Free the arctic 30


Why this is important

On 20 September the Russian Coast Guard illegally boarded the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise while in international waters and arrested 30 activists on board at gunpoint. The activists were protesting Arctic oil drilling on the Gazprom platform, Prirazlomnaya, in the Pechora Sea off the Russian coast.We are demanding the urgent release of all activists, the immediate withdrawal of the Coast Guard from the greenpeace ship, and an end to offshore oil drilling in the Arctic for good.
