"Greenpeace in India backed by lakhs of supporters from across the country will keep using peaceful confrontation to expose environmental problems, hold polluters and those who violate our laws across the world to account and ensure that as India develops, it does so without destroying what we love best about it. We can’t do it without you. Because you give Greenpeace a lot of strength and support so it can continue to do it's work.
As an organisation, all we want to do is make sure that our beautiful country is fit to live in for our children and their children. We might appear to be a pain in the neck but we won’t stop speaking up for those who don’t have a voice. That’s because we act based on our values. And one of our values is that if we see something wrong, we don’t cross the road and ignore it, we do something about it. We just can’t help it, its part of our DNA." - Samit Aich, Greenpeace India, Executive Director
