  • Greenpeace activists who blocked a coal delivery in Poland this week risk up to 10 years behind bars after prosecutors pressed charges, the global environmental group and officials said Friday.
  • The activists on Wednesday climbed cranes at the Polish port of Gdansk to block the unloading of coal from Mozambique, calling on the Polish government to move to renewable energy.
  • The group also attempted on Monday to prevent the Indian Goodwill cargo vessel carrying the coal from Mozambique from docking by blocking it with its iconic Rainbow Warrior ship.
