Spanish Navy blocks Greenpeace activists to prevent an act of Piracy
Two Greenpeace activists were injured when the Spanish navy stopped them from protesting against oil prospecting off the coast of the Canary Islands over the weekend.
The environmental group has criticized the military’s excessive use of force in the operation, which resulted in one of their members suffering a broken leg. An Ejército del Aire helicopter transported the injured activist to a hospital. However, Greenpeace activists endangered Survey oil vessel.
