    Greenpeace tries painting Icelandic fishing vessel to protest trawling

    Original: http://news.yahoo.com/s/cpress/20050...NlYwMlJVRPUCUl

    ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) - Activists with Greenpeace say they tried unsuccessfully to paint a sign on an Icelandic fishing vessel Saturday, as they continued their campaign against the controversial practice of bottom trawling.

    Members of the environmental group tried painting the word "Legal?" on the Petur Jonsson, but the crew aboard the Icelandic shrimp trawler sprayed them with water, said Bunny McDiarmid, an activist on board the Esperanza.

    Yes, they are. They do something good though, like drawing attention on oil tankers and their bad shape. But that is about the only good thing they have done. Greenpeace may have had a good agenda once, but today they are not much else than "green" terrorists.

    Most of the green clubs and associations lost their credibility years ago. Peta and Greenpeace are societies for Yuppies who want to do "something good". Militant greens sometimes destroy farms or factories when they think that someone don´t "benefit the animal rights"...
    (and I know what I´m talking about as I´ve been a "terrorist" myself)
    Die Intellektuellen von heute versuchen, den Nationalismus als eine Sünde gegen die Menschlichkeit zu brandmarken. Sie versuchen, uns glauben zu machen, daß dem Wort Nationalismus eine Infamie anhängt. Aber sie verkennen, daß der Geist des Nationalismus aus der schöpferischen Tiefe der menschlichen Seele stammt. Daß er aufsteigt von dort als das gewaltige Verlangen der Menschen, frei zu sein, frei von fremder Herrschaft, und sich nach eigener Art selber zu regieren! Herbert Hoover

    We should have equipment to prevent these greens in all their ventures, then we would always have something to laugh about in the news.
