As I anticipated yesterday, I joined today's demonstration in Madrid in front of the Danish Embassy for the release of the four Greenpeace activists who'd invited themselves at last week's royal gala dinner in Copenhagen.
There is a great YouTube video that shows why they did it, how they did it.
Strangely, I can't find on Greenpeace International's website any online petition demanding the release of their four comerades who are being punished arbitrarily (incomunicado in a jail over the festive season with no court hearing, until at least 7 January). But if you want to tell the Danes to stop being silly, you can sign the online petition Greenpeace-España has put up.
Why the Danish authorities have gone totally over the top remains a mystery. The only thing we know is that the boomerang effect is inevitably going to grow in the next couple of weeks.
