Trapped in a Russian jail
The 30 women and men aboard the Greenpeace Arctic Sunrise were brave enough to confront the oil industry in one of the last untouched places on earth. Now they are being silenced and intimidated on trumped up charges of piracy. Their arrest in international waters also violates the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. This disproportionate crackdown is a serious issue that deserves your attention -- we call on you to use your influence over Russia to appeal for the release of these men and women.
