Greenpeace Blockades SFK Pulp Ship in Boreal

St-Fulgence, QC, Canada — On the morning of Friday, September 14, the Greenpeace Ship Artic Sunrise began a blockade (video) of the freighter Jaeger Arrow in Quebec's Saguenay River, preventing the export of thousands of tonnes of pulp to Europe. The pulp, manufactured by SFK Pulp from Canada's Boreal Forest, is destined for Stora Enso in Germany and France.

By the end of the day eight were arrested (video) and the story was out.
