Activists from the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior occupy the ‘Prezioso’ offshore oil rig operated by the Italian oil company ENI in the Sicilian Channel. The activists unfurl a 120 meter square banner depicting the Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, with a satirical message promising: ‘More Offshore Drilling For Italy’ and Greenpeace’s demand of: “STOP FOSSIL, GO RENEWABLE”. Activists aboard a life raft anchor to the base of the platform, displaying more pro-renewable banners. Greenpeace is protesting against an Italian governmental decree that offers incentives for offshore drilling and asks Prime Minister Renzi to promote ambitious EU renewable energy targets at a meeting on the 23th and 24th of October.
