Detailed Information:
Greenpeace has been campaigning against environmental degradation since 1971 when a small boat of volunteers and journalists sailed into Amchitka, an area north of Alaska where the US Government was conducting underground nuclear tests. This tradition of 'bearing witness' in a non-violent manner continues today.

Greenpeace organises public campaigns

-for the protection of oceans and ancient forests,

-for the phasing-out of fossil fuels and the promotion of renewable energies in order to stop climate change

-for the elimination of toxic chemicals

against the release of genetically modified organisms into nature

-for nuclear disarmament and an end to nuclear contamination.

Greenpeace does not solicit or accept funding from governments, corporations or political parties. Greenpeace neither seeks nor accepts donations which could compromise its independence, aims, objectives or integrity. Greenpeace relies on the voluntary donations of individual supporters, and on grant-support from foundations.
