Ben Stewart, a former Guardian Student Journalist of the Year, was the expedition leader on Greenpeace's 1st mission to confront Arctic oil drillers off the coast of Greenland in 2010.  His activism has led him to break into power stations & scale smokestacks across Europe.  He was one of 6 protesters cleared of criminal damage to Kingsnorth power station in  a groundbreaking trial, whose verdict the NYT described as one of the seminal moments of 2008. 
    His book,  DON'T TRUST, DON'T FEAR, DON'T BEG: THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF THE ARCTIC 30, chronicles the events leading up to the arrests & imprisonment of 28 Greenpeace activists & 2 journalists in 2013, & their charge of piracy, which carries a sentence up to 15 years , for protesting the Russian oil corporation, Gazprom's, drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Not only does it give insights into what they went through, but the surprisingly well organized and supportive actions on the part of their Russian fellow prisoners in the Murmansk SIZO 1 isolation prison, where they were jailed while awaiting investigation and trial.
