Greenpeace board cargo ship with VW diesel cars
Greenpeace volunteers in kayaks, speed boats and climbers on the jetty prevent the 23,498-tonne cargo ship Elbe Highway from docking at Sheerness in the Thames Estuary. The cargo ship is bringing Volkswagen diesel cars into the UK and the Greenpeace action is to prevent this from happening and to make VW ditch diesel. Two climbers board the ship and hang a banner on the roll-on roll-off part of the ship preventing any cars from being off-loaded.
