Hoje, ativistas do Greenpeace realizaram uma vigília noturna em frente ao presídio onde 4 dos nossos ativistas se encontram presos em Copenhague, para pedir sua libertação. Os ativistas correm o risco de passar o natal presos, e segundo informações, não estão recebendo os melhores tratos, apesar de terem realizado protestos pacíficos.

Greenpeace today called for the immediate release of four of its activists who face spending Christmas in jail. Three of the activists took part in the peaceful protest at the Danish Queen’s Heads of State dinner during the Copenhagen Climate Summit.Over 100 Greenpeace staff and supporters held a candle-lit vigil holding banners reading ‘Freedom from Climate Injustice’ outside of the Vestre Fængsel (prison) in Copenhagen where the activists are being held in isolation and without trial. Greenpeace strongly condemns the arrogance of the heads of state from the world’s most powerful countries for presenting a ‘take it or leave it’ deal to the Copenhagen Climate Summit. Greenpeace International Executive Director, Kumi Naidoo, warns: “The world is facing tragic crises of leadership. Rather than coming together to secure a future for hundreds of millions of people by agreeing an historic deal to avert climate chaos, leaders of the world’s most powerful countries have betrayed future and current generations. Averting climate chaos has just gotten a whole lot harder”.
