LONDON (AP) — Relatives of a British freelance journalist jailed in Russia with a group of Greenpeace protesters have demonstrated outside Russia's London embassy to call for the group's release.
Videographer Kieron Bryan, a Russian photographer and 28 Greenpeace activists have been held since their ship, the Arctic Sunrise, was seized by the Russian coast guard after protesting near a Russian oil rig on Sept. 18.
They were initially accused of piracy, though Russian officials later said the charge been downgraded to hooliganism, which carries a maximum seven-year sentence.
Bryan's mother Ann Bryan said those arrested had "more than served their punishment." She called for "common sense, and a sense of fair play and justice" to prevail.
The family and several dozen supporters held their silent vigil outside the Russian embassy on Saturday.
