‘Save The Arctic, Free Our Activists’: Greenpeace India

A group of Greenpeace activists led a peaceful protest outside the Russian embassy in New Delhi today and delivered a letter to the Ambassador demanding the immediate release of the activists and crew arrested in the Arctic by the Russian authorities yesterday. The activists carried placards with the message, ‘Save the Arctic – Free our activists’, outside the embassy.

It is now over 12 hours since Greenpeace International has had any contact with the ship, which appears to be heading west towards the Russian territorial waters.Greenpeace International has not received any formal confirmation of possible charges, and the activists have been denied access to legal or consular assistance. Over 20 Greenpeace offices are organising protests at Russian embassies around the world today.
