Greenpeace activists protest outside the Russian Embassy in London

The last few days have been very emotional for me. I work on the picture desk and dramatic images have been coming in showing the Russian coast guards reacting with force to our peaceful action at Gazprom’s oil platform. Now, the Arctic 30 have been remanded in custody for up to two months. But today we've recieved loads of pictures from all over the world showing our solidarity with the Arctic 30. Hopefully our friends and colleagues will be freed soon.
