Why Greenpeace is a worthy cause

There are many reasons why I think Greenpeace is a worthwhile cause to support.

The organisation is hard working, and campaigns tirelessly on a number of fronts, all over the world. Take this article, from News.com.au as an example of their work to publicise the effects of GM contamination:

EIGHT Greenpeace activists staged a protest in the office of Bayer
CropScience in Melbourne "to show what it's like to have an unwanted
presence of
contamination".Greenpeace is demanding the biotech giant take
responsibility for
a genetic engineering contamination that was revealed in
Victoria last week.

"Bayer don't seem to care that their genetically
engineered canola has
contaminated Australian exports to Japan, so we're
here to start holding them
accountable," campaigner Jeremy Tager said from
outside the building.

Or this one, from the Edinburgh Evening News, which takes a look at a legal bid by Greenpeace to protect dolphins from fishing nets:

The group is seeking court orders forcing the Government to completely ban "pair
trawling" for sea bass within 200 miles of the UK.
The controversial
fishing
method, which traps dolphins, involves two boats dragging a net
between them.
Greenpeace says Government observers witnessed just one pair
of UK trawlers
killing more than 150 dolphins last year.

Meanwhile, Greenpeace are also fighting against the deterioration of the Spanish coastline due to over development, as evidenced in this article, from the Globe and Mail:

"Pollution, massive urbanization, intensive fishing and the deterioration of
riverbeds are combining to have an amplified ecological impact and are
plunging
the coastline into a precarious state," Greenpeace said in its
fifth annual
report on the health of the Spanish coast.

You can help them to publicise and fight on these causes, and others by agreeing to make a pledge towards Greenpeace today.

Hello there, thanks for the message. That's great. I hope we'll be having a guest blogger blogging from Hiroshima very soon also.

Have you made a pledge to sponsor us?

Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
If ever there was ever a time in our nation's history that called for a change, this is it!
We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
