Email John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and ask him to call for the immediate and safe release of Artic 30 Canadians Alexandre and Paul.
The Arctic Sunrise was seized at gunpoint by Russian commandos in international waters on September 19th this year. The crew of the ship had earlier held a peaceful protest at an Arctic drilling platform operated by Russian oil giant Gazprom. The ship was subsequently towed to Russia where the 28 crew and two freelance journalists have since been held in prison. They are charged with hooliganism, carrying a 7 year sentence, and piracy, which carries 15 years.
That was textbook.
