The Real "Greenpeace"

The Real "Greenpeace"

Drawn by Joe HF.


Sorry for getting overtly political, but I've been seeing Vomika's Greenpeace themed advertising, and wanted to make a response.

Don't get me wrong, I wholeheartedly support both the ideals of being Green, and being anti-war.

However, specifically relating to the organisation "Greenpeace", I find their methods to be somewhat hypocritical, and several of their views seem based on nothing but pseudoscience and nonsense.

Vandalism and violence are not the ways to support noble ideals of peacefulness and environmental awareness.

Greenpeace Political Protest GM Violence Vandalism Graffiti Science

In my opinion, to answer your '' What happened to this'', I think most of the time when people go to the extreme (Religions, associations, society...) It ends up like this : Being violent, vandalism, using bad words, The main subject is in some way ''diverted''. —  xLitchi

Greenpeace was founded in an age when environmentalism was an abnormality and had to be fought for. Nowadays people are actually willing to be environmentally conscious and live "greener" so Greenpeace is at a loss. They need to shift their methods away from confrontation ("Us and Them" mentality) and start trying to find unity and consensus with opponents and issues, respectively. —  Hababoon
