'Two Months of Injustice' Global Day of Solidarity

Video | 18 November, 2013

On Saturday 16th November 2013, at events at 265 cities in 43 countries, 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.

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.
