The Norwegian company Statoil intends to launch oil development near the Medvezhy island famous for rich variety of bird population. Any oil leak in this area is fraught with an ecological catastrophe. Dozens of thousands of people in Norway have already sent letters of protest to the government of Norway in a bid to thwart these plans. On behalf of all these people the Greenpeace has been holding a protest act to defend the Arctic territory, said 23-year-old Greenpeace activist Rosanna Andre from Stockholm.Greenpeace protesters said they have enough water and food to stay on board the oil platform for several days. A ship, which brought the Greenpeace protesters to the area of the Norwegian oil platform, has been drifting nearby.
May 23, the Norwegian Environment Agency decided to postpone oil development in the Arctic zone pending results of an investigation into the Greenpeace complaint lodged with the Agency. The Greenpeace said in its complaint that the Statoil company had violated a ban imposed in Norway on oil prospecting in Arctic conditions and in the vicinity of a zone of Arctic ice.
