Two Israeli citizens currently living in New Zealand have been charged with burglary following a four day protest on a ship in Port Taranaki.

The two are part of a group of eight who boarded the oil drill ship “Noble Dicoverer” as it was being prepared for a voyage to Alaska. They were protesting over Shell’s intention to drill for oil in the Arctic.

Among the eight were 25-yr-old Llai Amir and 28-yr-old Shai Sebastian Naides. Amir is currently living in Auckland and Naides in Wellington.

The eight protesters spent four days atop the ship’s derrick.
