A-listers outraged: Jude Law, Damon Albarn and host of celebrities protest outside Russian Embassy
DailyMail ^ | 5 October 2013 | Chris Pleasance

Posted on 10/06/2013 12:48:07 PM PDT by klpt

Actor Jude Law and musician Damon Albarn have joined around 800 people protesting outside the Russian Embassy in London over the arrest of 30 Greenpeace activists.

The pair, along with Paul Simonon from The Clash, have called the arrests a disgrace and described them as a personal blow as their friend Frank Hewetson is among those being held.

Relatives of the activists have also organised several protests across the country for the six Britons who are in custody, and a further 47 demonstrations are being held around the world.

If anyone is thinking of doing a Phil Collins biography, Jude Law looks ready.

I guess the UK has its own “A-list” that doesn’t correspond to ours ...

Oh these celebritards. I’ll bet Jude Law is so sad about these leeches. Well, he can go back to his yacht by tomorrow morning once his rich white guilt has subsided.

Hee hee - i knew this would come in handy ...

"I guess Greenpeace got lulled into complacency by the fearful water cannons of the Japanese and the mild penalties which were formerly the price their protests. They didn’t count on the Russians who don’t seem to care too much about their NGO and environmental activist credentials. It’s interesting to read the comments on some sites by outraged Belgians or New Zealanders proclaiming their indignation against “outlaw Russia”.

But they miss the point. Who’s going to stop Russia from doing what it wants? Will it be the Belgian Navy? Or the New Zealand Navy? Or the United Nations?

The great thing about the late Tom Clancy, who recently died at the age of 66, was that he reminded a cynical liberal American and European audience just what exactly stood between the world and countries like Russia.

The Navy.

To be more precise the United States Navy."

When you forcibly board someone else’s property, your actions cease being a protest and become a criminal act. Their actions are piracy and the Russians are treating them as such. They lost 15 years of their lives and the boat. Hope that fat captain visits you often in the gulag.

The French, of all people, took some very direct action against Greenpiss when their operatives sank its flagship Rainbow Warrior in a New Zealand harbor back in the 1980s. The Greenies were threatening to try to disrupt French nuclear tests. Non, non, non!! said the French. No one was killed or injured but the ship didn't delay any nuke tests either.

Terrorism is terrorism, doesnt matter if your carrying nicely printed signs ,green armbands, have a famous activist ship carrying you.

I applaud Putins Govt. Russia in many aspects, especially this matter. They seems to be in some or many aspects a more Christian nation than the U.S.

The Greenpeace terrorists must learn to only screw with America or England. Both Nations have become pussified. The Russins however refuse to be screwed with.

So Russia killing dissidents could move these folks to protest but threaten the sodomites or arrest hippies = instant outrage.

They are.

These ‘activists’ were likely doing their usual, trying to sabotage legal activities, which is highly dangerous on a rig.
I noted three interesting points about the video on the website.

A) The usual leftist use of children as props. Disgusting.
B) one woman declared that green peace activists were not ‘nasty people’. If you’ve ever met one, you’ll disagree.
C) She went on to describe the rig as an “oil rink”. Now, I don’t know if they have “oil rinks” in the UK, but I can’t imagine they’re fun to skate on. What a moron!

No kidding! Remember when an ‘A-List’ was reserved for real stars like Frank Sinatra/John Wayne/Bob Hope/Dean Martin/Rita Hayworth/Joan Crawford etc. etc? These freakin’ kids wouldn’t know a real star like those if they all came back to life and bit ‘em on their butts!

Actually, a photographer was killed in the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, and the Kiwis were very upset with France about it. When they jailed the French agents responsible for the manslaughter, they threatened to put EU embargo on NZ agricultural produce until they gave them up to the French, who made scarcely a token effort to punish them.

Stanislavsky would be proud of how he’s channeling his anger with such subtlety.

It’s hard to tell if he’s upset about the Russians or if the waiter forgot to bring him his two tined snail fork.

The pirates should be tried and hung quickly as in the old days, preferably from a real yardarm (or a davit) on their own ship to put a fine point on it.
