Ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity
One year before the funding of Greenpeace the initial spark came in form of a benefit concert with Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Phil Ochs in Vancouver. The first action was the heroic attempt to prevent a nuclear test by the U.S.A with a fishing boat which failed but triggered a protest movement.
In 1985 an activist ship, Rainbow Warrior, should protest against French nuclear tests. While anchored in the New Zealand port of Auckland she was sunk by agents of the French Foreign Intelligence Service. Greenpeace photographer Fernando Pereira drowned.
In 2014 it became known that losses totaling 3,8 million Euros were incurred as a result of forward exchange transactions made by an Greenpeace employee to hatch currency fluctuations.
On the way from a hippie movement to an eco-corporation the fire of enthusiasm gradually died out before a girl called Greta appeared on the scene and attracted the hatred of the couch potatoes.
Ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity.
