Actress Lucy Lawless and seven other Greenpeace activists were remanded on bail for two weeks when they appeared before Judge Josephine Bouchier in the New Plymouth District Court this morning.

The eight were charged with entering an enclosed area at Port Taranaki without authority and with the intent to commit a crime after boarding the drill ship Noble Discoverer at the port in February.

None entered a plea and police did not oppose bail.
