Save The Arctic

Stand with the Arctic 30. Send a message to your local Russian embassy right now.

Russian embassies report back to Moscow every day about what's happening in their countries. We need your help to keep their inboxes flooded with messages of support for the the Arctic 30.

Who are the Arctic 30 and what do they stand for?

28 activists, a freelance photographer and a freelance videographer, were involved in a protest against the Gazprom Arctic drilling platform Prirazlomnaya on September 18th. Two of the activists tried to climb the side of the platform to hang a banner. One day later, Russian security services descended from a helicopter onto the deck of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise, seized the ship at gunpoint and detained the entire crew.

The activists, crew and journalists were at the Gazprom rig because they felt compelled to bear witness to the slow, unrelenting destruction of the Arctic. As the ice is retreating, oil companies are moving north to drill for the fuels that drive that melting. The Arctic 30 are people who care enough about the world we live in to take a stand and protect it. The Arctic is a stunning place, home to unique species including polar bears and Arctic foxes. Drilling for oil there is an appalling act that threatens this extraordinary environment, and the world’s climate.

How your letter will help

We need your voice to help keep the letters coming into Russian embassy inboxes. It's part of their job to keep the Kremlin informed about what's happening in their host countries.

The more embassies reporting back about this global surge of outrage every day, the more likely the Arctic 30 will be treated fairly and quickly released. Every letter is counted and each letter counts.

The charge of hooliganism, which carries a maximum 7 year jail sentence, is extreme and disproportionate. Yet these are the charges being made against all 30. They made their stand in the interests of us all. Now we must come together and stand with them.

Take action, send a message to the Russian embassy now.
