The following message was recieved by me:

"Urgent action needed: Help Free the Rainbow Warrior

Following a recent non-violent, peaceful protest, against the destruction of African forests, the Spanish Government detained our flagship. They've offered to let us buy the ship's freedom with a Euro 300,000 in bond, along with a promise to undertake no more marine actions for the environment in Spanish waters. Never!

Help the Rainbow Warrior get back to the business of protecting forests, and tell the authorities they can't silence our voices. Please act now:

"Victory - Rainbow Warrior is free

Today the Rainbow Warrior was released by Spanish Government after 20 days confined to port. A huge thanks to the overwhelming support for all of you who sent an amazing 33,000 letters to the Spanish Government in one week asking for the ship's release. Even rock stars and politicians offered their help. The result: a resounding victory!

For the very latest news on the release.

While we are very happy that the ship is released but here are some sobering facts:

In the 20 days the Warrior has been under arrest in Valencia:

Estimated tons of wood imported into the Valencia region: 40,600

Estimated value of wood from illegal sources imported into Spain: 14,410,960 Euros

So we will be getting back to fighting forest destruction.

Thank you again for your support!
