One activist is hospitalised and another injured as Spanish Navy boats repeatedly ram Greenpeace boats engaged in a peaceful protest against oil drilling in the Canary Islands, Spain. Inflatable boats from the Greenpeace ship ‘Arctic Sunrise’ approach the oil drilling ship ‘Rowan Renaissance’ to protest against reckless plans by Repsol to drill for offshore oil close to the popular Canary Islands tourist destinations of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. The activists’ boats head towards the drilling ship flying flags in Spanish calling for ‘No oil exploration. Yes to Renewables’. They are aggressively intercepted and rammed repeatedly by three Spanish Navy boats from the Navy patrol ship ‘Relámpago’ (P43) which has been escorting the ‘Rowan Renaissance.' One activist, an Italian woman aged 23, suffers a broken leg and is evacuated to hospital in Las Palmas by the Spanish Navy. Another activist was treated on board the ‘Arctic Sunrise’ for minor cuts.
