'Confronting Arctic Oil' Activists in Norway

After Greenpeace attempted a peaceful protest against Gazprom, a Russian oil company, from drilling in the Arctic, Russian authorities illegally boarded a Greenpeace ship via helicopter and are holding more than twenty activists on board at gunpoint.

We’re launching an international effort to get our peaceful protesters back safely. Join the effort by telling the Russian US ambassador to release the activists and our ship.
