Changing of Finland’s Green guard

Finland’s Development Minister Heidi Hautala (Green), who was also responsible for state enterprises, was forced to resign October 11 due to her handling of a Greenpeace demonstration against the state-owned firm Arctia Shipping which has a contract to break ice to facilitate oil drilling in Alaska, the public broadcaster YLE reported.
