Russia-Might-Grant-Pardon-to-Hooligans-Just-Not-to-the-Arctic-30-408181-2-1.jpg

On the July 6th edition of  Your Call, we’ll revisit our conversation with Ben Stewart about his new book, Don’t Trust Don’t Fear Don’t Beg: The Extraordinary Story of the Arctic 30. The book chronicles the imprisonment of 30 peaceful Greenpeace activists who were thrown into a Russian prison for protesting oil drilling in the Arctic Circle. Stewart says the Arctic is in grave danger. What’s been done to save it? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with me Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Ben Stewart, head of media at Greenpeace, and author of Don’t Trust, Don’t Fear, Don’t Beg: The Extraordinary Story of the Arctic 30
