Update: Over 10,000 people in over 160 cities worldwide took part to the global day of solidarity with the Arctic30.

The Arctic 30 are facing two months behind bars in Russia for a peaceful protest against dangerous oil drilling.

They took action on September 18 at the giant Prirazlomnaya oil rig, where Gazprom intends to become the first company to pump oil from icy Arctic waters.

Over a day later the ship was illegally boarded by armed special forces, before being towed to Murmansk.

28 activists, as well as a freelance videographer and a freelance photographer, have been refused bail.
