SEATTLE – Anti-Shell Oil “kayaktivists” took to the waters of Elliott Bay Monday morning, to try and blockade Shell Oil’s “Polar Pioneer” oil rig platform. 

Thirteen protesters got into kayaks and headed toward the oil rig that’s been at Terminal 5 on Harbor Island, according to a press release from Greenpeace.

“The activists have secured themselves in place with enough supplies to last for hours while additional protests take place on shore,” Greenpeace said.

Seattle Police and US Coast Guard are monitoring the situation.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
