    A judge has ordered Greenpeace crew be detained, so far without charge,
    for two months, after boarding a Russian Gazprom oil platform to protest
    against drilling in the Arctic.

    Greenpeace to appeal over activists held in Russia

    they may face charges of piracy, with a potential sentence of up to 15 years.

    If you can, please email your Russian ambassador to support their case,
    which I've already done.

    Exciting, and I think that the whole timing of the event coincides with the overcoming of the "chemistry" delusions Russians still have and won't be waiting for at the Winter Olympics.

    Chemistry is beyond love and hate in nature.

    The 'Arctic 30' have now been charged with piracy:

    They have also been refused bail, and are being kept in freezing Russian prisons.

    Aaaah.... what did these thirty employed ambitious people, but mostly without direction of a critical nature, do this for? Will they find anything meaningful for their pains? I instead found everything in fostering a nation's goals. Can they explain how Russia can follow it's continuing course of destiny in compliance with the wants and deliberate needs of mankind? Wanton; it is only wanton ethics; only to shake the sword in the breeze, only to make the unbelievable desire for the Peace for every human alive.
