On September 19th, 28 Greenpeace International activists and two freelance photojournalists were arrested under armed guard in international waters after a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling. They are now being detained in Russia and some are facing very serious and unfounded piracy charges.
This Saturday, thousands of people across the world will join a global day of solidarity for the Arctic 30. Will you join them?
Our brave friends took a stand to protect the Arctic and our climate. Now they need you to take a stand for them and for our planet.
