Russian parliament votes for amnesty for Arctic 30

The Greenpeace activists who spent two months in jail after a peaceful protest in the Arctic have expressed relief after the Russian parliament voted to grant them amnesty. But they also declared: “There is no amnesty for the Arctic.”

Great news for the activists and two journalists and their families before Christmas.

Greenpeace’s campaign to Save the Arctic continues - calling for the Arctic to be made a global sanctuary, protected from off-shore drilling and destructive industry.
