“I want to express my support and gratitude to the 30 activists who are in jail in Russia for trying to protect the Arctic from oil drilling. These men and women put their lives on the line to protect one of the last wildernesses on our planet. Even if India is far away, we will also be affected by climate change and the melting arctic ice. I urge the Russian authorities to look at the intention behind the activists protest and not label them as pirates unnecessarily. I hope these men and women receive justice soon.”
