Following a peaceful protest at a Gazprom oil platform, the Greenpeace ship the Arctic Sunrise was illegally boarded by the Russian Coast Guard. The 28 international activists, a freelance photographer and a freelance videographer, including Captain and American Peter Willcox, have been sentenced to two months in custody on piracy charges.
It has now been 30 days of injustice for these 30 individuals.
