The Arctic is coming under assault and needs people from around the world to stand up and demand action to protect it. The campaign calls for a ban on oil drilling and unsustainable fishing in Arctic waters. The campaign will also push for a sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the pole that would in a stroke stop polluting industries colonising the top of the world.06/21/2012
