Greenpeace activists face Christmas in jail for peaceful protest at Copenhagen climate talks

Four environmental activists are facing Christmas in a Danish jail for the heinous crime of interrupting a few politicians' dinner.
The Greenpeace volunteers were trying to encourage some of the heads of state in Copenhagen for the recent climate talks to show some real leadership - and demand a binding treaty likely to stave off the worst aspects of devastating climate change.
Not only were they ignored when it came to agreeing a treaty, they were rounded up and arrested too - and now face Christmas in prison.
I've written to the Danish authorities today demanding they are immediately released on bail: you can find out more about the case, and take action yourself, here.
