Greenpeace crew members detained in Russian jails for two months over their open-sea protest against Arctic oil drilling are "close to shock" over their conditions, a rights activist said Tuesday.And poor dears.
The activists have complained of cold cells and a lack of suitable clothing and food, said Irina Paikacheva, the head of a state-connected regional prisoners' rights watchdog.And as a smoker that is being denormalised by the state I laughed till I was nearly too out of breath to have a smoke.
Several non-smoking activists also complain of being placed in cells with chain-smokers.But more crap here.
A young Finnish female activist is a vegan and unable to eat prison food, Paikacheva said, adding that prison officials had denied her request for vitamins to be delivered to her.Being a vegan is a choice not a necessity in life
Under Russian law, prisoners have to hand in their watches and wear shoes without laces. The Finnish activist lacks a thyroid gland and needs to take medicine regularly -- hard to do without a watch.Utter bollocks. My son has no thyroid. He just has to take one tablet in the morning, and one in the evening.
Pampered twats, the lot of them. The rest of us live in the real world,
