Watch How Governments Attack Protesters To Defend Corporate Oil Giants

Navy aggressively rammed Greenpeace boats and broke one activist´s leg

Shocking footage emerged today of the Spanish navy protecting an oil tanker in the Canary islands, where Greenpeace were protesting drilling in the area. One girl, a 23 year-old Italian, fell overboard when the navy´s speedboat rammed their dinghy at speed. She can be heard screaming as she falls overboard and breaks her leg in the propeller before being airlifted to hospital.

The footage shows the lengths governments will go to to protect the oil industry, and is quite disturbing. Who should the military serve- the nation and its people, or private corporations?
