The Arctic 30

The Arctic 30 spent more than three months in a Russian detention centre, despite the fact that the seizure of their ship and the imprisonment of the activists were deemed illegal by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.

Their act of civil disobedience was a courageous stand against destructive Arctic oil drilling and the onslaught of climate change.
