Greenpeace activists aboard inflatables hold banners reading: “Get Out Of The Arctic, Save The Arctic & #FreeTheArctic30”; and follow the ‘Esimit Europa 2’ as it nears the finish of the Barcolana Regatta in Trieste, to protest against the competition’s main sponsor Gazprom. Greenpeace demands that Russian state-owned company Gazprom cease their high-risk oil exploration in the Arctic. The protesters also repeated demands for the release of the 28 Greenpeace International activists, as well as a freelance photographer and a freelance videographer, currently on remand, charged by the Russian authorities with piracy punishable for up to 15 years in prison. Greenpeace insists the charge is not valid under international law. 2013-10-13
