F.A.N. joins “Kayaktivists” to protest arctic drillingLast Updated on 2015-05-24 02:53:20Activists from around the country, including FAN staff and many FAN advocates and partners, converged on the port of Seattle this past weekend to draw attention to climate change and the role fossil fuels play. Shell Oil has docked one of its Arctic oil drilling rigs in Seattle's port.
On Saturday, "kayaktivists" in boats, led by the canoes of several native tribes from Washington and Alaska, paddled to the rig and unfurled signs declaring opposition to Arctic drilling. Peaceful protests highlighted the role Shell plays in continuing our nation's dependence on fossil fuels that contribute to climate change and environmental disasters in fragile ecosystems like the Arctic.
On Monday, activists blocked the road leading to the terminal where Shell's rig is stored, shutting down Shell's operations for the day.
