"Shell Oil icebreaker moves past protesters to Arctic"
I saw this Associated Press story at USAtoday.com:
"A Royal Dutch Shell icebreaker that was the target of environmental protesters left Portland on Thursday bound for an Arctic drilling operation after a tense standoff ended with kayakers and activists who had dangled from a bridge to block its path.
The Fennica left dry dock and made its way down the Willamette River toward the Pacific Ocean soon after authorities forced the demonstrators from the river and the St. Johns Bridge.
Portland police closed the bridge Thursday afternoon as 13 protesters hung from the bridge in an attempt to stop the Fennica."
