Lucy Lawless is channeling her Xena days!
The actress and six other environmentalists climbed on top of a 174 foot drilling tower on a drilling ship owned by Shell off the coast of New Zealand.
The protesters hung banners from the drilling derrick reading, “Stop Shell” and "#SaveTheArctic."
Lucy stated that she did the protest for her kiddies and that it was her first active protest against drilling.
She said the following about her act for Greenpeace:
I’ve got three kids. My sole biological reason for being on this planet is to ensure that they can flourish, and they can’t do that in a filthy, degraded environment. We need to stand up while we still can
Way to break the Law, Super Mom!
The ship has ceased operations but Shell is looking for a way to go around the protestors so they can drill in the Artic.
Score one for the planet!
