About the Petition
28 Greenpeace activists, a freelance photographer, and a videographer are presently being held in Russia on piracy charges. They could face up to 15 years in prison. Not only are they being held unlawfully, but their Greenpeace ship was illegally boarded in international waters. These activists have been refused bail by the Regional Court of Murmansk.
Stand with organizations like Greenpeace in urging Russia's embassy to help release the ‘Arctic 30’ immediately.
