Arrest these Greenpeace thugs....
Greenpeace's tactics are just horrible...
Greenpeace activists who stopped two huge conveyor belts that feed a Suncor upgrader on Wednesday breached the site north of Fort McMurray by floating down the Athabasca River.Nobody voted for Greenpeace's leadership on climate change....arrest the bunch.
"I am on a boat under the bridge which connects the mine to the plant, and other people have shut down two conveyor belts on the east side of the river," said Greenpeace executive director Bruce Cox.
This would place the activists between the hopper and crusher, which grinds the chunks of bitumen and sand so it can be mixed with water and put in a slurry pipeline en route to the plant.
Suncor officials have yet to respond to the incident.
Mr. Cox said the site invasion by 23 activists is "to draw international attention to the tarsands. We have activists from Brazil, Germany, France, to name a few, and they have a pretty simple message," he said.
"People are literally dying for leadership on climate change. And we are calling on world leaders to take aggressive action on the UN climate talks taking place in Copenhagen (in December)."
