Climate justice activists — including a group of "kayaktivists" — are gathering in Portland to blockade a ship commissioned by oil giant Shell to break up Arctic ice in order to pave the way for arctic drilling in the Chukchi Sea. Early this morning, activists with Greenpeace rappelled from the St. John’s bridge in Portland to create an "aerial blockade" of the vessel. We speak to Annie Leonard, executive director of Greenpeace USA, as she stands under the bridge.
