In 1997, the environmentalist organisation Greenpeace occupied the islet for a short time as a publicity stunt,[53] calling it Waveland, to protest against oil exploration. Greenpeace declared the island to be a "new Global State" (in this case qualifying it as a micronation) called Waveland, and offered citizenship to anyone willing to take their pledge of allegiance.
It is hard to resist the comparison to the Deltas' meaningless and futile gesture of protest in Animal House.
The beautiful quote that I am thinking of is this,
Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic... but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part!
