Protests of Shell Oil’s mooring of the Polar Pioneer continued on Monday, with protestors forming a blockade at Terminal 5. Those protests followed Saturday’s on-water protests against Shell’s plans to drill in the Arctic Ocean.

At the Saturday protest, hundreds of “kayaktivists” took the water for the “Paddle in Seattle.” Photographer Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren was on the water with the protestors, and got these shots. Additional photos of Monday’s rally by our own Casey Jaywork.

Below, see video of Sarra Tekola speaking at the rally Monday.
