I joined Greenpeace more than 20 years ago. I wish I could say that my experience has been good. It hasn’t. I am highly critical of the top management deliberately avoiding an investigation into CHEMTRAILS and also, let’s face it, Greenpeace’s websites give over huge amounts of marketing space to LEVI JEANS and other big corporations who have been “named, shamed and then promoted & advertised to the Greenpeace crowd”… Frankly, I find the management deeply weird and seem to be more interested with MEMBERSHIP & MERCHANDISE sales than anything else…. Hence, I wonder now, is this latest escapade in Russia a RECRUITMENT & DONATIONS DRIVE? It probably is – and I am ripped between one half saying its better that people donate to Greenpeace, and the other half of me saying that really, there is virtually NO DIRECT ECOLOGICAL CONSERVATION PROJECT sponsored by Greenpeace at the moment….
I’m sorry to report that more than 20 Greenpeace members have got themselves arrested at gunpoint in Russia – they seem to have been arrested by the Russian version of the SAS…
I donated about a hundred thousand pounds’ worth of video gear to Greenpeace, and they have made some great instructional videos – but right now, I’d like to see the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT CUT THE 50% TAX ON SOLAR PANELS and I would prefer Greenpeace to be handing out cheques and donations to REAL-LIFE conservation projects, and creating fresh set-ups which protect and conserve wildlife than these high-profile high jinx escapades with clothes manufacturers. Greenpeace members have been MURDERED in the past by the FRENCH GOVERNMENT – the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior is still an incident which even some Greenpeace members themselves know nothing about.
I established my own ecological foundation and have planted and self-seeded thousands of trees and created a nature reserve for rabbits, eagles, owls, pheasants and all kinds of critters – I wish Greenpeace would follow my suggestion and open up nature reserves using members’ donations. I will be embarking on a big wildlife 3D Super-definition filming project soon. I believe in hands-on direct Nature Conservation – not building a ‘brand’ which is what Greenpeace has become.
