The blockade is accomplished by stretching a rope above the water between two wind turbines on either side of the harbour and attaching three Greenpeace activists to the middle of the rope. Among the activists are the brand new executive directors of Greenpeace Netherlands: Anna Shoemakers and Joris Thiessen. The activists are hanging ten metres above the water, holding a banner with the message: "Coal: Gone with the Wind." Greenpeace calls on Dutch politicians to close all coal-fired power plants in the Netherlands without delay and fully embrace wind energy.
