Documenting the Global Day of Solidarity in support of the 'Arctic 30' on October 5, 2013.
Tens of thousands of people participate in more than 200 events held in 49 countries throughout the world. A Russian court has this week charged twenty-eight Greenpeace International activists, as well as a freelance videographer and photographer, with piracy. The charges follow a peaceful protest against Arctic oil drilling at a Gazprom oil platform in the Pechora Sea.
