Xena fights Big Oil pollution

This video is called Xena – Warrior.

From JAM! Television in Canada:

Xena star chains herself to tanker


Actress-turned-eco warrior Lucy Lawless has strapped herself to an oil tanker docked in her native New Zealand to protest against drilling plans in the Artic.

The former Xena: Warrior Princess star has thrown her support behind a campaign against deep-sea drilling off the coast of her homeland over fears it could cause a similar disaster to the oil spill which wreaked havoc off the port of Tauranga in New Zealand last October.

She helped raise awareness of a petition against the drilling plans, but she has now gone one step further by joining six members of eco-group Greenpeace in boarding an oil tanker to protest.

The campaigners have chained themselves to the ship and are refusing to move until the captain calls off his Artic-bound mission, according to TMZ.com.

In a taped call to the website, Lawless says, “We know we’re going to be arrested… but… this is a moral decision for us.”

The star also admits she let out a Xena war cry as police helicopters circled above, adding, “I’m embarrassed to tell you when the (police) helicopter was overhead I gave more than one Xena war cry.”

The drilling plans are the plans of Shell corporation.

This video from England is called Stop Shell’s Arctic Drilling – Greenpeace climbers on the National Gallery.
