Protesters rallying for the release of 30 Greenpeace
activists - including two Kiwis - are holding fort outside
New Zealand's Russian Embassy today.
About 15 protesters, including the Green Party's Gareth
Hughes, donned red t-shirts featuring the words "Free the
Arctic 30" for the protest this morning.
Thirty of the organisation's activists are being held onboard
the Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise.
The crew were protesting against oil drilling in Arctic
waters when the Arctic Sunrise was stormed by Russia's Coast
Guard on Thursday.
