Activist Post

Much has been written in the mainstream media lately about Russia’s seemingly harsh treatment of the crew members of Greenpeace’s ship, Arctic Sunrise, whose crew were arrested for boarding a Russian state-owned Gazprom oil rig in the Arctic Ocean, ostensibly because they wished to protest oil drilling in a fragile Arctic ecosystem.

The crew of the Arctic Sunrise, now affectionately known by the moniker “The Arctic 30,” are currently being held in prison in the Russian port city of Murmansk on charges of hooliganism.

According to a September 26, 2013 article in the New York Times: “Seizure of a Greenpeace Vessel by Russia, ” Kumi Naidoo, the executive director of Greenpeace International, is quoted as saying:

We welcome President Putin’s recognition that our activists are clearly not pirates, and acted purely out of concern for the Arctic environment,” Mr. Naidoo said in a statement. “Our climbers attempted to attach themselves to the side of the platform to raise attention to the threat of Arctic oil drilling in this fragile environment and the urgent need to deal with climate change. (Source)

Greenpeace Director Naidoo’s description of the event as reported by the New York Times only tells a small part of the story. The boarding of the oil rig which is a violation of international law was, in my opinion and no doubt the opinion of many others, well-orchestrated to function as an excuse to launch a smear campaign against a Russian regime that stands in opposition against much of the Globalist agenda.

Thankfully, Russia has a low tolerance for NGO-sponsored tomfoolery, and as such has enacted stiff regulations against their proliferation throughout that country.

A silent protest is due to be staged this Saturday 2nd November outside the Russian embassy in London and a petition will also be delivered, demanding the immediate release of Kieron Bryan, a freelance journalist detained with Greenpeace activists – who has been held since 18 September in Murmansk.

He is currently facing both the original piracy charges, and newer charges of hooliganism.

Russell Bryan, brother of Kieron, said the situation has left his sibling in a ‘state of shock.’

He said: “Kieron is very confused and angry, and he feels like he’s being used. His conditions aren’t particularly great. He’s been on his own in a cell for 23 hours a day, for the past six weeks.”
