My name is Bonnie Wright, and I am very excited to be with Greenpeace on board The Arctic Sunrise. You may recognize me as Ginny Weasley from the Harry Potter films, but for the last three days, I have been a volunteer deckhand. I am here to learn more about Greenpeace’s Ocean Plastics campaign and how we can end single-use plastics. Plastics are filling up our oceans and killing marine life around the globe. From straws to soda rings, these plastics choke or entangle species like seabirds, turtles, and whales.

She works with crew member Jenn Peltz to pull up the tie lines as they depart the Bahamas. It’s time for corporations to come up with better designs and methods for the delivery of goods. Once just after departing from Freeport in The Bahamas and secondly when we were within The Gulf Stream. Trawling is like fishing, but unfortunately in this case for plastics.
Greenpeace has been trawling, conducting beach cleanups and brand audits throughout their Atlantic Coast ship tour to gain a better understanding of just how much plastic we have polluting our waterways and connecting the waste back to the corporations responsible for it. I was deeply saddened to find lots of different types of plastic in our trawl, large pieces of soft plastic, fishing lines, and polystyrene. The turtles and fish that were on this planet long before us are now eating these plastics which clog up their organs and can cause death. This should not be happening. The single-use plastic that we all use practically every day is harming ocean wildlife. We not only need to work on holding ourselves and community accountable, but we also need to hold corporations accountable for choking our oceans. There is no planet B, so I believe it is our responsibility to think before we consume plastic that will eventually make its way into this beautiful ocean I am currently surrounded by.
Bonnie Wright is an Actress and Director. From 2001 to 2011, she played Ginny Weasley in all eight films in the Harry Potter series. She feels fortunate to have spent a lot of time as a child by the sea or swimming in its waters and growing up with her Grandfather who was an officer in the Navy. She now lives by the ocean in California and surfs every other day.

Ray Makonnen are ordered to investigate. A bullet-sized particle, however, pierces the air hose on Chapman’s space suit, rendering him unconscious. Makonnen is able to repair the hose, but as he opens the airlock hatch, he is fatally struck by a similar particle. Makonnen’s last act before being propelled away into deep space is to push Chapman inside and close the airlock hatch. Chapman comes to and finds Makonnen gone and himself unable to communicate with the lunar base. Exiting his ship but still feeling the effects of his accident, Chapman collapses and sees tiny humanoids about six inches tall approaching.

At the trial, Chapman meets two beautiful women, Sesom’s smugly spoiled blond daughter Liara and the mute and gentle black-haired Zetha, with the former more than willing to answer his many questions about Rheton, and Sesom informs Chapman that he may later choose one of the women to marry once he has become accustomed to life on Rheton. Liara, after following and engaging constantly with Chapman, declares her love for him, but Chapman, still eager to return to his own people, rejects her. Herron, a young man who is himself in love with Liara, attempts to win her for himself by telling Sesom that Chapman is unfairly attempting to win the favors of both the women. Stating that he believes this to be a crime against the people of Rheton, Herron requests a duel to the death with Chapman.
