145 people from Hong Kong form a human banner along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront by the Hong Kong skyline reading: 'Free the Arctic 30'. This protest is part of an emergency Global Day of Solidarity for the 'Arctic 30.’ Tens of thousands of people participated in activities held in over 160 locations in 46 countries throughout the world. A Russian court charged 28 Greenpeace International activists, as well as a freelance videographer and photographer, with piracy this week. The charges follow a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling at a Gazprom oil platform in the Pechora Sea.
