Xena boards ship in oil drill protest - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)


Xena boards ship in oil drill protest - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): Lawless said she was not concerned at the prospect of being arrested.

"I'm a true believer," she said by mobile phone from the ship.

"We need to start switching over to renewable energy now; we don't have to go to the ends of the earth to suck out every last drop of oil."

Lawless, who starred as the title character in the fantasy television series Xena:
Warrior Princess from 1995-2001, is a long-time environmental activist who was named as a Greenpeace ambassador in 2009.

Police said the protesters had climbed a drilling tower on the ship and were displaying banners.
