Greenpeace show Gazprom the red card at a Real Madrid press conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Russian oil giant wants to risk the Arctic for oil. Greenpeace took action to highlight these risks at a press conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, before the Champions League match between FC Copenhagen and Real Madrid. The Russian oil giant is among the major partners of the European Champions League tournament and has recently signed a deal to become sponsor of the world's soccer foundation, FIFA, as well.

The simple banner rolled out with a direct message to stop the company's environmental destruction : "Save The Arctic -- Show Gazprom the red card". Gazprom wants to begin the first oil production ever in the icy waters of the Arctic.

The last time Greenpeace interrupted this happened, our video was banned from YouTube - here is is on vimeo: http://vimeo.com/73215350 ;)
