Euroblather boards Greenpeace's "Arctic Sunrise"

One of the three vessels in Greenpeace's fleet, the "Arctic Sunrise" is currently in London, as a visual reminder to MP's of how they should be voting on Wednesday, when the legislation for the (seventy six BILLION POUNDS' worth of) replacement of the Trident Nuclear Missile system is being debated. The ship was boarded and impounded last week in Scotland by The Ministry of Defence, and all crew detained for a couple of days. A few days later, the Sunrise is berthed near Tower Bridge, and was welcomed by the Mayor of London, amongst others.

Anyhow, the ship was open for inspection this weekend, and I took the opp for a lazy cycle down to show my support and check the boat out. There's a few more photos here.
