Greenpeace has unveiled giant portraits of the activists arrested in Russia as part of the group’s continuing campaign against drilling in the Arctic.

The images were placed outside the London offices of oil giant Shell. The so-called Arctic 30 are awaiting trial on piracy and hooliganism charges after being arrested in the Arctic two months ago.

Greenpeace said it was drawing attention to Shell and its Russian partner Gazprom’s planned joint venture to drill for oil in the Arctic.

Entitled Thirty Acts of Courage, the “exhibition” was officially opened by fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood, who said: “I’m delighted to be able to open this exhibition celebrating the bravery of the Arctic 30. Their audacious efforts to protect one of the world’s last remaining wildernesses from exploitation by the oil industry are an example to us all.”
