Following an illegal boarding and arrest of the ship Arctic Sunrise after a peaceful protest against dangerous oil drilling, the ship was towed to Murmansk. The 'Arctic 30' were interviewed and subsequently detained without charge. Greenpeace, along with millions around the world, is calling for their immediate release, and sees the recent climate report as a strong call for more people to stand up against the reckless oil industry.
Russian oil giant Gazprom is trying to silence the activists and anyone who would speak out against Arctic oil drilling. Along with other oil companies like Shell, Gazprom is afraid of international attention on the Arctic oil race. However, the truth is that the world needs more, not less, attention focused on lunacy of the global greed for more Arctic oil.
