Peg BS: Bush v. Greenpeace........... (26) RE: BS: Bush v. Greenpeace........... 22 Jan 04


Good god, do people STILL think Greenpeace blew up that ship? Hard to believe that misunderstanding is still alive and well...

Greenpeace was protesting underwater nuclear explosions (conducted by the French) near the Moruroa (sp?) Atoll, which, being near Australia and   New Zealand was in what had been designated a nuclear-free zone. Greenpeace's boat, the Rainbow Warrior, was blown up and a photographer and crewman were both killed. The French government was never indicted for this crime, as it was deemed an accident.

I used to work for Greenpeace in the 1980s and was having to explain away this misunderstanding a lot in those days...pity it's still out there.
