Out and About: Queuing from and for sunrise

For the first time in six years, the Arctic Sunrise – Greenpeace’s famous icebreaker and perpetual annoyance to environmental lawbreakers everywhere – docked in Copenhagen over the weekend.

The visit was an unqualified success. Nearly 1,500 people queued on Saturday and Sunday for a chance to tour the famous ship and talk to the crew.

“The crew of the Arctic Sunrise and all at Greenpeace Denmark felt truly honoured to see close to 1,500 people visiting the ship in just two days,” said Markus Power, the volunteer unit head at Greenpeace Nordic.

“Having a Greenpeace ship in town is always a very special event for us.” Power said he was glad the Danish public could feel a bit of what he called “magic”.
