Greenpeace head offers himself as human bail
The head of Greenpeace International has written to Russia's president, offering himself as human bail for 30 environmental activists being detained in Murmansk.
Kumi Naidoo delivered the letter to the Russian embassy in The Netherlands today, and asked for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
Port Colborne's Paul Ruzycki is among 28 Greenpeace activists and two journalists who've been held since their ship ``Arctic Sunrise'' was seized by the Russian coast guard after a protest outside an oil rig September 18th.
Last week, they were charged with piracy, which carries a 15-year prison term.
Naidoo says piracy charges don't make sense.
