"Let our people go!"

Video | 2013-11-26

On Saturday 16th November 2013, at events at 265 cities in 43 countries, including Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, thousands of people took part in a day of solidarity to mark two months since the Arctic 30 were detained following a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling on September 18.

A Russian court has charged the Arctic 30 (twenty-eight Greenpeace International activists, as well as a freelance videographer and photographer) with both piracy and hooliganism. No official confirmation has been given by the Russian authorities that the charge of piracy has been dropped, which carry a maximum sentence of 15 and 7 years, respectively.
