(Reuters) – Six older women were detained by Seattle police on Tuesday during a protest to block access to a Royal Dutch Shell drilling rig that activists believe may depart this week to resume fossil fuel exploration in the Arctic, authorities said.

The six, members of an activist group known as the Seattle Raging Grannies, were questioned and released by police after blocking railroad tracks near the Port of Seattle, police spokesman Patrick Michaud said.

About two dozen other protesters had left the port but were expected back on Wednesday, he said. read more

A group of protesters gathered at the Port of Seattle on Tuesday seeking to block workers attempting to reach a Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) drilling rig that could depart this week to resume fossil fuel exploration in the Arctic.

Over the past month, activists have staged demonstrations against the oil company’s plans to drill for oil in the Arctic, including on May 16 when hundreds of protesters in kayaks and small boats fanned out on a Seattle bay. read more

Janssen said about 25 protesters were “successfully able to block traffic this morning.” The protesters are split between an overpass near Terminal 5 and another entrance. read more

Shell has one or two rivals for the title of Planet’s Most Irresponsible Company, but it’s definitely the most ironic.

The grand irony, of course, is that, having watched the Arctic melt as global temperatures rose, Shell was first in line to drill the newly melted waters for yet more oil which would raise the temperature some more.

Reaching for Remote Hydrocarbon Riches, Shell Oil Plans to Drill In Arctic Ocean, Despite Setbacks, Protests and Lawsuits

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 09.26.28By John J. Berger, Ph. D.

Where are we heading now in our quest for more “cheap energy”? North, to the Arctic!

Despite the Obama Administration’s jawboning about the dangers of climate change and the Administration’s Climate Action Plan, it has recently given conditional approval to Shell Oil to drill for oil in the perilous waters of the Chukchi Sea.

Experts who know the risks of drilling in those cold and remote waters say there is a high probability of an oil spill and that Shell has no credible means of cleaning it up. The company’s record scarcely inspires confidence. read more

Police in Seattle dismantle anti-Shell protest tent

SEATTLE | BY ERIC M. JOHNSON: Mon Jun 8, 2015

Police dismantled a tent on Monday used as a staging area for protests in Seattle over Royal Dutch Shell Plc’s use of the city’s port as a home base for a drilling rig that could depart this week for the Arctic.

Over the last month, activists have staged demonstrations against the oil company’s Arctic drilling plans, including on May 16 when hundreds of protesters in kayaks and small boats fanned out on a Seattle bay.

Seattle police dismantled but did not seize the 16-foot (5-meter) by 32-foot (10-meter) logistics tent central to organizing the launch of a planned rig-stopping flotilla, said Backbone Campaign Executive Director Bill Moyer. read more

By Lewis KambSeattle Times staff reporter: 8 June 2015

Opponents of Shell Oil’s lease of a Port of Seattle terminal to stage the company’s Arctic drilling fleet have employed a new tactic in their battle against the oil giant: deluging phone lines and email accounts of firms supporting the company’s stay in Seattle.

After the flotilla fades out, flood them with phone calls.

Opponents of Shell Oil’s lease of a Port of Seattle terminal to stage the company’s Arctic drilling fleet have employed a new tactic in their battle against the oil giant: deluging phone lines and email accounts of firms supporting the company’s stay in Seattle.

On Monday, shell.noblogs.org — a website operating to oppose Shell’s use of Elliott Bay as a base to prepare its fleet for another season of explorative drilling off Alaska’s North Slope — directed protesters to engage in an “electronic blockade” of local firms supporting the oil company. read more
