Lucy Lawless

Arrested in New Zealand

2/26/2012 3:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lucy Lawless and a few of her Greenpeace pals were arrested after they had spent four days protesting aboard an oil-drilling ship docked in New Zealand today (well, it's Monday there).

The group had snuck aboard the ship a few days back in an effort to keep it from going out on a drilling expedition.

Lawless spoke to TMZ earlier this week and told us, "We know we're going to be arrested ... but ... this is a moral decision for us."

Any minute some lefty nut job will be calling her courageous ignoring the fact that she used fossil fuel to get to and from New Zealand. Wait.. . the cause was noble and therefore exempt from rational thought.... sorry wasn't thinking.

Good for her, she is trying to keep them from drilling in the arctic where a spill would take forever to clean up if they were ever to be able to clean it up at all. I don't understand people who don't care about the planet, it's not left wing to want your kids to be able to drink clean water, breathe clean air and not have to worry about a climate going out of control.

It took them 4 days to arrest her? Police in New Zealand must be terrible. Anyways good for Lucy for standing up for what she believes in. Not many people would go 4 days doing something like that.

This is eco-terrorism. Lucy Lawless does not deserve a pat on the back for these kind of tactics. She is not a hero for this.. she is a coward.
If everyone used these "by any means neccessary" tactics, the world would be an even sh***ier place.

She's stupid. There is no way any drilling could hurt the South Pole. It will still be -100F or colder for most of the year and unlivable with or without drilling.

It's moronic hubris to think man has that big of an influence on the climate.

Should have left her up there, and let the boat sail to the Artic...then see how keen she is.

Her name says it all, Lawless. Maybe her middle name is brainless or clueless.

I am ashamed of this Al Gore loving hypocrite,The Russians have being drilling in the arctic for a long time but Greenpeace want to focus on easy targets .Lucy Clueless has gone on to say "i want a future for my children" well taxing people to death in the name of climate change serves no purpose.Its based on a lie to make money & her children would be wanting the latest gadget with some percentage made from petroleum.
