The Polar Pioneer undocked from Terminal 5 at 6 a.m., pulled by tug boats.

Protesters sent out an alert Sunday night to supporters to block the departure. read more

SEATTLE — The U.S. Coast Guard says it has detained several protesters in kayaks who tried to block Royal Dutch Shell’s drill rig as it leaves Seattle on its way to explore for oil in the Arctic Ocean.

Lt. Dana Warr says several people were detained Monday, mostly for violating the safety zone around the vessel. He didn’t immediately know how many. He says the rig departed around 6 a.m. with police and Coast Guard enforcing the safety zone.

Greenpeace spokeswoman Cassady Sharp says about a dozen “kayaktivists” paddled out around 4 a.m. and formed a blockade. She says about 40 to 50 supporters in kayaks and canoes lined up behind them. read more

Dr. Majid Rafizadeh Become a fanPresident of the International American Council: 14 June 2015

“Royal Dutch Shell PLC, which owes the Islamic Republic an outstanding debt of more than $2 billion, has been talking about repaying Iran after the nuclear deal is signed, and consequently the related sanctions are lifted.”

In an unprecedented move, Iranian leaders have welcomed American oil companies to enter Iran, upon the condition that sanctions are lifted. This move suggests that the Islamic Republic is putting its economic interests ahead of its revolutionary ideological interests. In return, the economic profits will definitely help Iran spread its revolutionary ideologies and principles in the region.

Recently, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh stated to Iran’s media “We welcome the presence of American oil companies in Iran,” adding, “we will definitely prepare the grounds for the presence of American oil companies in Iran.” read more

Shell said there would be no impact to offshore production due to the removal of non-essential workers ahead of the storm system’s approach to the U.S. Gulf Coast. read more
