Greenpeace going to court again pretending they aren’t involved in politics

Greenpeace is suing the Electoral Commission because the Commission has said that their advertising is a political advert and must contain a promoter statement.

Environmental groups are taking the Electoral Commission to court over a ruling on a climate change campaign.

Greenpeace, Forest and Bird, WWF and others launched the Climate Voter initiative last month.

But the Electoral Commission says the campaign counts as an “election advertisement”, and is therefore subject to rules around wording of communications and spending restrictions.

Greenpeace says the ruling could gag grassroots advocacy groups – and the organisations are planning to take a freedom of speech test case to the High Court.

Eco-terrorist Pirates in our waters is more offensive

The Sea Shepherd pirates are in Dunedin refuelling and taking the opportunity to attack the Japanaese and insist our government does the same thing.

The NZ Herald reports:

The Government should strongly censure Japan after one of its whaling vessels entered New Zealand’s waters, the Green Party says.

The Shonan Maru No. 2, which provides security for the Japanese whaling fleet, entered New Zealand’s 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ) on Friday.

Anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd said the Japanese ship had been tailing its protest vessel, the Steve Irwin, after a recent clash in which two ships collided. The Sea Shepherd vessel docked in Dunedin to refuel early this morning.

Foreign Minister Murray McCully said it was disappointing the Japanese vessel had entered New Zealand’s EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone).  Read more »

Rodney Hide on the Green taliban

Rodney Hide points out in the Herald on Sunday that Greenpeace have only themselves to blame for the predicament of their pirates hooligans.

Greenpeace writes up the activists as a cross between Batman and Wonder Woman. And here’s the logic: Politics doesn’t work. We are powerless. Greed is dictating outcomes. Time is running out. We need to even the playing field. Give voice to the voiceless. We must act. That’s the propaganda of demagoguery. Greenpeace says its activists act with the “courage of their conviction” and “take full responsibility for their actions”. And that they “bend rules” and “push boundaries”.

Well, they may have bent one too many rules and pushed one boundary too far. It’s the Russian Government they have tangled with. It’s not known for being a soft touch. But not to worry, the activists have the “courage of their conviction” and “take full responsibility for their actions”.

That means accepting the consequences. That’s looking like a long spell in prison. That’s what it means when you put your “own personal liberty on the line”.

Of course, Greenpeace could do peaceful protest against Arctic drilling by standing outside the Russian Embassy. But that wouldn’t titillate the news. Such a protest would not be reported. Far better to be boarding a rig, with protest banners and embedded journalists. That’s news.

It is also likely to mean a spell in some pretty hard prisons. The Russians are immune to public relations campaigns.

And that’s money. Greenpeace is a multinational organisation that rakes in hundreds of millions of dollars. It does so by endless protest and always upping the ante to secure headlines. The Russian Government taking the Greenpeace 30 captive and charging them is gold to Greenpeace. It will give them continuous news coverage, endless opportunities to protest, and flood their coffers with donations. It doesn’t do anything to make the planet a better place. But then that’s not its point.

Greenpeace are corporate hypocrites.
