“Shell sues Greenpeace for $2.1 million after protests in the North Sea

Oil giant Shell is suing Greenpeace for $2.1 million after activists boarded a ship transporting a platform to the North Sea in January.

“The legal costs to secure two court injunctions to prevent further boarding were significant. So were the costs for the companies who had to deal with the action at sea, for example by mobilizing an extra safety vessel and increasing security at the port,” a Shell spokesman said in a statement to MarketWatch.

Greenpeace has reportedly called it the “biggest legal threat” in its 50-year history. The lawsuit stems from an incident earlier this year when four of the organization’s protesters boarded the White Marlin ship near the Canary Islands and stayed on board for 13 days until it reached Norway.”
