MY Arctic Sunrise is making her way through ice in the fjord of Scoresbysund as part of her tour of Greenland in 2005
I'm so happy to hear that the Arctic Sunrise is finally released by Russian authorities after months in custody! That's great news, but she should never have been detained in the first place as she was in international waters during a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling when she was seized. Some of my favourite photos of the ship show her in remote locations in harsh conditions.
The Arctic Sunrise is instrumental in our campaigning and has been to many different places supporting various campaigns over the years.
