Shell & the Arctic 30
Many thanks to all of you who signed the Free the Greenpeace Arctic 30 Petition – it turns out you are in esteemed company.
Paul McCartney also wrote a private letter to Vladimir Putin, who is a big Beatles fan. In the letter Macca shares the admiration we all have for the Arctic 30 and, most importantly, he calls for their release.
A favourite line reads: "Forty-five years ago I wrote a song about Russia for the White Album, back when it wasn't fashionable for English people to say nice things about your country. That song had one of my favourite Beatles lines in it: 'Been away so long I hardly knew the place, gee it's good to be back home.' "Could you make that come true for the Greenpeace prisoners?"
Although eight activists have now been discharged, as I write, 26 are still on bail with charges hanging over them that may still result in imprisonment. Our thoughts are with them.
It was a heartening moment to see footage of the two Russians being released, and their unrelenting determination to keep working for the good of our planet.
Denis Sinyakov and Andrey Allakhverdov kiss their wives for the first time in over two months. See the footage here.

Last year, when we launched the world's fist QR code sushi alongside the Marine Stewardship Council MSC, a French TV company filmed our exploits and it has recently been shown in France. The UK seems ahead of the French on traceability, which is, on the face of it, surprising. Especially as we are governed by the same European laws. But then again, perhaps less surprising when you recall the 'horsegate' scandal – a travesty that emerged from a country so legendary for its food culture.
