Here are some of the most moving and captivating images of Greenpeace activism from 2017. It’s been a wild year of inspiring victories — and more than ever, it’s been a year which illustrates that when we speak truth to power, when we stand collectively for what is just — we have the ability to mobilize real change in so many facets of our societies.

We’ve also had some real blows to the environmental movement, equality and injustice, and to the continued entrenchment of corporate greed throughout the world. Despite all this, there are millions of you who have only fought harder and remain ever vigilant in the face of such incredible threats — we have the photos to prove it.

So without further ado, take a look at the images that have defined this year of resistance. From the strength of people power to individual acts of courage, here is a showcase of some of the most remarkable moments of 2017.
