Nations around the world reject its eco-terrorism tactics.
Governments and courts around the world are finally cracking down on the eco-terrorist organization Greenpeace. The crackdown, which is long overdue, couldnt happen to a more misguided bunch of people.
In early December 2014, more than 20 Greenpeace activists damaged a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a publicity stunt meant to motivate greater government support for renewable-energy sources they think are necessary to battle supposed human-caused climate change. The activists walked into a strictly prohibited area where the Nazca Lines are located in Peru and laid big, yellow cloth letters that read, Time for change; the future is renewable.
Because the Nazca Lines are fragile and footprints can last hundreds of years, not even heads of state are allowed to walk there without special authorization, and even then, they are required to wear special shoes. More than 20 people were arrested for the act, but after being bailed out, they skipped the country and as far as I can determine, Greenpeaces Nazca Destroyers have avoided Peruvian justice to this day.
Canadian courts handed Greenpeace a significant legal setback when it required the group to apologize to Resolute and offer an official notice of correction for some of the false statements it made about Resolutes activities.
ecologist Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace and the former leader of Greenpeace Canada for 15 years ... Greenpeace has placed fundraising ahead of the truth, and they should be made to pay for the damage they have done, Mr. Moore said.
I wish more companies had the backbone to stand up to Greenpeaces extortion tactics. Until they do, when I need forest products, Ill be purchasing from retailers that buy from Resolute, and Ill advise my friends to do the same.

Putin arrested a bunch of them who decided to occupy a drilling rig.
What started out as Greenpeace turned into Red War.
Can I ask a stupid question?
When it comes to these pressure group organizations, such as Greenpeace and PETA, if their causes are so obviously just and right, why do they have to resort to bullying tactics to impress upon people of the rightness and justice of their cause?
For that matter, why do liberals in the political arena, always seem to resort to name calling and distortion of positions, and picking fights at Donald Trump rallies, if it’s so obvious that they are on the right side of history and all that????
Watermelons (green on the outside - red on the inside).
They could make a great “B” movie about someone who hates Greenpeace and happens upon a vintage submarine being sold for scrap.
