Dear supporter, welcome to Greenpeace's latest newsletter 中 文 版 本
Your support leads to the release of the Arctic 30
Thank you for standing in solidarity with the Arctic Sunrise and the Arctic 30.
As of November 26, 29 of the Arctic 30 members have been released on bail. However one activist, Colin Russell, has seen his request for bail denied, with the authorities extending his detention for three months until February 24, 2014. Whilst the 29 activists and journalists can breathe a sigh of relief, they are still facing charges of both piracy and hooliganism.
And while solidarity events in 265 cities around the world have made some serious noise, we need more voices to help free the Arctic Sunrise and bring the Arctic 30 home.
Act now. Send a letter to the Russian Embassy to free our activists, support the Arctic Sunrise and end Arctic drilling for good.

Is palm oil a bad thing?
Is palm oil a bad thing?
Just a few weeks ago, we exposed links between the world’s largest palm oil trader, Wilmar International, and forest destruction. This exploitation has seriously damaged the environment and destroyed the habitat of endangered species such as the Sumatran tiger. There appears to be a strong link between palm oil and deforestation … but does it have to be like this? Learn more about how good palm oil is possible.
Guangzhou Marathon runners volunteered in PM2.5 sampling
Guangzhou Marathon runners volunteered in PM2.5 sampling
Do you still remember in April, we ran a feature on Greenpeace volunteer Zhong Yu's marathon experience in Beijing last year and the relevant air quality studies? The 2nd Guangzhou Marathon took place last week and we once again invited Zhong Yu, together with another runner, to have her personal air pollution exposure tested. Both runners were carrying a PM2.5 personal air pollution sampler which simulated human breathing and captured PM2.5 particles for further analysis throughout the marathon. We hope that our studies in Guangzhou this year can make people pay more attention to the air pollution situation in the region. Find out more about the test result NOW!
