Summary

There is a saying in Russian jails. Ne ver ne boysya ne prosi: don't trust, don't fear, don't beg.

Don't trust because life here will always disappoint you. Don't fear because whatever you're scared of, you are powerless to prevent it. And don't beg because nobody ever begged their way out of a Russian prison cell.

The plan was to attach a Greenpeace pod to Gazprom's platform and launch a peaceful protest against oil being pumped from the icy waters of the Arctic. However, heavily armed commandos flooded the deck of the Arctic Sunrise and the Arctic Thirty began their ordeal at the hands of Putin's regime.

Told in the activists' own words and for the first time, this is a dramatic and inspiring story of incarceration and the ensuing emotional campaign to bring the protestors home.

compelling

it was very compelling but ruined by the foul language. Not everyone swears. At times it did detract from the content and at times it was understandable. it's good to know what really happened. Leighton Pugh really brought the book to life. thanks Leighton!
