Lucy Lawless Arrested

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/6482...l-protest-ends

Lucy Lawless and a group of Greenpeace protesters have been arrested after more than three days at the top of a Shell oil ship berthed at the Port of Taranaki.
Police had climbed the ship's tower to reach them earlier this morning.
Lawless and a group of Greenpeace activists scaled the Noble Explorer's 53-metre drilling derrick and unfurled banners in Port Taranaki at 7am on Friday.
The ship was scheduled to leave the port yesterday to drill three exploratory oil wells in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska.
"The primary concern for everybody is that no one is in danger," Greenpeace climate campaigner Steve Abel, who is at the Taranaki port, said earlier.
"While they want to stay ... they will not resist."
"They've lasted four days [they protesters went on to the boat at 7am on Friday], it's one of the longest lasting occupations in recent history in New Zealand."
"If there was an oil spill in the Arctic it would be impossible to clean up," Abel said. "This is what this is about."
Why couldn't her last name have been something like 'Topless'...

It's a more interesting arrest of a celebrity than the usual drunk driving, bar fight, or cocaine bust story one generally gets.

Pity she wasn't protesting "fracking" when she was arrested.

Meh, celebrity activists getting arrested for taking a stand is just as much a cliche as those circumstances. It's just that we can make fun of celebrities who get drunk/use drugs so those stories get more attention.

Re: Lucy Lawless Arrested

Now there's the controversy that she appeared in a Shell Oil commercial in the early 1990s.

The media can't seem to understand that people can change their views since their they were a teenager.
