E-mail the Russian Embassy to protest against the charging of these activists with piracy when they were only protecting the Arctic.
The crew of the Arctic Sunrise, who were detained last week, are now behind bars inside a Russian jail on ludicrous charges of piracy.
This is a difficult time. But being part of Greenpeace has taught me what all game-changing movements have learnt: that far from being powerless – together, ordinary people are powerful beyond imagination.
I know that’s why the Russian authorities stormed our ship last week. Because they know and we know that no one else will stand up to Big Oil in a place as remote, dangerous and pristinely important as the Arctic. We are truly the only ones standing in their way.
So today, I need your help to strengthen our movement, with a donation to our Arctic campaign. Our work in the Arctic has a fierce urgency that will not wait.Will you answer this call?
Together, we can make the seemingly impossible, possible. The power, the means to sustain all that we do, comes from you.
We don't accept any money from companies or governments so we can be independent and challenge anyone who threatens the planet or peace. To help us keep fighting climate change, defending our oceans and protecting ancient forests, you can make a regular donation by direct debit. Thank you!
