2 People Chained to Shell Ship North of Seattle

Two people have chained themselves to a support ship that is part of Royal Dutch Shell's exploratory oil drilling plans and currently moored in Washington state. Eric Ross of the Backbone Campaign said on Saturday morning that Matt Fuller joined student activist Chiara Rose in suspending themselves from the anchor chain of the Arctic Challenger, which is in Bellingham Bay. Petty Officer 3rd Class Katelyn Shearer said Saturday morning that the Coast Guard cutter Osprey spent the night monitoring Rose but took no action. Rob Lewis, a spokesman for the Bellingham activists, said they are protesting Shell's plan for Arctic drilling.
