Abstract:

When a Greenpeace ship set sail to protest the first oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, no one on board could have predicted what would happen next. As the sheet ice melts around the northernmost region of the world, oil companies see an opportunity to explore the rich deposits underneath. Environmentalists fear that Western oil firms will partner with Russian ones to exploit the lower safety standards, and cash in on this oil. Terrified of a new oil rush, Greenpeace activists were demonstrating at an offshore platform when Russian authorities seized them at gunpoint and imprisoned them without warning. They became known as the 'Arctic 30' and the international mass media broadcast their story of political victimization, much like Pussy Riot. This ruthless act of aggression by Russian special forces against a non-governmental organization afforded these activists a megaphone for their cause. 'Black Ice' brings you a candid, first-hand account of these events, and explores what happens when preventing a crime turns you into the criminal.
