  • Stupid, who us?

    Blogpost by Kathy Cumming - August 20, 2009 at 10:18

    In true Greenpeace style, last night’s Age of Stupid premier (co-hosted by ourselves and Oxfam) was a little seat of the pants. Less than an hour from show time, the green carpet hadn’t been rolled out, the carrots and celery remained unchopped and un... Read more >

    Today we stepped up the pressure on Foodtown to get serious about putting in place a policy that would ensure it will only sell truly sustainable seafood.

    We’ve just returned from the Quay St Foodtown in downtown A... Read more >

  • NZ Govt likened to sheep in Bonn

    Blogpost by Geoff Keey - August 12, 2009 at 9:17

    Interesting to note that the NZ Government is claiming its emissions reduction target has gone down well at the UN climate talks here in Bonn.

    Frankly, that's untrue.
