Over the past few days and weeks, protesters in and around Seattle and the Puget Sound have been protesting the Shell oil rig that will be sent up to the Arctic for drilling. Some of the protests have been on land but other parts of the protests have included activists chaining themselves to the rig and hundreds of self proclaimed ‘kayaktivists’, who have all taken to several different bays around the Puget Sound to protest the oil rig’s existence.
