What are peoples thoughts on Greenpeace and the "worthwhile" work they do?

Personally I think they are increadibly misguided fools, and what angered me most was their hypocritical blockading the land rover plant, when they use land rovers themselves.

The second thing that angers me is Animal rights campagners, what is the point I mean they are simply "eco-terrorists" trying to enfore their views on us the majority.

Please discuss I would value your Inputs.

They represent a viewpoint and they lobby on that viewpoint - like most other NGOs they are a neccessary part of our democracy, whether you agree with their opinion or not. When they break the law or lie is when I question their right to existance. Greenpeace, for instance, publish a large amount of incorrect material concerning issues such as GM and the enivronment, and this does annoy me greatly.

It was most likely not greenpeace but I work for Glaxo Smithkline and the protests we get here are just so pathetic. I really do feel sorry for them. They just whack at the gates and shout stuff through megaphones, then the police come and they stand around for a few hours then they get bored and go home. I really don't see what it achieves. Especially as there arn't even any in-vivo labs at this site.

Maddox wrote an article about this once, and once again the Best Man in the Universe has altered my viewpoint to become congruent with his own.

Am I starting to sound like Profesh? I used the word "clientelle" earlier.

should all the information the Govt gives in unbiased and true - uh i dont think so

and if you knew anything about Green peace then you would know that they dont spend all their time blocking roads they actually are involved in other things like trying to cut down on climate change related deaths

oh and as for animal rights campaigners - you lot are talking about animal rights activists BIG DIFFERENCE
one uses direct action the other uses indirect action the RSPCA are a campaigning orgainisation and im yet to meet a single person including people who have worked at testing plants who have been threatened by them. ALF on the other hand are activists and yes they are dangerous people

please dont sterotype in future

Greenpeace itself gets on my pecks as they just seem to enjoy getting themselves into trouble, but animals have to live. and so do trees or we wont get any oxygen, the cause is right the method is wrong. :tsr:

Start using real words, correctly spelled, and you may well be on to something there.

Animal rights activists have a few bolts loose. Instead of harping on and making ridiculous protests which further convines everyone they are idiots, they should campaign for the rights of HUMANS who are treated like animals in darfur, north korea, zimbabwe. Get a sense of perspective about where animals come in the order of things.
