Shell has been targeted as the Arctic oil business partner of Russian energy giant Gazprom who Greenpeace say have played a significant role in this situation: "The Arctic 30 were arrested and imprisoned after Gazprom asked the authorities to intervene during our peaceful protest. Now the 30 remain behind bars and Gazprom could play a key role in securing their release so they can go home to their families. If Gazprom wanted the Arctic 30 to be free, it could wield significant influence by calling for their release.”
South London protests were held at Forest Hill (Stanstead Road), Bromley Hill (pictured below), Croydon (Whitehorse Road) and Battersea.
