She's been bombed, impounded, rammed by government ships, raided by police... and loved by millions of people. After 52 years at sea (21 years as a Greenpeace campaigning ship), the Rainbow Warrior II retired from her Greenpeace life on August 16th 2011.
She has challenged the legal system and won, she’s confronted environmental crimes, relocated the population of a South Pacific Island contaminated by radiation, provided disaster relief to victims of the 2004 Tsunami in South East Asia, and sailed against whaling, war, global warming, and other environmental crimes on every ocean of the world.
Take a look at these Tales from the Rainbow Warrior to find out more about her battles, victories and humanitarian work.
