Решение американского суда против Гринписа - это надо читать целиком - http://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2013/03/19/12-35332%20web.pdf

Ну и для контекста -

Greenpeace has ended its three day blockade of a drilling ship 100 miles off Shetland, after oil company Chevron won a second court order.
Protesters had brought drill ship Stena Carron to a standstill north of Shetland, by swimming in front of it.
Earlier they spent five days in a pod which they had attached to the ship's anchor chain, before Chevron took legal action to remove it.
Greenpeace said its ship the Esperanza was continuing to watch developments.
Activists had been swimming in front of the Stena Carron since Sunday, preventing it reaching the Lagavulin oil prospect where Chevron wants to drill an exploratory deep-water well.
Greenpeace is opposed to new deep-water drilling, pointing to the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
The court order bans activists from interfering with the vessel's progress.

The U.S. Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court ruling that environmental group Greenpeace must stay away from Shell's offshore Alaska drilling operations.

The court upheld the ruling by the U.S. District Court for Alaska, concluding that Shell had shown "a likelihood of success on the merits of its claim that Greenpeace USA would commit tortuous or illegal acts against Shell's Arctic drilling operations in the absence of an injunction" and that the resulting harm would be irreparable.

Prior to the start of its Arctic Alaska drilling campaign, Shell initially filed in U.S. District Court in Alaska for a temporary restraining order, and then a preliminary injunction, to prevent Greenpeace USA from coming within a specified distance of vessels involved in Shell's Arctic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) exploration and from committing various "unlawful and tortious acts" against those vessels.

Shell argued that Greenpeace activists used illegal direct action to interfere with legal oil drilling activities on a number of occasions, according to the court filing. These acts include boarding vessels to try and halt drilling activities. In May 2010, Greenpeace USA activists boarded the Harvey Explorer, a vessel Shell had contracted to use for Arctic OCS operations. The vessel was in the Gulf of Mexico at the time when activists boarded the vessel, painting slogans and unfurling banners.

Я тут, будучи каждую неделю наездами в Вирджинии, сходил поужинать с одним знакомым французом. Позвал его в хороший греческий ресторан в Тайсонс Корнер. Поужинали, ему очень понравилась бранзино, и он мне говорит - здорово, я, говорит, не очень в греческой кухне разбираюсь, но тут очень хорошо. Ты, говорит, русский, а в греческой кухне разбираешься, в следующий раз - моя очередь; я найду для нас какой-нибудь хороший французский ресторан!

Он же - у него, наверное, четверть крови откуда-то из Африки (Марокко?); хоть родился и вырос в Париже. Так вот, какое-то время назад, когда он проходил процесс на гринкарту, ему надо было ответить на вопрос про свою расу. Он на них посмотрел, и говорит - а что писать? Они на него посмотрели и ответили - африкан американ. Так вот он с тех пор так и записан в официальных документах как африкан американ. Куча льгот по этому поводу, между прочим :)

Дорогие Нью Йоркцы, как вы терпите у себя этого мудака и ханжу Блумберга?
