Seven Greenpeace activists who occupied an oil exploration ship at the port of New Plymouth have been charged with burglary.
The activists, including actress Lucy Lawless, boarded the Noble Discoverer on Friday and climbed to the top of the vessel's 53-metre drilling tower.
The ship has been contracted by Shell Oil to drill three exploratory wells in the Chukchi Peninsula off the coast of Alaska and had been scheduled to leave at the weekend.
