http://www.democracynow.org – After more than two months in detention, five members of the Arctic 30 are now free on bail in Russia. The group of 28 activists and 2 journalists were detained following an attempt to board Russia’s first offshore oil rig. We discuss the case with Greenpeace Executive director Kumi Naidoo, who says their fate remains uncertain as they continue to face charges of “hooliganism” that carry a maximum prison term of seven years.
