a great story about what happened politically. And I’m falling asleep at my computer, so I’ll sign off here - hope you enjoyed the action!
Wow! Great job. From watching the video the first time I was confused what Greenpeace was doing, but when I watched it the second time, with the sound on this time, I started to understand.
My Heart stopped when I saw the police ram into your boats, over the people.
The word is out, and the world is contuing to head in the right direction.

is it true that the founder of greenpeace left because he realized that the group or asociation that he founded left his idea or guidelines of why he founded this group. this is talking as a teenager trying to find the truth that is the climate change man made or just a natural cycle like many other thousands of years b4 our generation. b4 u answer this question if u wish to please think at wat i am sayin ty for your time. ps i think i beleive in the cycle sometimes i think why u risk your lifes that happens normaly.
Patrick Moore was an early Greenpeace member not a founder. He now makes lots of money advocating for polluting industries.

This was a major world conference which had a restricted area where you were not allowed to be.
You want to voice your opinion? Fine. Petitions, peaceful protests, media campaigns are all valid. Invading restricted waters near military operations is NOT.
It's a blatant breach of security. You know the USS Cole was bombed from a small boat and sailors died because of this. For this reason, it's absolutely necessary to keep an international conference safe by establishing security zones which are reasonable and exist for a reason.
Greenpeace has to learn that that they're not above the law. This kind of violation is inexcusable. The cops would have been justified in using deadly force, yes killing the Greenpeace members. Why? For the same reason a cop would be justified to use deadly force if a man started charging the Whitehouse with a big suitcase - it's an obvious threat in an area that is restricted for good reason.
You idiots keep pushing this crap and someone is going to get killed.

In this case, the only "permitted" protests took place far far away from where the decision makers could see them.
Our protest got through. The German prime minister herself commented on it. Sure it broke the rules. But delay after delay on climate change is costing lives.
In the US, it's commonplace now to have "free speech" zones - to keep pesky protesters out of sight and out of mind.
Is this the sort of thing we want for our "post-Bush" world?
